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.
Since its launch, Final Fantasy XIV has become the anomaly rather than the norm. It holds the honour of being just about the only subscription-based MMORPG launched since World of Warcraft to have any significant and lasting success. While just about every other MMO has gone F2P, FFXIV and WoW have held out. This may not be for forever though, with Final Fantasy XIV game director Naoki Yoshida admitting FFXIV could go free-to-play if it’s what enough fans want.
Final Fantasy XIV fans have been getting a little hot under the collar with the reveal of the latest trailer for its Stormblood expansion during the FanFest keynote. Square Enix has used it to show off the all-new job (not as boring as it sounds) of being a Samurai.
The rate at which Final Fantasy games are getting remastered / remade is kind of astonishing. Hot on the heels of the Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster on PC last month, Square Enix has announced Final Fantasy XII is getting the special treatment. I think the best bit about all this is that Final Fantasy XII came out on PS2, and a remaster has been announced two generations later for PS4, all in the time since Final Fantasy XV was originally announced. Well done, Square Enix. 
Square Enix has announced Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, the concluding chapter to the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy, will be coming to PC on December 10th. The series has taken its sweet time getting here, but get here it has. In Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, players once more take control of the titular heroine Lightning, embarking on a massive time-hopping quest to save the world from total destruction. Trust a JPRG to get all histrionic.
The third and final part of the Final Fantasy Lighting Trilogy is set to appear on PC this December. Ever since Final Fantasy XIII made it over to PC it was only a matter of time until the rest followed suit, with Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII concluding the Fabula Nova Crystallis subseries on PC.
Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn is set to get its first fully-fledged expansion pack in just over two months’ time, and Square Enix has sent along the opening cinematic for the mammoth content pack. The Final Fantasy series and cinematics have gone together like Chocobos and racing for years now, and this latest trailer for Final Fantasy 14: Heavensward doesn’t disappoint.
Square Enix has officially dated Final Fantasy XIV’s first expansion - Heavensward. Final Fantasy XIV players who pre-order the expansion will gain access to Heavensward on June 19th as part of an early access weekend, while on June 23rd it will be available for all subscribers to purchase.
Square Enix has announced the first expansion for its revitalised MMORPG Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, releasing a teaser trailer and a few details of what the expansion will bring. The expansion, dubbed Heavensward, will be released Spring 2015 and the developers are set to give a more detailed announcement of the new features on October 25 at the London Fan Festival.
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.
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 Fantasy XIII arriving next month for the bargain bin price of $16/£11.
