Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition has been in the pre-registration section of the Play Store for some time now. Today, Square Enix the game publisher has decided to make it public. The game is free to download. However, there’s a catch.
After downloading the game you are given the first chapter free to play, but after that, every new chapter will need to be purchased. Additionally, there are many in-app purchases which range from $0.99 to $19.99. If you want to play the full game and won’t be spending on any of the in-app purchases then be ready to shell out at least $9 to get all 10 chapters of the game.
Paid games is nothing new for this publisher, if you a look at some of its other games available in the Play Store currently. However, for most games like Hitman: Sniper, the company asks its customers to pay straight up and then download, but that too has quite a few in-app purchasable items.
The game takes place in the same world as its console variant, but in order to make it mobile friendly, the graphics have been understandably reworked. Additionally, the company has also simplified the gameplay making complex moves doable by a few easy taps here and there.
The company in the requirements area has written that the game is playable on all the devices running Android 5.0 Lollipop and above. But even to play in the lowest resolution, players need at least 2GB of RAM along with 5GB or more internal storage space free. Additionally, the players would also require a CPU clock speed of at least 1.5GHz.
