This week is a big week for PlayStation 5. Starting today, you can return to Midgar and reunite with Yuffie Kisaragi in the enhanced Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, which offers new episodes and other meaningful additions. A day later, the spotlight for the new release will move to Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart at Insomniac Games.
Visitors to Midgar again will find the background textured, lighting and details improved and should be otherwise eye-catching. You can experience these scenes in graphic mode, which offers 4K resolution and 30 frames per second, or in performance mode, which allows you to play more smoothly at 60 frames per second at 1080p. No matter which mode you play, you can focus on the details in the new photo mode.
Even if you’re already playing the game, you can see lots of new things in the strangely named EPISODE INTER mission. The story unfolds through the eyes of Yuffie, one of the original party members of FINAL FANTASY VII on PlayStation 1.
Their journey introduces new summons and they confront a variety of different enemies. Some of them have never been seen before. Gameplay has been enhanced with the DualSense controller, which can be expected to significantly reduce load times as you move between areas.
If you have already purchased Final Fantasy VII Remake on your PlayStation 4, you can download the PlayStation 5 upgrade for free. This includes the above visual enhancements. You can then download EPISODE INTERmission alone.
Let us know what you think about Integrade in the chat below. Is this the first time you have set foot or revisited Midgar? If you’re already playing a remake, do you want to play it again or jump to new content?
