Jesse Woo
Series of FF XV Videos Explain Game's Advanced Tech
Lets get technical.

Square Enix at the Siggraph 2016 conference on computer graphics and interactive techniques held two lectures to explain the technical prowess behind Final Fantasy XV. The talks themselves are probably not very accessible to the average gamer without a background in computer animation, but nonetheless demonstrate a great deal of game's world in over a dozen videos. So settle in and get read for some pretty (though sometimes low resolution) pictures.
