Eidos made Tomb Raider. Square Enix had originally announced that FFXV could run on any DirectX 11 capable hardware. They later said that they would consider reworking the interface and controls for a PC release, given their was enough demand. The later then stated the game would require a high end machine.
Eidos did make it, however Eidos Interactive was acquired by Square Enix and now placed as a subsidiary of SE Europe before the announcement of the game, therefore making SE the forefront of TR's development. (Thanks Wikipedia!)
So, it requires DX11, huh? Well, my desktop obviously won't work as it is only DX9 compatible, but the HTPC should work it just fine. How does this spec sheet do?
- Intel Xeon 1230 @ 3.3GHz
- 16GB of RAM
- nVidia GeForce GTX 600 Ti Boost
It handles Crysis and TR just fine, plus the low screen resolution of the display (1280x720 is readable, anywhere higher is too scrunched up) should be able to get me about 60-70fps in either game. Plus, I run it with default settings, so yeah, I guess FFXV should be no problem for this computer.
