Final Fantasy 15 Screenshot Comparison Shows Impressive Graphics Evolution

Final Fantasy 15 Versus 13.

Final Fantasy 15

Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 15 is one the most anticipated games of the decade. Previously known as Final Fantasy Versus XIII, the game has seen its share of development challenges. The game was re-introduced as Final Fantasy 15 at E3 2013 but since then the developers have hardly revealed any information about the game.

As a retrospective, we take a look at how the graphics in the game has evolved in the last few years. The comparison, drafted by Neogaf user Bazztek, pits screenshots from the PS3 gameplay trailer released in 2011 and the E3 2013 trailer which was running on the PC. The comparison, as expected shows an impressive upgrade in graphics and lighting effects. However the animations have largely remain the same.

It’s important to note that the E3 2013 demo was using Yebis engine for optical effects and its use in the final retail version is uncertain. Final Fantasy 15 currently has no release date, however it is expected that the game will release in 2015 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. What are your thoughts on this comparison? Let us know in the comments section below.

The screen on the top is from E3 2013 trailer and one from the below is from 2011’s gameplay trailer.

    “Running on PC.” Downgrade confirmed. Not that it matters. The game will probably get delayed and delayed and come out for the PS5… if we are lucky.

    E3 2013 trailer which was running on the PC.

    most pointless comparison that I have ever seen. Those screens aren’t even of enough resolution to appreciate anything.

      That’s ridiculous.

    They simply mean that the PS4 version will not look as good as the gameplay shown on the PC this is what happened with a lot of games shown of at e3 2013 with Watch Dogs being the biggest and most controversial example.
    The PS4 and X1 are simply not as powerful as developers thought they would be, sadly this all comes down to Sony and Microsoft going with a crappy APU used in cheap laptops and high end tablets. Everything else is more than powerful enough it still boggles me why they would cheap out on one of the most important parts.

    Either way I am still getting this game and even if it might not look as good as what was shown at e3 we can be sure it will still look amazing, it is a Final Fantasy game after all.

      watch dogs was downgraded because of ps3 and 360. it was hit by parity because ubisoft wanted it cross gen. now look at the new batman thats going to be on PS4 and not going to be on 360 or ps3.
