Just recently, Square Enix rolled out the Final Fantasy 15 Benchmark tool to give players an idea of the game’s performance on their systems, however, the benchmark had some issues especially with Nvidia GameWorks, which is evident in our benchmark, and the studio has clarified that these issues will be resolved with the game’s final release.
Square Enix took to the twitter and noted that the Final Fantasy 15 Benchmark tool was rolled out to give players the idea of the visual quality of the game on their systems and added that Level Of Detail issue has been discovered in the Final Fantasy 15 Benchmark tool which is affecting the overall score.
We wanted the benchmark tool to approximate the level of visual quality and performance you can expect from your PC environment when running FINAL FANTASY XV WINDOWS EDITION. A Level Of Detail (LOD) issue has been discovered that affects the benchmark scores.
Furthermore, the developer noted that it is aware of the stuttering issue in the game benchmark tool and will be resolved in the final release.
According to the developer, Final Fantasy 15 Benchmark tool has pre-selected options for simplicity ‘s sake and the final release will be highly customizable and the benchmark is not representative of the final version’s performance.
The benchmark also suffers from stuttering; both of the issues will be addressed in the shipping game.
While the settings in the benchmark are largely pre-selected for simplicity’s sake, the final game will feature highly customizable settings with On/Off options for a wide variety of settings.
The benchmark will give you an idea of how beautiful the game will be upon release, but for the reasons stated above, the benchmark may not accurately reflect the game’s final performance.
Speaking of the game coming to PC, according to the game director, Final Fantasy 15 on PC is a generation ahead of the consoles version.
The reason why the PC version of Final Fantasy 15 will be way ahead of the console versions is that the PC version was developed from the ground up and that is why the PC version of the game has advanced a generation over the console versions.
Final Fantasy XV is a third-person action adventure game developed by Square Enix for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 and will launch for PC on March 6, 2018.
