Final Fantasy 15 PC will take up quite a bit of space on your HDD, but the game will support mods

The PC version of Final Fantasy 15 will take up quite a bit of space on your hard drive, according to early specs, but who cares as long as mods are supported, right?

According to early recommended specs for the PC version of Final Fantasy 15, the game will take up a whopping 170GB.

This bit was revealed in the description of a launch trailer for the PC version, which was apparently pulled. Luckily, Twitter user Nibel hit the print screen key for everyone.

Again, what you see below could be the early specs for PC, as these tend to change closer to release for many games. Just keep that in mind for the time being, along with the fact minimum specs haven't been provided either.


  • Monitor: 4K HDR
  • CPU: Intel i7 3.4ghz or Ryzen 7 1700
  • GPU: GeForce 1080Ti
  • HDD: 170GB

As previously reported, the PC version will feature all sorts of Nvidia tech such as Hairworks, Ansel, ShadowWorks, Flow, and others. It will also run in both native 4K and 8K with HDR10.

Below you will find the list of Nvidia GameWorks technology which will make the game super lovely on PC, per Square Enix.

Nvidia GameWorks:

  • Nvidia Flow – creates vivid, combustible fluid, fire and smoke.
  • Nvidia HairWorks – creates dynamic, life-like hair and fur for characters, animals and monsters that inhabit the game.
  • Nvidia ShadowWorks – enables characters to cast shadows on themselves.
  • Nvidia Turf Effects – creates life-like grass and vegetation in the game environment.
  • Nvidia VXAO – adds depth and realism based on the physics principles shadows and light.

GeForce Experience capture and share tools:

  • Nvidia Ansel: In-game photography tool that allows gamers to compose shots from any position, adjust with post-process filters, capture HDR images in high fidelity formats, and share screenshots in 360 via a smartphone, PC or VR headset.
  • Nvidia ShadowPlay: Highlights automatically captures the player’s greatest gaming achievements in video and screenshot, enabling seamless sharing through social channels.


Final Fantasy 15 on PC will also allow players to explore the world as Noctis in first-person mode instead of third-person if preferred which should make things rather interesting.

Now, about that mod support bit.

According to game director Hajime Tabata, Final Fantasy 15 will for sure contain mod support, but at present, discussions on the modding policy haven't concluded. More information should be made available this fall.

“We definitely want to do it," Tabata told RPS. "We haven’t actually managed to get our full modding policy or discussions on that finished but at the moment we do really want to do it. We’ll have the full details around autumn time.”

Tabata isn't sure whether mod support will be available at release or later, but he wants to make the feature available as "quick as possible."

“I think a lot of people do want the mods as free as possible, and with as few limitations from our side as possible," he said. "So, we are going to look into making that the kind of system we have for the mods, so we’ll have to figure out all the technical terms around that.”

Final Fantasy 15 will be released on PC in early 2018 and will include all free updates and Season Pass content.
