Highlights
  • Final Fantasy XV is available on the PS4, PS4 Pro, and Xbox One
  • It is priced at Rs. 3,499 onwards
  • The game has three different editions

Final Fantasy XV is the latest entry in the long-running role-playing game (RPG) series. It’s the first mainline single-player entry since Final Fantasy XIII, which released in 2010 while Final Fantasy XIV is a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG). As we stated in our Final Fantasy XV review, you don’t need to play previous Final Fantasy games to understand this one. Each game is a standalone entry with its own unique story.

If you're planning on buying Final Fantasy XV today, here are all the other crucial details you need to know before you go shopping.

 

Final Fantasy XV release date
Final Fantasy XV is out on November 29 the world over. However gamers have been able to play it even earlier thanks to a street date break. A little over than a week ahead of the official Final Fantasy XV release date, gamers in Peru, Argentina, and the UAE were already playing it, with some stores in markets like the US and UK also releasing it early. It has been long enough for some to have uploaded the game’s entire ending, and important plot twists on YouTube, riddling parts of the Internet with spoilers.

Final Fantasy XV price
Final Fantasy XV retails for Rs. 3,499 on the PS4 and Xbox One in India. Internationally, gamers pay $60 (approximately Rs. 4,120) for the game. There’s a Final Fantasy XV Deluxe Edition that comes with a steel book, the Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV full-length CGI movie, and download codes for the Masamune weapon, a royal raiment outfit and a new Leviathan paint job for your car in the game. This costs Rs. 5,999 in India and $90 (approximately Rs. 6,176) internationally. These are the two more widespread editions of Final Fantasy XV, with Square Enix and its partners complicating things a bit with a myriad of downloadable content exclusive to specific stores. We’ve outlined three of the main editions of the game below.

Final Fantasy XV review
Our review of Final Fantasy XV is up and to us, it’s one of the better entries in the series despite having some serious narrative issues. You can check out our full review here.

Final Fantasy XV PS4 vs PS4 Pro
Final Fantasy XV is quite the looker on a full-HD display, but we also observed that it is not perfect. Minor concerns include texture pop-in and irregular shadows. On a bigger screen (a 65-inch display in our case), even running at 4K, these problems are magnified. Move closer towards a building and you’ll see windows appearing, while each character’s hair seems to belong in an early PS3 game, and on-screen text, looks to be in low resolution, as does the game’s rest screen that you see when you take a break in the game world’s many inns and camps.

Apart from being able to toggle graphic settings between high and lite, the frame rate is a lot more stable on the PS4 Pro when compared to the PS4. Ground objects appear more detailed in the PS4 Pro version, while the overall image quality is a bit sharper. This is a carry over from what we experienced with the Final Fantasy XV Judgement Demo. The HDR option is present as an option for both consoles. You can check out our detailed impressions here.
