UPDATE: Square Enix has now officially confirmed the release date for Final Fantasy XIII-2 which, as expected, will arrive on Steam come December 11th, 2014. It will also feature custom resolutions and run at 60fps.
According to a now-concealed trailer for Final Fantasy XIII-2, Square Enix is planning to bring the RPG sequel to Steam on December 11th, 2014.
The video, which has now been switched to private (we’re guessing someone pressed ‘publish’ a little too soon), detailed the improvements the company has made to the soon-to-be-released port — one which contains “a host of new features and enhancements.”
The arrival of Lightning and Co. on PC was first announced back at TGS in September, where the esteemed Japanese publisher confirmed that the full Final Fantasy XIII series was headed to the platform replete with revamped graphics and never-before-seen features.
The first chapter, simply titled Final Fantasy XIII, launched on Valve’s digital marketplace back in October when it was met with a degree of disappointment. That’s because Square Enix had imposed a resolution lock on the title and despite PC platforms being renown for enhancing the visual image to the Nth degree, the port only had the most basic graphical options. Here’s hoping the follow-up learns from that mistake.
It’s understood the third and final entry in the sub-series, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, will arrive on the platform before the end of spring, 2015, but for now, fans of the franchise can look forward to the time-hopping sophomore outing when Final Fantasy XIII-2 arrives for Steam users on December 11th, 2014.
