A benchmarking tool will be available on PC from February 1 which should help players determine if their machine is capable of running Final Fantasy 15 without any issues.

Final Fantasy 15 has received a significant number of updates since its initial release in November 2016. Square Enix has reworked major sections of the game following fan complaints while also refining the general experience.

Players who already own all of Final Fantasy 15’s previously released DLC can purchase the Royal Edition content digitally at an additional cost. Coming in at $19.99 in North America, a UK price is yet to be confirmed.
