The latest system requirements News for Final Fantasy XIII
Full system requirements for Final Fantasy XIII reported on Sep-19-2014

Most people would have heard of the Final Fantasy series. Its been going for decades now and Final Fantasy 13 or XIII actually released in 2009 in Japan. Now, five years later, on October 9th, FFXIII is coming to PC. The linearity of this FF title has been a mild sticking point to reviewers of the console versions but this hasn't stop it from being one of the fastest selling editions of the series, enjoying reported sales of over 7 million copies on console versions alone by the end of 2013.

The fast paced RPG has long been anticipated by the PC audience and the release date is within weeks. Speculating what sort of PC the beautiful world of Cocoon needs to present all its colourful imaginings is now moot as we have the full Final Fantasy XIII system requirements on hand. So let's see if you can run FF13 on your computer.

Final Fantasy XIII Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows XP and Service Pack 2 (SP2)
  • CPU: 2GHz Dual Core processor
  • RAM: 1GB of System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 256MB Graphics Memory
  • GPU: NVIDIA Geforce 8 Series/ ATI Radeon HD 2000 series
  • HD: 30GB
  • DX: DirectX 9.0c

Final Fantasy XIII Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows Vista 7 or 8
  • CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad @2.66 GHz or AMD Phenom II X4 @2.8 GHz processor
  • RAM: 1GB of System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 512 MB Graphics Memory
  • GPU: NVIDIA Geforce GTX 460 or AMD Radeon HD 5870
  • DX: DirectX 11

First thing of note is that the minimum requirements for FFXIII are relatively low by today's PC standards. With only a 1GB RAM requirement even for recommended settings, which should certainly open the game up to many PC gamers. The CPU/ GPU recommended requirements for Final Fantasy XIII are a little more substantial, suggesting the beauty of the game but the hardware requirement called for is still a couple of generations old. The hard drive space required is on the large size as well for FFXIII which is expected from a behemoth of an RPG game like this, particularly from a series renowned for its high-quality Pixar-like pre-rendered cut scenes.

As you may have spotted in the news earlier today, the entire Final Fantasy XIII trilogy will be coming to PC and so its fairly safe to presume that each of the other two FFXIII episodes, called FFXIII-2 and Lightning Returns-FFXIII, will also have similar system requirements to this first title. Don't think too hard about the fact that a game which is 13th in a series is also a trilogy, it's a JRPG after all and these titles often come with their own rules. In point of note, there are in fact a staggering 79 games release in the Final Fantasy series at the time of writing, despite the release of Final Fantasy XV next year.

This is all very exciting and we only have a few weeks to go until PC gamers everywhere can immerse themselves in the full Square Enix FFXIII experience. Now while looking forward to this, we can allow ourselves a rekindled faith that one day Final Fantasy X will also arrive on PC, and the rest while we're at it, because it certainly seems we're getting a bit more love from Japanese developers these days. What do you make of these modest system requirements? Do you plan to pick up the trilogy? Let us know!

Sep-19-2014 In an exciting move from Square Enix, the Japanese publisher has confirmed that the entirety of the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy will eventually be making its way over to PC, beginning with Final Fantas...

Final Fantasy XIII runs at 30FPS on consoles (PS3 & XBOX), I don't use Gedosato, I didn't notice that much of a difference between 1080p and 720p on my display. In any case this is a bad port for framerate. I can play at 30FPS, while my GPU

is at its 70% of usage. But I can experience 60FPS randomly in some areas. In any case I had to downgrade my GPU driver to make it work at a """stable""" framerate.

BE WARNED:
The game is locked at 720p
The game has constant frame dips and can't go over 60fps
The game is very large for what you are getting.
It has no graphic options except windowed or fullscreen.
This is a very poor port.
You should wait to buy the game until these are fixed.

I concur, the port is horrible in it's current state. It is a copy and paste job, without any optimization at all. It's like devs are purposely annoying PC gamers. I never even touched 60 FPS, and my GPU was not even being utilized properly, that it down clocked itself to save energy to 501Mhz from 1050Mhz.

That's how bad it is, even my GPU can not be bothered to power this game. Seriously though they have not improved anything. in fact made it worse, it is very jittery, and doesn't keep a constant frame rate. The very least they could do is improve texture quality, and maybe lighting.

There are workarounds involving GeDoSaTo to increase the resolution up to 2160p (if you want) flying around the game's community hub on Steam already. Not ideal, but a start.

is there a really big difference between 720p and 1080p?
why is than important?
just be happy for that fact that squerenix want to work with PC.
and 60fps is too much as it is. the next-gen console locked at 30fps and it dosent bother me

The perceived difference is obviously subjective. And you clearly can't see it. But that doesn't mean that the different isn't prominent for the rest of us.

Yes you can run it, but the game is optimized. Try changing settings in the nVidia Control Panel like VSync and Triple Buffering.

For those who are still complaining abot the 720p,a modder already released a patch for playing it in 1080p and also added AA,search in google GeDoSaTo and download his tool.Also the american version is 60 gb coz it has dual audio tracks,download the asian version of 20-30gb,audio is og in japaneses,with english subs.

There are no settings, if you have bad framerate, enable VSync and Triple Buffering in the NVIDIA Control Panel.

Can't tell, you should stick with settings from the nVidia Control Panel. Try enabling Triple Buffering and VSync and give the game a try. :/ I have an AMD Card and I had to downgrade my driver just for this game, it isn't optimized.

why people complaining?
just played that game for a couple hours and its a good game.
mostly its because of the graphics.
if people dont like the fact that they cant play on 4k its their problem.
you dont need to be a crybaby about that

That's not it. I'm playing it at 720p and it's fine for me. The real issue is the framerate, the game would be completely unplayable due to the automatic fps cap. I had to fix it by forcing stuff into my GC Panel and that's not cool.
