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.

Final Fantasy XV comes out on PS4 and XB1 worldwide on September 30.

As a bonus for those of you who read all the way to the end, here are previews of the Kingsglaive: Final Fantasy XV Blu-ray boxes, both steelbook and standard editions. Kingsglaive comes digitally on August 30 in North America, but physical copies release October 4.
