For many people, Final Fantasy XII is one of their favorites in the series, and they’ve been waiting for the super-duper HD remastering for quite some time. There’s been an even longer wait for the PC version. Now at last everybody will have everything, as Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age becomes available for PCs today.
But was there really an advantage to waiting that long? ..There actually was. PC gamers will get some extra features that weren’t in the console remaster of FFXII and definitely weren’t in the 2006 original. Playing it on the PC will give you the ability to view your surroundings in Super Triple Cinemascope by chaining together three monitors, giving you a complete 48:9 all-encompassing view. In addition, unlike the console version, the PC FFXII will always run at 60fps (well, depending on the machine you have).
There’s more too. Here’s Square’s full list of features:
- 60fps – Ivalice will look better than ever with the game running at 60 frames per second.
- Compatible with 21:9 ultra-wide monitors – Up to three HD monitors can be used for a potential 48(16×3):9 experience.
- New Game Plus and New Game Minus – Post-game content modes are now accessible from the beginning of the game.
- Three background music options – The original, re-orchestrated and soundtrack versions are now available from the beginning of the game.
- Maximized License Points and Gil – New functionality added to grant players max License Points and Gil from the configuration screen.
- Full controller support, Steam Trading Cards and more to optimize the PC player experience.
How ’bout that, huh? Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age is available now on Steam.
