Final Fantasy 15 Will Run In Checkerboard 4K On Xbox One X

Square Enix talks about the game’s visual upgrades.

The Xbox One X is almost here, just a couple months away from launch now, and when it launches, we’re going to be able to see a great deal of games receive significant visual upgrades. One of these games will be Final Fantasy XV, but just what kind of visual upgrades it will receive for the Xbox One X was not yet known. The game’s director, Hajime Tabata, however, has now confirmed just that.

In a conversation with DualShockers during PAX East, Tabata was asked if the game would run in native 4K on the One X, though he confirmed that that wouldn’t be the case. Tabata confirmed that unlike the PC version of the game, the game would run natively at a resolution of 3072 x 1728 pixels, or 1800p, which is 3K, and then through checkerboarding, it would be upscaled to a 4K resolution.

When asked about the differences between the Xbox One X version of the game and the Windows Edition for PC, Tabata confirmed that the latter would use Nvidia Gameworks tech, as well as physics simulation that is part of the Luminous Engine already. Support for spatial sound tech Windows Sonic will also be included, which automatically includes support for Dolby Atmos.

This is a bit strange given that this is the same setting that the PS4 Pro version of Final Fantasy 15 employs. Thoughts? Let us know in the comments below.

      japs helping japanise consoles LOL poor protato bastards !

    Some loser will no doubt complain this is not native 4k on the One X. Even though it’s native 1800p and the Pro checkerboard up to 1800p. Also that is not at all stable and the game is only stable in 1080p on the Pro.

    • nojustno

      It’s not 1800p. Native 1800p is 3200x1800p. This game renders below that on Xbox One X

    • Fweds

      The Xbox1X will be the best console version as with all multi format titles and that is all that matters.

    • nojustno

      Irrelevant. The most important thing of a console are the games, not graphics. PlayStation, by far, has the better games. Any game Xbox has, you can purchase on PlayStation or for a PC (which will run the game better than Xbox One X ever will if you have the right hardware)

    • zcar_driver

      Why would it be Irrelevant? Graphics do matter. For the last few years that’s all I heard. What has changed?
      PS4 has more games ok better maybe, but I don’t like single player 3rd person games. I mostly play online. I don’t want to play against people with a mouse and keyboard, So a pc is out.

    • nojustno

      Graphics are nowhere near the most important part of a game.

    • zcar_driver

      I didn’t say or imply that. I only repeated what others have said.

    • V Sand

      Where did you get these #’s from

    • nojustno

      Did you even read the article?

    • Kiyoshi Richards

      From right above in this very article “Tabata confirmed that unlike the PC version of the game, the game would run NATIVELY at a resolution of 3072 x 1728 pixels, or 1800p, which is 3K, and then through checkerboarding, it would be upscaled to a 4K resolution.”

    “This is a bit strange given that this is the same setting that the PS4 Pro version of Final Fantasy 15 employs. Thoughts?”

    Uh, how about SE does not want to do any extra work or spend extra money? They already have a stable enough build on PS4 Pro at these settings. Could be there are issues at 4K with FFXV on XB1X (requiring additional optimization) or maybe they didn’t even try.

    • Psionicinversion

      Or its simply not powerful enough at the settings they want to use for it

    • Ritsuko Blue

      Just a LAZY PATCH JOB!

  • Mr Xrat

    Dat 1.8TF true beast fire power is really coming to the fore now.

    • Xbox One X unlocked

      Professionally unlocked, Mistercteam has proven Microsoft is playing weak again to help Sony sales.

      We have agreed on 6.8TFlop

    • nojustno

      Please just shut up

    • Holeybartender

      It’s the individual game developer’s decision to do this,not Sony’s Give it up,Sony obviously doesn’t need Microsoft help in any sales department as Sony is clearly whooping it’s a** in sales. XB1X will never sale 30 million units and the 30 million current Xbox users will never trade-in all their consoles,especially for a $500 price point.

    • nojustno

      $500 isn’t overly expensive for a console. The problem is Xbox One X has no exclusives.

    • Holeybartender

      $500 was too expensive to consumers for the original Xbox One,why wouldn’t it be for them now? Atleast with the exclusion of the Kinect it lowered the price but you can’t say that for the XB1X. No,the XB1X will not sell as well as Xbox One did much less make-up the difference of owners between the PS4 and Xbox. The most people will get by trade-for is $80 for the original Xbox One and that’s not much.

    • Gunnar Burling

      While PlayerUnknownsBattlegrounds is not exclusive (PC too), I’m eagerly awaiting playing it on my 55 inch. It’s coming out at launch on X1X and that’s why I’m getting the new console. No word on PUB for PS4 yet.

  • Xbox One X unlocked

    It’s a great way to help Sony recover by agreeing to some checkerboard games.
    No reason to unlock all our power yet.

    • Mark

      Yep. No need to show our aces yet

    • Holeybartender

      You have no aces,the developers hold all the cards.

    • Mark

      Lmao. Xbox One X Unlocked is a troll account…he lays bait around to trigger people, and sometimes I can’t help but to assist him. Lol. He got his name from reading MisterX Media’s site about Xbox “secret sauce”… Hilarious

    • Holeybartender

      Lmao. And I take pleasure in proving people wrong with fact so we all get something out of it.

      Besides,since when is speaking the truth being triggered? Atleast with me being”Triggered” means uncontrollable,unknowledgable ranting and raving when being confronted with an undeniable truth or because I took your rattle away.

    • Holeybartender

      Oh please.It’s Square Enix and every other game developer’s decision to do this,not Sony’s. Even Sony’s Pro is restricted from using it’s power advantage just like XB1X will be,there will never be console exclusive games for these system.Get used to it.

  • Mark

    Noooooooo

  • Ritsuko Blue

    Looks like. Square-Enix is doing a LAZY patch job! Just like Namco with TEKKEN 7! It’s getting a 4K checkerboard too.!

  • Holeybartender

    You should run an article about what the power advantage would be like for games if Sony and Microsoft lifted their ban on Pro/XB1X exclusive games.
