Final Fantasy XV Elemency

Final Fantasy XV is going to be released for Xbox One and PlayStation 4, as the PC version of the game has not been announced. Usually PC games have better effects, textures and image quality compared to their console counterparts. However, in the case of current generation of consoles or more specifically Final Fantasy XV photorealism on Xbox One and PlayStation 4 is better than expected, according to developers.

Speaking with IGN Final Fantasy XV’s World Art Director, Isamu Kamikokuryo, revealed that the level of Final Fantasy XV photorealism that can be achieved was far greater than expected, this is probably because of the console power of the current generation.

He said that in the past the designers would create detailed concept art for the developers to re-create it in the game. However, the level of Final Fantasy XV photorealism they achieved is amazing.

In the past, we designed image boards for detailed concept art that the team would take and re-create in the game. With Final Fantasy XV, the level of photorealism that can be achieved was far greater than our expectations. When we actually went in and created the environments in the game, it ended up feeling unnatural, so we would identify those areas and make the necessary adjustments and improve on it further.

He further said that now designer only hands concept art to the developer which is then translated into a game.

There was continuous back and forth between design and production in creating this world. Until now, it was pretty much a one way conversation in which the person designing would hand something off to the person creating it in the game, but now it felt like we were engaged in a two way conversation and that was a huge change compared to past titles.

The PC version of the game has not been announced, however, according to game director, Hajime Tabata, if they make a PC port for Final fantasy XV it will be a very different project.

Final Fantasy XV is scheduled to release on September 30 for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Hopefully we will get a PC port of the game in the future.
