Final Fantasy VII Upgrade PS5

PS Plus subscribers who were able to claim Final Fantasy VII Remake last year as a free game will now be able to upgrade to the PS5 version of the game. Along with it, players looking to buy Episode Intermission, a DLC featuring Yuffe Kisaragi, will be able to purchase the DLC at a 25% discount.

Final Fantasy VII Remake was one of the most talked-about games of 2020 and was easily one of the best games available on the PS4. The PS5 version of the game comes with a bunch of new features, including a Photo Mode, enhanced visuals, and support for the Dualsense’s haptic feedback and adaptive triggers.

Final Fantasy VII Remake was available as a free PS Plus title last year. Much like many other PS5 games, players will be able to switch between ‘Graphics’ and ‘Performance’ mode to opt for either better resolution or target 60 FPS.

Final Fantasy VII Remake was one of the most well-received games of last year and was in the running for several Game of the Year Awards. The game follows the adventures of mercenary Cloud Strife and AVALANCHE as they try and stop an evil megacorp from using the planet’s life essence as an energy source.

The game combines elements of real-time combat with strategy, giving it an extremely unique feel. The ‘Remake’ isn’t a shot-for-shot remake of the original but alters many key plot points in drastic ways and even expands on the original in a lot of ways.

I possess the dexterity of a toddler when it comes to fighting games, but the confidence of a hundred Jay-Z's. Absolutely love narrative-driven games - with a particular obsession with indie side scrollers and retrowave scores. Currently playing: Disco Elysium for probably 5th time in the last 6 months.
