Final Fantasy 15 on PC will support Xbox One cross-play

The Windows edition of Final Fantasy 15 (opens in new tab) will feature cross-platform co-op with Xbox One players, according to the Microsoft Store listing (opens in new tab) for the game. 

The game's Comrades DLC, which came out on consoles last year and will ship with the PC version, introduced online co-op to the game, with players working together to complete quests. So that's likely where the "Xbox Live cross-platform co-op" will come in (don't expect to run through the campaign with your friends on console or anything like that). 

The Steam version of the game won't have the same functionality, sadly (although it will have the Steam workshop for mods (opens in new tab), which is a bonus). 

The game is due to come out on PC on March 6. As Joe found out last year (opens in new tab), it'll look incredible in 4K if you've got the PC to handle it (opens in new tab) (sadly, I don't), but lower-end rigs will still be able to enjoy it thanks to the accessible minimum specs (opens in new tab).
