A nice slice of the final build of Final Fantasy XV has been distributed yesterday to Japanese gamers via a demo called “Judgement Disk.” The name isn’t random, as Square Enix wants fans to use to to “judge” the game with their own eyes.
And at least for the visuals (your mileage may vary on the gameplay, but personally I’m absolutely thrilled) that judgement is very positive, especially on PS4 Pro, where the game can be set on two different options. “Lightweight” uncaps frame rate, at the price of a bit of visual fidelity. While the lightweight option definitely does not look bad, the queen of visuals is the “High Image Quality” option, that caps frame rate at 30, but pushes the visual quality to really high levels.
If you’re curious, you can check out our screenshot comparison here, but if you want an extensive look at how the game looks at the best it can on a 1080p screen, with the high Image quality option set on PS4 pro, you have come to the right place.
Below you can see over 450 screenshots of the game captured directly with an Elgato HD 60 capture card. It looks absolutely fantastic, blowing older builds out of the water. Of course keep in mind that mild spoilers from the first hour of the game are included, but the pictures are presented in random order to mitigate that.
If you can’t believe your eyes, you can download the demo yourself. Find out where and how here. You can also watch the beautiful opening CGI cutscene, and a trailer that is shown at the end of the demo.
Below you can see a few screenshots of pictures taken automatically by Prompto during gameplay. I added them because they’re cute, but they’re definitely not taken at the same level of quality of the game itself, so don’t consider them representative of the visuals of Final Fantasy XV. They aren’t.
