In a recently released video message, Producer Naoki Yoshida talks about the recent changes to Final Fantasy 16 and upcoming plans for the RPG. Among other things, work on two premium expansions, a free DLC and the PC version of the game was officially announced.
The Japanese-based publisher Square Enix published a new update showcase video for Final Fantasy 16 on social media in the early hours of the morning. In this, producer Naoki Yoshida officially announces work on a PC version of the game, but did not go into more details. According to Yoshida, more information will not follow until the end of the year and the publication will take place in the course of 2024. Square Enix released a short PC trailer for Final Fantasy 16 back in 2020. In February of this year, the publisher confirmed the plans again.
Since this is a Square Enix game, there is a high probability that the PC version of the game will use Denuvo Anti-Tamper technology. A release in the Epic Games Store as well as on Steam is considered fairly certain. Ultimately, one can only hope that the PC version of Final Fantasy 16will be properly optimized and, for example, upscaling techniques will be supported by the game.
It would also be great to see some ray tracing effects. Final Fantasy 16 brings players a whole new storyline within the Final Fantasy universe and takes them into the dark world of Valisthea. As part of the PAX West in Seattle, more content for the action role-playing game was promised. So you are currently working on two paid DLCs for Final Fantasy 16. Final Fantasy XVI was released in June 2023 exclusively for the Playstation 5.
