Now, the company has provided a list of these options, which are intended for "high-end" PCs. Take a look at the list below, which Square Enix sent to GameSpot and is also featured on the game's Steam page.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII PC Graphics Options:

  • Rendering resolution
  • Scaling of the display area
  • Shadow processing
  • Texture filters
  • Color correction
  • Depth of field
  • Lighting
  • Glare

The PC version of Lighting Returns: Final Fantasy XIII also supports full-screen and windowed display modes, as well as maximum resolution of 1920x1080 (1080p) and a top frame rate of 60 FPS. You can see the game's minimum and recommended PC requirements here.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII comes to PC through Steam on December 10. That's later than expected, as it was originally supposed to be out by spring 2015. There are no changes to the story from the console version, which was originally released in North America for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in February 2014. The PC package also comes with (almost) of the DLC release on console.

When Lightning Returns launches on PC next month, the complete Final Fantasy XIII trilogy will be available for computers. Final Fantasy XIII was released for PC in October 2014, while XII-2 arrived in December of that year. For more on Lightning Returns, check out GameSpot's review of the console version.
