Antialiasing: SMAA & FXAA

Frames per second: 60fps, with 30 fps option available.

DRM: Denuvo.

Yes, the game will indeed have DRM. Bandai Namco had this to say about this feature:

"We love the community: it is you guys that ensure that we continually bring more Tales games out, and to a high caliber. It wouldn’t be fair to you if we didn’t put any systems in place to prevent people who try to acquire the game through illegitimate means as it eventually will slow us down bringing games onto PC. Denuvo has been proven to be a reliable way to fight piracy. So far, no conclusive evidence is proven to disrupt the player experience."

In addition, the demo for the PC version of Tales or Berseria is now available on Steam starting today (January 10, 2017). The PlayStation 4 version demo is also now available via the PlayStation Network.

    I've been refreshing the Steam page for the demo every hour or so with no luck yet.
    Lol I can't wait 😛

    Here I'm hoping a lot of us get the PC version so that Namco continues to support this platform.

      Namco is scared to put most of their games to PC because of Piracy. They already even began on using Denuvo, and it seems that they're confident. With that, I hope that they'll make another PC ports like Vesperia, Graces and Xillia.

    I played the demo on PS4. It was a bit too short. It did run mostly at 60FPS but occasionally it droped to I guess 40 FPSish. The few skits were fun. Battle system is a bit like Zestiria. It may overwhelm beginners. Lots of tutorials and tips to read. English voice of the normin with the hat is annoying.
