Tabata Talks FFXV Demo Tech Specs, Possibility Of DLC
After last week's hugely hyped "Uncovered" event, we learned the worldwide launch date for Final Fantasy XV: September 30.
We also found out about a new feature film, anime series, and app tied to the impending title, along with several super-special editions.
The new Platinum Demo has gotten the most attention, however, and not all the feedback is positive. Director Hajime Tabata recently spoke to Dengeki Online about that demo - and other topics - and dished out some numbers. As translated by DualShockers, Tabata said the team used a "dynamic resolution, with 1080p being the limit," and the frame rate...well, he would only say the demo wasn't supposed to be a "technical showcase." Yeah, well, when you tell us the demo exists to show the world "finalized graphics and combat/magic mechanics," then the complaints are perfectly legit.
Tabata added that the tech specs for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the demo are the same, but he can't be sure if that'll be the case with the final product. Lastly, he said Square Enix will spend more time between now and the launch to optimize the game, and the full experience will be playable at E3 in June.
Elsewhere in the interview, Tabata said there could be free and premium DLC for FFXV, though he didn't reveal any specific plans, and a PC version of the game might come out after the PS4 and Xbox One versions drop, but Square Enix hasn't decided on this just yet.
