FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE INTERGRADE is now available on PC through the Epic Games Store and also Steam!

We’re sure you have a lot of questions about the release, so we’ll do our best to answer them here. Starting with…


The story of FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE follows the story of Cloud Strife - a former SOLDIER turned mercenary. When he agrees to help the underground resistance group Avalanche in their fight against the corrupt and amoral Shinra Electric Power Company, he embarks on an adventure that will change him, and the city of Midgar forever.

The game reimagines the events of the 1997 PlayStation classic up to the team’s departure from the city of Midgar. The original game was a ground-breaking release that changed the gaming landscape with its flexible RPG mechanics, epic story, unforgettable characters and sky-high production values - there’s a reason it regularly features on lists of the best games ever.

FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE captures the unique spirit of that earlier game, but modernizes it with a new battle system, deeper characters, new events and more.

Although it was already a critically acclaimed game (fun fact: the original PS4 release won Best RPG and Best Score and Music in last year’s Game Awards) FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE INTERGRADE takes it even further with graphical improvements, 4K and HDR support, improved framerates (up to 120 FPS in the PC version), a photo mode, additional content and more.

Released in 2021 on PS5, the PC version of the game is now on the Epic Games Store and Steam. Not only that, but it includes all the DLC for the game in one package, including the excellent FF7R EPISODE INTERmission!

What is FF7R EPISODE INTERmission?

Yuffie Kisaragi takes center stage in this additional episode, which takes place concurrently with the main game.

The fan-favorite ninja from Wutai makes her way to Midgar for a uniquely dangerous mission: infiltrate the Shinra Building and steal some powerful materia under development inside.

Of course, things in Midgar are never that straightforward. She’ll have to contend with all kinds of threats and distractions, including helping her Avalanche contacts, Shinra’s army of security forces, and a potentially crippling addiction to the Fort Condor minigame.

OK, that last one might actually be me - but the bite-sized strategy game introduced here is super fun and well worth your time!

With a new playable character, new mechanics including the ability to synergise attacks with a partner, and a story that’s funny, exciting, and emotional in equal measure, it really is a must-play.

It’s included in the PC release as standard, and you can play it any time - we recommend you play it after the main game though.
