Royal Edition and Windows Edition both coming in March

An expanded edition of Final Fantasy 15 is heading to consoles on March 6, right alongside the game’s Windows PC release. Final Fantasy 15 Royal Edition for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as well as Final Fantasy 15 Windows Edition, will include all previously released content for the game and several additions.

The biggest change coming in the Royal Edition is an expansion of part of Final Fantasy 15’s game world. Players can roam around a larger version of the city of Insomnia, a dungeon that offers new side quests and enemies. There are other ways to check out even more of Eos, like a boat that players can use to travel around and fish in between Cape Caem and Altissia.

Just as interesting, though, is a first-person mode, which should be the most surprising way to revisit the game. Square Enix didn’t say if that new camera option also applies to the included season pass content, which combines all the character-focused episodic releases, as well as the game’s multiplayer mode.

All of this content is thrown in alongside the base game, and it will be available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. Square Enix also announced the hardware specifications for the previously announced Windows Edition, including the amount of hard drive space required. It may be a good idea to start clearing out old files — if you want to play the game in 4K HDR, you’ll need 155 GB of storage available. Even without 4K, the game requires 100 GB of space.

Pre-orders go live for the Windows Edition on Feb. 1; depending if you pre-order through Steam, the Windows Store or Origin, you’ll get a different special pack of extra content. Those are the “Fashion Collection” of outfits; “Powerup Pack” of attack boosts and “Decal Selection” of car customizations, respectively.

Final Fantasy 15 debuted in November 2016 after several years of development.
