    Square Enix has announced that after the highly successful sales of Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age on the PlayStation 4, they will be bringing the game to PC audiences this year. The PC version also boasts new features that were not in the PS4 release, such as the ability to add max Gil from the start, New Game + already unlocked, 60fps, and ultra-wide monitor support. Final Fantasy XII originally launched for the PlayStation 2 in 2006, and sold over 6 million copies. Square will also be holding a launch stream, with both the producer and the director of the game, and they will answer questions from fans.

    Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age will release on Steam on February 1, 2018. It will retail for $49.99, but those who buy it within the launch window will get a 20% discount.

    Everyone here who called it called it.

    It's not really a surprise but nice to see this happening. Those of you interested, I say go for it. I had a great time with it.

    Ooh, NICE! I think I'll definitely jump on this! FF12 is the only main-series FF game I never got around to playing.

    I'm really glad SE has been supporting the PC market so well. I'm not a big fan of FF, but I'm happy to see it get ports to PC.

    I'm happy, too! FFXV Windows Edition particularly has me hyped. Also, in the past, they'd do a quick and shoddy port (*cough* FFXIII *cough*), but it seems they're now putting some efforts into optimization and embracing PC graphical features like Nvidia GameWorks or 21:9 Ultrawide support. Keep it comin'!

    Haven't played the original one is years and I don't have a PS4. Seeing that it's getting ported to the PC is great.

    Right, because millions of people have the money to get a gaming PC, gotcha. I'll keep that in mind when people have stable jobs to where they can fork out thousands of dollars for rigs and games.

    Yeah, big whoop. Who are you to tell people what they should or shouldn't buy? Not everyone is rich and/or has 2000 dollars to spare, unless I missed the part where countries had a perfect economy. :rolleyes:

    I happen to have consoles and a gaming PC, so yeah, case in point, no one cares.

    nhaaaa, the truth is people can easily build a decent gaming pc worth 500$ with just Amd components, plus money u saves from games with greater prices and free of charge online service.

    p.s. tested myself an 500 bucks pc can handle GTAV at medium confings, 1080p and 60fps, which is standard lastgen quality+ online free

    p.s.2 looks u have a lot of complains, man u should study harder and work harder. anything is possible.

    Not true at all, you could easily throw together a used budget rig for around $250 that will play anything currently available, when include free online services, full backwards compatibility, the price of pc game sale, and emulation, your potentially saving hundreds if not thousands in comparison to just one current gen console.


    /on topic, Glad to hear this, I failed to complete the game twice during the ps2 era, and currently have the game sitting in my modded PS3 untouched, but this will probably end up being my go to version if I ever decided to have another go at it.

    Their money, their choice, nothing you can do about it.

    if you dont have money for a medium budget gaming pc you absolutely do not have the money for console gaming either with its online, accessories, more expensive games, worse/no sales, etc. i'm pretty sure it's mostly a personal choice before it being a monetary issue. or like in your case, a wrong, outdated assumption because the console experience is more expensive if you look at it past the purchase of hardware on day one. on top of that, 4 years down the line you're spending another $400 to get a completely new system. on a pc you sidegrade your GPU for $100 to maintain medium performance and you're done with it.

    One of the last FF games missing from PC! Would recommend it, especially in a sale. Interesting to see that more and more console exclusives are coming to PC, which was not the norm a few years ago

    Like Bortz said, called it. SE has made it a habit of adding every recent (and not-so-recent) FF to Steam, and after announcing FFXV on PC even when it's relatively new I knew they'd do the same for FFXII. It's the only reason why I didn't buy it on PS4. Now they just need to do a simultaneous release of FFVII:R for PC and console when it finally comes out in 2025.
