The "Final Fantasy" 15 release date is a highly anticipated title release, the latest iteration of the long-running action role-playing gaming franchise from Square Enix. It is only logical of course, a game won't reach a fifteenth version without somehow creating a sizable chunk of loyal gamers along the way.

But what can players expect from the latest installment? Judging by the host of details already known, gamers will definitely experience an exciting gameplay when "Final Fantasy" 15 release date arrives later this year.

For instance, one of the most exciting part of the upcoming "Final Fantasy" 15 gameplay comes from the structure of the game itself. It was revealed that the latest installment of the Final Fantasy franchise will combine both open world and linear story-driven game dynamics, reports Kotaku.

This unique game structure was revealed by "Final Fantasy" 15 director Hajime Tabata. Explaining about the game progression, Tabata explained that "The open world continues throughout the first half, and because of the story, the second half progresses linearly."

In terms of game time, Tabata revealed that it would probably take between 40 to 50 hours to finish the game. The game progression is designed in such a way that players won't get bored and tired playing the open world component. The linear phase would assure that the "Final Fantasy" 15 gameplay gets more focused towards the end of the game.

As far as graphics is concerned, players can expect a reasonably crisp and smooth visual output when "Final Fantasy" 15 release date arrives later this year. For PlayStation4, the output is between 900p and 1080p running at close to 30 FPS, according to DualShockers. For the Xbox One console, Final Fantasy XV displays between 765p and 900p and also runs close to 30 FPS.

For now, devs are still busy optimising and stabilizing the game's frame rate. A lot of things could still improve before the "Final Fantasy" 15 release date this coming November 29, 2016.
