Over the years, fans have been eager to remake “Final Fantasy 7”, and in 2020, Square Enix finally got his wish. However, due to the scale of the Cloud Strife adventure, we only got the first part of the story-mainly in the city of Midgar.
We first heard about the remake at the 2015 Sony E3 conference, but few years later there was little information about the development.The remake finally resurfaced during E3 where Square Enix debuted in 2019 Several new trailers And announced the PS4 release date of the FF7 remake.
The remastered version is now available on PS4 and PS5. After nearly two years of waiting, it finally landed on the PC.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake release date
When is the release date of Final Fantasy 7 Remastered PC?

This is a PC trailer.

What does it mean to be divided into parts?
“Final Fantasy 7 Remake” is so much larger than the original that it has two Blu-ray discs on PS4…just for the first episode. When recreating the original game, Square Enix split it into multiple parts. The first part takes place entirely in Midgar, and in the original game, you leave the city after 5-10 hours of playing.
Square Enix has not yet revealed when the second part of the game will be released, but it is already in development. It feels a bit like the trend of movie series ending in two separate movies, but according to producer Kitase Yoshinobu, this is the best.
“If we try to consolidate all of the original content into one remake, we will have to cut all parts and create a condensed version of Final Fantasy 7,” he said. Said in 2015“We know that none of you would want that.”
If we want to envision the best scenario for PC players, then the second part of the remake will be released at the same time as the original PC version in 2021. We will get the complete game through digital download instead of splitting it into multiple part.
But considering the scope of “Final Fantasy 7 Remake”, the trilogy seems more likely. Who knows when we will see later works appear on the console or personal computer. Fingers crossed, after the first episode, PC players also won Final Fantasy 7.
What should I do next time?
For the second part of PS4, PS5 or PC, there is no news yet-more about the “episode” format of the remake below. We do know that the next part of the game is already in development.

Look at the original text Reveal trailer For remake
The first trailer for the 2015 Final Fantasy 7 Remake did not reveal much information beyond the existence of the game. Nevertheless, this is a very moody and sharp trailer. The last few lines: “Because they are back. Finally, the promise has been made” is almost enough to make you get goosebumps, the weird music and the sword on Claude’s back. Square Enix did make a promise.
The story of the remake is slightly different
The Final Fantasy 7 remake is more than just a visual update.In the interview wired, Director Tetsuya Nomura said: “We are not going to turn it into a one-to-one remake, or just the original Final Fantasy 7 with better graphics.”
Nomura went on to clarify that due to the player’s attachment to them, he believes that certain major plot points should not be disturbed. “I want to make it relevant to modern times, with elements of surprise,” he said. “I don’t want to change too much to be unrecognizable, but make sure it’s something new [yet still] Can be identified as FF7. “
What is the battle like in the remake?
we Take a good look at the fight In the “Final Fantasy 7 Remake” during E3 2019. The turn-based battle is officially over. The remastered combat system is closer to the system used in Final Fantasy XV.
When you fight, your “ATB meter” will be filled. When some of your meters are filled, you can use them to trigger a time-slowing tactical mode, so you can launch special attacks or use potions.
You can also switch between party members at will to use their various attacks and spells.
In fact, you can still play the “classic” mode
Square Enix also explained that the combat mode style of the remake is more like a classic turn-based system. It is not a one-to-one game, but instead allows players to select abilities through a menu rather than based on actions.
On twitterSquare Enix explained that the classic mode allows players to leave standard attacks on autopilot. “In standard mode, the ATB meter will fill up by repeatedly attacking your enemies, but in classic mode, this aspect of the game is handled automatically,” it said.
“The player does not need to do anything, the character will fight automatically to charge their ATB meter.” After the meter is charged, it sounds like the player selects abilities and spells from the menu, just like they did in the 1997 game As it did.
