Lightning And Co. On Their Way To PC As Square Enix Brings Final Fantasy XIII Series To Steam


After much speculation, Square Enix has confirmed that the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy — including Final Fantasy XIII, Final Fantasy XIII-2 and Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII — will arrive on PC by spring, 2015.

As one would expect, Final Fantasy XIII is the first to make the jump to the platform, with the first chapter in the series arriving on October 9th. Priced at $16 (£10.99), users can explore the vast regions of Gran Pulse as Lightning, with the company also promising Steam Card support, too.

Steam isn’t the only digital marketplace that the trilogy will be available on, however, with Square stating that the PC release can be purchased through the official store and other services. Mind you, if you pre-order the first chapter in Lightning’s saga through Valve’s own distribution system, you’ll be entitled to a 10% discount.

Ultimately, not much was revealed in terms of the title’s PC-specific features, although given the tactical Paradigm battle system, it’s expected that the franchise will have controller support upon release.

With Tokyo Game Show 2014 in procession, today’s news wasn’t the only tidbit pertaining to the Fabula Nova Crystallis sub series — the collective name for a number of Final Fantasy titles based on a similar mythos — with a stunning new look at Final Fantasy XV making its way online just yesterday.

Final Fantasy XIII makes it debut on PC on October 9th, 2014, with the second and third instalments expected to reach the platform before the end of Spring 2015.
