Final Fantasy XV: Windows Edition is on the way next month, but in the meantime, players can pick up another acclaimed installment of the series on PC. Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age, the remastered version of the classic PS2 title, is now available on Steam, and early adopters will be able to purchase at a discount for a limited time.
Like the PS4 version, Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age typical runs for $50 on Steam, but those who purchase it from now until February 8 will get it for $40. In addition to that, everyone who downloads the title within that time frame will receive three additional audio tracks, as well as an exclusive wallpaper created by the original game's artist, Isamu Kamikokuryo. You can purchase the game here.
Final Fantasy XII first released on PS2 back in 2006, while The Zodiac Age launched for PS4 in July 2017. It features a number of graphical and gameplay improvements over the original version, including higher resolution visuals, an overhauled job system, a reorchestrated soundtrack, and the ability to increase the game's speed.
On top of those, the PC version of The Zodiac Age also boasts some of its own features that have been tailored for the platform. The game runs at 60 FPS and is compatible with 21:9 ultra-wide monitors. Players can also access the New Game Plus and New Game Minus modes right from the start, and Square Enix has added "new functionality to grant players max License Points and Gil from the configuration screen."
GameSpot voted Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age one of the best reissued games of 2017. Critic Miguel Concepcion called the title "an ideal definitive edition" in GameSpot's Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age review and said, "Its epic, lore-abundant story and its time-tested Gambit System should also appeal to those who missed out on the mainline series' trip to Ivalice the first time around."
