Tonight, Square Enix did a bit of an information dump on something that a lot of JRPG fans have been looking forward to for the past few years, the next numbered title in the Final Fantasy series, Final Fantasy XV.  Based on the original design for the highly anticipated but never released title Final Fantasy Versus XIII, Final Fantasy XV is being built from the ground up to take advantage of the powerful next generation consoles.

I’m sure there are a lot of people out there wondering just what this game’s engine is capable of.  Here’s a look at the technology behind the game.

Anyone else having Alan Wake flashbacks?  The terrain technology they’re using looks to be very similar to Remedy’s technology for Alan Wake.  Those tools were built from the ground up to be for an open world game, and from the looks of it, that’s exactly what the Final Fantasy XV engine will be capable of.

If a simple tech demo isn’t enough for you don’t worry, I have more.  Here is a ten minute walkthrough of the gameplay.  There’s not really much action in the video, but it does give a good look at the world the players will be exploring set to a beautiful score.  I don’t know if anyone heard it, but there was a distinct set of notes from a classic Final Fantasy theme at the very end of the video.

It looks like this game will allow you to have four character adventure parties during quests.  I always thought that three person groups were the typical party size in modern JPRGs (Chrono Trigger or Final Fantasy XIII for example), but I know Final Fantasy games in the past have allowed it.

Square Enix cannot stress enough that this content is subject to change in the final version of the game.

Final Fantasy XV is coming to the Xbox One and Playstation 4.
