Today Square Enix released a new batch of screenshots of Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition, that will bring the game to PC.

The screenshots showcase some of the new features that will be included in the Windows Edition (and in the console-bound Royal Edition). We get to see the gang on the boat, the new map that finally opens the ruins of insomnia, the new sidequests against Cerberus and Omega, and the Armiger Unleashed that Noctis will be able to use.

Do keep in mind that some of the screenshots may be considered mild spoilers, so check out the gallery at your own risk.

On the other hand, all the screenies are in shiny 4K, that the Windows Edition will support on rigs that are beefy enough. Speaking of which, you can also check out the updated system requirements at the bottom of the post, including the specs you’ll need to run the game in 4K with HDR.

You can enjoy all the screenshots in the gallery below below.

The game will be available on March 6th on Steam, Origin, and on the Windows Store for $49.99. If you want to enjoy the same features on consoles, but you already bought the base game, you’ll need to buy an additional pack that will update your game to the Royal Edition for $19.99.

Update: the price of the “Royal Pack” that will let you update the base game to the Royal Edition was listed by Square Enix in error, and the publisher clarified that it’s still undetermined.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
