This is the best any 'Final Fantasy' game has ever looked

“Final Fantasy” is one of the longest-running video game series of all time, with roots dating back to 1987.

The next entry in the fantasy role-playing franchise, “Final Fantasy XV” — you read that right, fifteen  —  is due out later this fall. From what we’ve seen so far, it looks like one of the most visually stunning games we’ve ever seen. If nothing else, it’s the most gorgeous any “Final Fantasy” game has ever been.

'Final Fantasy XV' takes place in Eos, a beautiful world that mixes elements of sci-fi and fantasy.

You play as Noctis, the prince of the Kingdom of Lucis.

Noctis spends a lot time driving around with his buddies, going on adventures through the gorgeous world of Eos.

Since travel is such an important part of the game, publisher Square Enix released a video showcasing the gorgeous environments of 'Final Fantasy XV.'

Like this stunning countryside, which looks unnervingly realistic:

Or this enchanting but ominous cavern:

And this private, secluded beach, which at first glance looks like a shot from a nature documentary:

As you travel through Eos, the weather and light dynamically change over time.

Meaning that it operates sort of like reality.

As you can see in this mountain landscape at dawn:

But just a few moments later, the sky changes in tone with the sunrise.

And detail starts to become visible in the distant mountains:

Even dusty, rural areas look picture perfect in 'Final Fantasy XV.'

You'll be able to explore more urban areas, too, like this beachside city.

Even though these environments are empty for the sake of the trailer, they look remarkably realistic.

Like they were built with bricks and pavement, rather than on computers.

Some cities look familiar, like this one which evokes the look of Venice.

Or this interior shot of an apartment, which looks like it was taken out of an IKEA catalogue.

But other areas skew much more into the world of fantasy, like this structure built into a dramatic crystal cliffside.

Or this intricately designed city that looks familiar, yet fantastical.

The game's dynamic weather and light systems apply to urban areas, too.

As night falls, street lights pop on and the city takes on a totally different appearance.

We can't wait to explore the beautiful-yet-imposing landscapes of 'Final Fantasy XV.'

'Final Fantasy XV' will be available on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 30.
