Final Fantasy XVI’s long-rumored and all but confirmed PC version has now been made official by the game’s producer, Naoki Yoshida. He told fans on September 2 that they can expect more information on the timing of the port before the end of the year, and revealed that two DLC expansions are also definitely happening. A new, free update for the PlayStation 5 role-playing game capped off the good news.
Version 1.10 dropped for free on September 3. It adds customizable costumes for each of the main protagonists as well as a new Onion Sword for Clive to wield. There’s also an extensive list of patch notes, most of which have to do with how arcade mode is scored and fixing a handful of bugs. One nice feature is that you can finally now see the cooldown for each ability from the skill menu.
Final Fantasy XVI’s PC version was originally referenced in the game’s very first trailer before later being removed. Square Enix has repeatedly been asked about the timing for a PC port, with Yoshida even telling fans at one point just to buy a PS5 instead of waiting. He then casually mentioned in an interview earlier this year that development on the PC version would begin after the game released in June.
A sizzle reel uploaded by Sony last year signalled that the game’s console exclusivity would only last six months. This has left Xbox owners hopeful the RPG might come to Xbox Series X/S eventually as well, though Microsoft Gaming CEO said recently at Gamescom that he wasn’t rushing Square Enix. Five years later, Final Fantasy VII Remake still hasn’t been ported to the platform.
