Today Square Enix made the benchmark of the Final Fantasy XV Windows Edition available for download.

The program can be downloaded here. It weigh 3.7 gigabytes. Once you installed it, all you have to do is to select your graphics options, and start the benchmark. Those familiar with Final Fantasy XIV will feel right at home, as it’s pretty much the same procedure, with a very similar program.

Once the benchmark has done its job, it’ll return a score, which basically tells you how capable your PC is to run the game:

12000 or greater Extremely High The game will run exceedingly well. A high frame rate is possible and even richer graphical settings can be used.
9000 to 11999 Very High You can expect the game to run very comfortably. A high frame rate is possible and even higher quality graphical settings can be used.
6000 to 8999 High You can expect the game to run comfortably. It should run smoothly, even at higher graphics settings.
4500 to 5999 Fairly High A standard level of performance can be expected. Adjustments to the graphics settings are recommended if possible.
3000 to 4499 Standard A standard level of performance can be expected.
2500 to 2999 Slightly Low It is possible to play the game, but you may experience a burden on processing when performing some actions. Adjustments to the graphics settings are recommended.
2000 to 2499 Low It is possible to play the game, but all actions will feel sluggish overall. There is a chance that the performance may improve with adjustments to the graphics settings or display resolution.
0 to 1999 Insufficient The system does not meet the minimum requirements to run the game.

It’s worth mentioning that, for some reason, Square Enix decided to include a massive story spoiler in the benchmark. If you have not played the game, or if you mind spoilers, you probably should not run it at all.

On top of the benchmark, pre-purchases are now available on Steam, Origin, and the Windows Store.

Each store has a specific pre-purchase bonus, which you can see below alongside the virtual box art and some lovely key art. Steam players will get the FFXV Fashion Collection for Noctis, Origin customers will receive the FFXV Regalia Sticker Pack, and Windows Store users will get the FFXV Battle Upgrade Pack.

The game will be available on March 6th. If you want to see more, you can check out a trailer, and a batch of 4K screenshots.
