We've had to be patient but Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition will finally launch on PC on March 6th, priced at $49.99. It'll be bundled in with every piece of downloadable content, more than 20 in all, which by all accounts makes FFXV an absolutely huge package. By all accounts, it will also look absolutely phenomenal, although visuals this good comes at a hefty price. Take a deep breath, here are the official Final Fantasy XV PC system requirements.
It's taken 12 damn years, ironically enough, but Final Fantasy XII will finally be gracing us with its presence on PC on February 1st. If you've been playing them in the order they've been released then you've probably had a wild ride flitting from FFXIV to III, IV, XIII, X, IX, now XII and next XV. It's a good job so few of the Final Fantasy games are interconnected. The PC version of Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age remaster will run at 60fps and be compatible with 21:9 ultra-wide monitors, although official 4K support is not provided. 4K or not though, these are some pretty demanding system requirements.
It's rare for 2.5D fighting game to absolutely knock us off our socks with its visuals, but when Dragon Ball FighterZ was unveiled at E3 2017 the immediate reception was that this is was one of the best looking 2.5D fighters we've ever known. Guilty Gear Xrd Rev2 would obviously like a word on this front, but for now, it looks as if DBZ fans are going to be in for an absolute treat, and a true homage to the anime. What will the price be for running it though? Here are the official Dragon Ball FighterZ PC system requirements.
Have you ever heard of anything cooler than a post-apocalyptic kung-fu fable RPG? Thought not. Biomutant turned a few heads when it was announced earlier this year and it's easy to see why. Biomutant harks back to a time when 3D action adventure games weren't afraid to be a little bit experimental and off-the-wall. Biomutant is coming to PC in 2018, but in the meantime here are the official minimum specs for Biomutant PC.
Scorn is nothing if not eye-catching. Horrifically eye-catching, if you will. Ebb software has gone to town on creative a nightmarish universe of bloodied, writhing forms and a fleshy, organic tapestry. Naturally, if you want Scorn looking its absolute worse then you're going to need hardware capable of it. Here are the official Scorn stem requirements.
Star Citizen's Squadron 42 single-player campaign has been a long time coming. Recently, it switched to a totally separate release as well, CIG splintering it off into its own entity. Just like Star Citizen though, Squadron 42 comes with some hefty minimum PC system requirements.
Watch out Farm Sim, there's a new haybale-hurling contender to your agricultural crown. Pure Farming 2018 is one of the first games to be published by Techland, they of Dying Light fame, and it promises to be a hardcore simulation of modern farming.

Remember that game that THQ Nordic was teasing ahead of The Game Awards? Well, it wasn’t Jagged Alliance, despite the strong rumours. Instead, it was Fade to Silence, an ambitious open-world, single-player RPG set during an unrelenting winter with Eldritch horrors lurking just out of sight. It’s actually looking pretty neat, and the best bit is it’s out in Early Access right now.
If you thought the cost of buying a VR headset was prohibitively expensive - think again. An HTC Vive is just a drop in the ocean compared to the sort of gaming PC you'll need to meet DOOM VFR's minimum system requirements. DOOM VFR truly is the foie gras of virtual reality gaming. If you're planning to rip and tear with the best of them then it might be time to think of an upgrade...
City builders are ten-a-penny throughout PC gaming history, but Haemimont and Paradox's Surviving Mars is a little different. As you've probably guessed, Surviving Mars is set on the Red Planet, where one of the first human colonies is being built. Players will have to manage everything from oxygen management to land cultivation on a planet that is much harsher than Earth. Don't just blast off into space willy-nilly though, here are the official Surviving Mars system requirements.
Pillars of Eternity was one of the finest RPGs of the year when it launched in 2015, which is no mean when its chief competition was The Witcher 3.

Adventures and beard stroking await. Before you roll those dice though, be sure to pay close attention to PoE2: Deadfire's PC system requirements.
