Two months from now, Final Fantasy VII Remake will celebrate its first full year since release. Also, that also marks the expiration of the game’s exclusivity to the PlayStation 4. Following the game’s delay, Sony Interactive Entertainment alongside Square Enix adjusted the agreement with an extension starting on April instead of the initially promised date.
Looking elsewhere, there is suggestions that the game will be arriving to PC already. In that, Square Enix presented footage of the game running on PC in a ‘Thank You’ recorded video following the game’s reception and performance at launch. As of yet, there is still no details on Final Fantasy VII Remake coming to other systems.
Well, at least outside of PlayStation that is. Closing out Thursday’s PlayStation State of Play presentation, Square Enix announced a PlayStation 5 version of the game with Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade. You can watch the detailed trailer in the video below:
The announcement, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, is two sides of the same coin, Square Enix shares. Part of that, players can find a new playable episode arriving to the game later this June which features Yuffie Kisaragi as a playable character. At the same time, the PlayStation 5 update will include upgrades for the newest console.
“The expressiveness of the game’s lighting, texture, and environment has increased with the PS5 version of the game. New features have also been added, including the ability to switch between ‘Graphics Mode’ that prioritizes high quality 4K graphics (4K compatible display required) and ‘Performance Mode’ that prioritizes smooth action at 60FPS.”
