Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age Launches on PC February 1st - System Requirements Revealed
By Jon Sutton on January 12th, 2018 at 11:28am - original article from game-debate

It's taken 12 damn years, ironically enough, but Final Fantasy XII will finally be gracing us with its presence on PC on February 1st. If you've been playing them in the order they've been released then you've probably had a wild ride flitting from FFXIV to III, IV, XIII, X, IX, now XII and next XV. It's a good job so few of the Final Fantasy games are interconnected. The PC version of Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age remaster will run at 60fps and be compatible with 21:9 ultra-wide monitors, although official 4K support is not provided. 4K or not though, these are some pretty demanding system requirements.

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age Minimum System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Pentium G3260 3.3GHz or AMD FX-4200 3.3GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 2GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX 660 or Radeon HD 6970
  • HDD: 50GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • API: DirectX 11

Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age Recommended System Requirements

  • OS: Windows 7 64-bit
  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 3.2 GHz or AMD FX-8320 3.5 GHz
  • RAM: 8 GB System Memory
  • GPU RAM: 4 GB Video Memory
  • GPU: GeForce GTX GeForce GTX 980 or Radeon RX 580 4GB
  • HDD: 50GB Available Hard Drive Space
  • API: DirectX 11

We'll begin with the minimum specs for FFXII, which are much more in line with what we'd expect. All you'll need is a modest dual-core processor to get Final Fantasy XII up and running on PC, paired with 4GB RAM and any mid-range graphics card from the last five years with at least 2GB VRAM. These are low-end specs which should ensure Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age can at least run on just about any modern gaming PC. The one tricky thing to look out for is the large 50GB install size, which will mean a lengthy download for some.

There's then an absolutely massive jump up to FFXII's recommended specs. Square Enix has said these requirements are for 1080p resolution, indicating huge scalability in Final Fantasy XII's graphics settings. Considering the age of the game though, even with the higher resolution support, the GeForce GTX 980 is a GPU you'd expect to be able to run FFXII at playable frame rates on 4K. However, 4K screen resolution is not even officially supported so you may experience unexpected results.

The rest of the recommended specs are a bit more reasonable. You'll need an industry standard 8GB RAM for FFXII, paired with a pretty modest quad-core processor.
