Hardcore role-playing game lovers are in for a treat. Square Enix has just released “Final Fantasy Type-0” for the personal computer.
The tale of Class Zero
The game tells the story of a group of fourteen magic students chosen to battle the forces that threaten their country. It was initially released in 2011 for the PlayStation Portable under the title “Final Fantasy Agito XIII.” On March 2015, a high-definition port was released for the PS4 and the Xbox One.
According to the press release made available by Gamasutra, the PC port of the game includes the following improvements: “in-game battle camera, full STEAM achievements and trading cards.” The motion blur settings that have plagued previous players in past games are now scalable. Moreover, full controller support is added, as well as updated graphic resolution controls. Players will also be able to increase blood levels and boost the speed of the playable characters.
The minimum system requirements of the game are as follows:
Operating System: Windows 7, 8, 8.1 64bit
Processor: CPU Core i3 2.5GHz
Memory: RAM 4GB
Disk Space: HDD/SSD 30GB
Video: GTX560Ti or AMD Radeon 7790 mp4 [H.264]
Sound: DirectX XAudio2API
DirectX®: 11 and over
The news is not free from problems, though. Players are complaining about a number of factors with regards to this PC release. For one, users over at Reddit are complaining about the 30 frames per second to which the game functions.
“I’m normally not a huge stickler for framerate, but with a game like this I’d really appreciate 60FPS. I’m gonna have to wait and see,” a user called Hero-Sloth wrote.
The official Twitter account of Final Fantasy has already confirmed that the framerate will not be unlocked to those wishing to run at 60 frames.
@D_S_O_Gaming The framerate will not be unlocked I'm afraid
