In a matter of days, the Kingdom of Lucis is to sign an armistice, ending a long and bitter conflict with Niflheim. Ahead of the ceremony, Prince Noctis, heir to the Lucian throne, sets forth from his homeland to formalize the union of states through his marriage to the Lady Lunafreya of the imperial province of Tenebrae.

The offer of peace, however, is no more than a ruse to lower the Lucian shield, and the imperial army takes the crown city and its sacred crystal in one fell swoop. En route to his destination, Noctis is shocked to learn that he, his father the king, and his betrothed are believed dead.

Overnight, the dream of peace has faded into a distant memory. His world crumbling around him, Noctis has naught but his resolve and his loyal companions to see him through the trials to come.

Square Enix has officially announced the release date and special features coming to the Windows Edition of Final Fantasy XV. The game will launch on March 7, and will officially be coming with mod support. A host of new PC-exclusive features are also in the works, including 4K textures, Dolby Atmos support, NVIDIA Gameworks integration for effects involving grass, hair, fluids, and shadows – as well as support for NVIDIA’s in-game photo mode. The game will also ship with a new first-person camera option.

Final Fantasy XV’s Windows Edition will be coming to Steam, Origin, and the Windows Store – suggesting that though Steam Workshop support will come to the Steam version, its mods will not be Steam Workshop exclusive. Speaking to Kotaku during Gamescom 2017, Final Fantasy XV’s game director Hajime Tabata spoke of plans for modding tools to be released as well, though the team was still “investigating the right way to go” at the time:

"The policy we want to have is as few limitations as possible, so what we're looking into now and the direction we're considering is a dedicated mod editor and releasing that to users."

Tabata spoke separately to PC Gamer about the team’s initial concerns regarding the addition of mod support:

“Obviously there's some worry about ‘we've made this great world and people might try to stuff all kind of strange things into it and mess it up’ … When we were getting together for discussion, all the people together in the project were airing out their worries, [nude mods] were something most people were really worried about

What's stronger in my mind is the fact that I don't want to limit people too much - this is part of the culture of gaming these days. These people - it's a thing they've bought, it's their game now … I don't think it's a good thing, but we're going to leave it to the moral sense of all the players out there. I basically want, as a principle, to give as much freedom and as little limitations on it as possible."

Tabata concluded that “if things are taken a little too far,” future entries in the Final Fantasy series on PC may not receive mod support.
