Last week we announced that Final Fantasy XIII-2 is coming to PC on December 11, 2014 with a whole host of enhancements and features specifically for the PC version. Well today, I bring some more good news! I can confirm which pieces of DLC from the console version of Final Fantasy XIII-2 will be included in the upcoming PC/Steam release - and you can see what all that is in the handy list below!

 

Coliseum Battles

  • Omega (from Final Fantasy V)- Gilgamesh (from Final Fantasy V)- Ultros & Typhon (from Final Fantasy VI)- PuPu (from Final Fantasy VIII)- Lightning & Lieutenant Amodar (from Final Fantasy XIII)- PSICOM officer Jihl Nabaat (from Final Fantasy XIII) Outfits for Serah
  • Summoner’s Garb- Beachwear- White Mage Outfits for Noel
  • Battle Attire- Spacetime Guardian- Black Mage Outfits for Mog
  • A Wondrous Wardrobe Scenarios/Story DLC
  • Sazh: Heads or Tails?- Lightning: Requiem of the Goddess- Snow: Perpetual Battlefield  

It’s a nice big list right? That’s all the major DLC bundled together including 'Lightning: Requiem of the Goddess,' which in my opinion is the best and most important bit of DLC, so that’s a great bonus! All of the content listed above will come with the PC version of Final Fantasy XIII-2 at no extra cost. We managed to get the vast majority of the console DLC bundled together in the PC version but sadly we weren’t able to get all of the original console DLC in there due to licensing and contractual restrictions. That means that the other console DLC content will not be released with the original Windows PC release of Final Fantasy XIII-2, or later on as separate update content.

In case you missed it the first time round there’s also more great news! Final Fantasy XIII-2 also comes with a load of other PC-specific features thanks to fan feedback such as:

  • 60 FPS support from launch- Customisable rendering resolution (720p, 1080p and more!)- Japanese (and English) voice support with subtitles And the last bit of good news is that the PC version of Final Fantasy XIII will also be getting an update in December to allow similar customisable rendering resolution options to Final Fantasy XIII-2.

Hooray!

So that’s a nice bit of news to share with you guys looking forward to the rest of the Final Fantasy XIII saga. I know it’s taken a little while to get the resolution issue fixed with Final Fantasy XIII but doing that is all down to your feedback. We do listen and try to fix things for you guys where we can so thank you for your continued support.

Final Fantasy XIII-2 on PC is coming out on December 11 and will cost £12.99/€15.99. If you pre-order it via the links below you can also get a nice 10% off.

Pre-order Final Fantasy XIII-2 via the Square Enix Store

Hopefully I’ll see you at the Historia Crux!

That's great and all, but when are they going to fix the Android games? No gamepad support, not working on KitKat or above (looking at you, Chaos Rings series).

One goof that I always noticed in XIII-2 is that Serah's Female Cat is referred to as 'she' many times in the beginning but when Serah goes to leave New Bodhum with Noel, she picks up the cat and says "Someone gave 'him' a good brushing." I know it's small but it really bugs me haha. PS: Hope the patch for XIII is out this week :)

Hi Dan,Do you know if the patch is going to be released this week or next week with XIII-2's Steam launch? Thanks in advance

I'm afraid it's really unlikely that a hard mode will be added in I'm afraid. It would take too long to add it and balance it, etc and with the game coming out pretty soon I don't think there's enough time. Who knows, it may get added afterwards but I don't know what the chances of that happening really are.

Another quick question Dan, Is there any chance of them adding a Hard Mode for XIII-2? The Coliseum battles were great but I felt the main quest was a little too easy on Normal Mode. Lightning Returns had some Epic challenge!

For some reason I can't see a "quote" button here. I just wanted to say thanks very much for the info about the render resolutions. I appreciate the effort.

Ok, I'm not sure if it goes up to 4K but I've been told that the resolution is scalable and includes higher resolutions than 1080p. It's not just stuck to 720p and 1080p but I'm not sure how high it goes but it's not just an aspect ratio thing.

I understand that SE is trying to make it across the PC universe but I would like to see a console version of the game including the DLC too.I personally haven't bought the game yet due to the fact that there isn't a console version of it including all of the DLC!!!Show some respect to the console gamers that have been supporting you through all these years!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's a good question, let me clarify that and get back to you.

haha well your wallet is safe for now as we have nothing to announce for PS4 at the moment. Thanks for the warm welcome back :) I've been informed that The Art of Eorzea art book should be gracing the SE Store very soon (hopefully) so keep an eye out for it and it should hopefully appear.

I'm not aware of the exact specifics of the update but my understanding is that it should optimize the framerate along with give resolution options. If problems still persist afterwards though, do let us know and we'll see if we can address it. Glad you're looking forward to XII-2 and Lightning Returns :D

Yeah unfortunately that's one of the outfits that's hit by the licensing and contractual restrictions :(

Please don't die. It would be difficult to work if that happened! Keep an eye out for any job vacancies though and good luck! I'll do my best to keep the good news rolling!

Actually, while we're talking, port it down to Vita. Maybe then I'll be able to Platinum it ;)

Please Square Enix, hire someone to remake the textures, some of them look horrible on PC! Also, we want 120Hz support.

Important question regarding render resolutions: "Customisable rendering resolution (720p, 1080p and more!)" Is "and more" referring to other aspect ratios within the same range (such as 1680x1050, 16:10), or higher resolutions like 4K? I would appreciate an answer.

Too bad for serah's outfit style and steel ! =( Will Serah & Noel's weapons (Azrael, Seraphic Wing, Genji Bow, Muramasa & Catastrophe Blade) will be in the game ?

Nice, nice indeed. Now be really mean to my wallet and announce it for PS4 as well :POh and welcome back buddy, I hope your trip was great :D Btw Dan, sorry for being offtopic but I was wondering about the Art of Eorzea.. Haven't seen it grace the store yet. The SE store that is. Located in Sweden if that perhaps locked me out? :(

Thankyou Dan, I look forward to play XIII-2 and most of all Lightning Returns! My main concern with XIII on PC however is the framerate. I really hope the December update helps to optimize it, My PC and card are well over the recommended specs but I get extreme framerate drops and stuttering. I have held off on playing anymore for now in the hope that the December update will make it a lot more playable for me. Thanks again though for listening to fan feedback, the XIII story is fantastic.

I don't see Serah's best outfit... or best in my opinion... Serah's Style and Steel.

Sorry buddy, I'm afraid I don't know anything about cloud saving on FF-IV at the moment

Loved XIII-2 on PS3. Hey Dan, any idea when cloud saving is coming to the iOS & Android versions of Final Fantasy IV? I've been waiting since June and now III, V and VI all have it but not IV. :(
