Square Enix has confirmed that Final Fantasy XIII-2 will be following in its predecessor’s footsteps by getting a full PC release on Dec. 11. The game’s Steam page is up and running with a new trailer, seen above, and a whole host of screenshots showing off how gorgeous it will look.
Learning from the mistakes of the Final Fantasy XIII PC release, the company has also promised to deliver Final Fantasy XIII-2 with the ability to switch between both 720p and 1080p running at 60fps. Gamers won’t have to mod this game to run it at full potential. You can pre-order it now at 10 percent off until release.
Gamers won’t have to mod Final Fantasy XIII in the near future anymore, either. Along with the release of its sequel, Square Enix has promised that it is “working hard to improve your experience on Steam,” and the company will give an official update to allow the game to jump between 720p and 1080p resolutions as well as other graphical upgrades.
Growing pains, I suppose. Porting Final Fantasy games to the PC is still a new prospect for Square Enix, so it’ll get it right eventually. Just like how Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII were experiments to figure out how to quickly develop a full Final Fantasy game in a speedy manner, consider this practice for whenever Square Enix decides to bring Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy Type-0 HD to PCs.
Final Fantasy XIII-2 will release on the PC on Dec. 11, but there is no official word on the Final Fantasy XIII patch. I expect it won’t take too long.
