What is FF7 Remake?
FF7 Remake (or Final Fantasy 7 Remake) is the first part of a from-the-ground-up reimagining of Final Fantasy 7, the PlayStation JRPG game that propelled the Final Fantasy series to massive stardom in the western world. It tells the story of Cloud Strife and his friends from Avalanche as they perform acts of eco-terrorism and thwart the sinister Shinra Electric Power Company that rules the world of Gaia.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake was first released as PlayStation 4 timed-exclusive all the way back in April 2020. We had actually expected the action-roleplaying game to arrive on other platforms sooner than December 2021, but we suspect the exclusivity was extended when an enhanced port called Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade appeared on the PlayStation 5.
There’s been no word yet on an FF7 Remake release date for Xbox, or any other PC storefronts, but we suspect those releases will eventually follow given enough time.
Are you excited to see Final Fantasy 7 running on PC? We’re eager to see how it runs on the SteamDeck, as we think that could be the best way to play it. Are you sad no Xbox version was announced? Let us know in the comments section below.
