Square Enix announced that PlayStation Plus subscribers will finally be allowed to upgrade to the PS5 version of Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
With a critically acclaimed remake Final Fantasy 7 Finally making its way to non-PlayStation platforms, Square Enix is also offering PlayStation Plus subscribers on PS5 enhancements they were denied months ago. Existing owners will have an incentive to return as well as sell additional content.
Final Fantasy 7 remake is the first installment of a planned spin-off series reimagining the story of Final Fantasy 7 to match a different gameplay formula. Original Final Fantasy 7 critically acclaimed as a classic JRPG, and the remake’s critical reception was overwhelmingly positive during its initial release.
Square Enix announced today that players who own Final Fantasy 7 remake through the subscription service PlayStation Plus will be allowed upgrade to PS5 version starting Wednesday, December 22. The PS5 version features significantly improved graphics and Photo Mode that allows players to see the improvements up close. Also, the highlight is the new difficulty setting and by the standards of PS5 upgrades, the load times are much better than the PS4 version. The Episode Intermission DLC will also have a 25% discount, adding story content featuring Yuffie fan favorite characters.
Back in February, Square Enix was criticized for limit Final Fantasy 7 remakePS Plus version of from the PS5 upgrade. Sudden announcement allowing an upgrade at the same time as the recent launch Final Fantasy 7 remakeThe PC version of the game implies that it may actually involve exclusivity, perhaps the technicality of Final Fantasy 7 remake was a PS4 exclusive for the first year. However, this theory has not been confirmed by Square Enix or Sony, so unless there is official confirmation, the reason for the decision is just speculation.
With the recent release on Epic Games Store hints at the future on Steam, it looks like Square Enix has no plans to stop bringing Final Fantasy 7 remake to more storefronts, giving more non-PlayStation players the chance to experience the reimagined story. With how little is known about Season 2 so far and the big commitment to prolonging the already long film Final Fantasy 7 into several remakes, it’s possible that exclusivity deals mean cross-platform releases will be frustratingly delayed. The first game being released on PS4 for the first time makes PlayStation 5 a safe bet for Season 2’s first platformer, but it remains to be seen if plans change.
Final Fantasy 7 remake praised for its graphics on PS5, but unfortunately the PC release suffers from major performance issues – possibly since it’s a debug build. If the game is ported to Xbox Series X or Nintendo Switch, players on those platforms can only hope it doesn’t run into the same problems at launch. However, given its rigorous technical requirements, a Switch port is highly unlikely. Regardless, PS Plus owners who own a PS5 have good reason to be excited.
