During today’s PlayStation State of Play stream, Square Enix revealed what a lot of people were expecting: a PlayStation 5 version of last year’s Final Fantasy VII Remake.
Entitled Final Fantasy VII Remake: Integrade, this upgraded edition of one of the industry’s most talked about games promises “a wealth of graphical, gameplay and system enhancements.” Furthermore, it will also be free for those who’ve already purchased the PlayStation 4 version, thanks to a planned update.
- Immerse yourself in the city of Midgar like never before, with improved textures, lighting, and background environments. Players can switch between two game modes:
- “Graphics Mode” prioritizes 4K high-resolution graphics
- “Performance Mode” prioritizes smooth action at 60 frames per second
- Capture and share your memorable moments from the game with a fully customizable “Photo Mode”
- Enjoy immersive battles by using the DualSense wireless controller, with its haptic feedback integration, and enjoy dynamic bike racing with its adaptive triggers.
- New difficulty settings for ‘Classic Mode’ provide new ways to play
- Jump into the action faster with optimized loading times
Square Enix has also crafted a brand new episode starring Yuffie as its main character. In this new segment, players will control her as she infiltrates the shadowy Shinra Corporation, in an attempt to steal something from its clutches.
According to the press release, the aforementioned add-on will be available as a separate DLC purchase, but will also be included in Integrade‘s $90 USD Digital Deluxe Edition. That edition of the Remake will also feature a digital ‘mini soundtrack’ and a digital art book, both of which won’t be included in the base ($70) version.
All of the above will come to PlayStation 5, when Final Fantasy VII Remake: Integrade releases on June 10th. Don’t worry, either: You’ll be able to transfer your save data from one version to the other.
