PC gamers who plan to play Final Fantasy 16 should consider an SSD a “must have.”
This is according to MMO producer/director Naoki Yoshida Famitsu that although the team will try to improve the game as much as possible, “using a hard drive is going to be a pain.”
“Details will be announced in due course. However, I would like you to prepare an SSD,” Yoshida said when asked what kind of specs the PC version would require (thanks, PCGN).
“Even if we did our best to tune the GPU, in FF16 – a game where loading speed is crucial – using the hard drive would be a pain.
“Of course, we will do our best to improve as much as possible, but we cannot overcome the hardware barrier alone, so please keep in mind that an SSD is a must. We will announce the exact recommended specifications on another occasion,” Yoshida added. “.
The first piece of Final Fantasy 16 DLC, Echoes of the Fallen, is out now.
Game director Naoki Yoshida announced in September that paid DLC was being developed (after initially stating that the game was a “one-off”, then later hinting that he was “thinking about” options).
Echoes of the Fallen is the first part of two downloadable content (DLC) expansions. It will be followed by The Rising Tide in spring 2024, which will include the Eikon Leviathan as players expected, as well as the terrifying-looking Tonberry King.
