Final Fantasy XV has received a PC demo today. Unlike the benchmark earlier, this demo will feature the entire first chapter of the game which is actually a pretty substantial part of the main game as it contains a large section of the open world. This demo was also available for PS4 and Xbox One but the PC version can be also used to benchmark hardware to determine if it possible to run the game on your PC.
The download method for the demo can be seen below while it will require around 20 GB of hard disk space. Final Fantasy XV also utilizes some of the Nvidia GameWorks features so if you are playing it on Nvidia card, you might get better performance with the effects enabled including HairWorks.
If the link doesn’t work for Steam, you can attempt to get through it by putting it directly in the Run command in Windows.
