A new update for Final Fantasy VII Remake is available now. Released ahead of the PlayStation 5 version of the game, Patch 1.02 allows players to transfer their saves from the PlayStation 4 version. Other than that, nothing new appears to have been added.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade is essentially an upgraded version of the remake for PlayStation 5. As such, it features several visual enhancements, optimized loading times, and DualSense controller support.
- Immerse yourself in the city of Midgar like never before, with improved textures, lighting, and background environments
- Players can switch between two game modes:
- “Graphics Mode” prioritises 4K high-resolution graphics
- “Performance Mode” prioritizes smooth action at 60 frames per second
- Capture and share your memorable moments from the game with a fully customisable “Photo Mode”
- Players can enjoy immersive battles by using the DualSense PlayStation 5 controller with its haptic feedback integration
Intergrade also contains an exclusive new episode featuring Yuffie Kisaragi, the young ninja from Wutai, as the main character.
Titled FF7R EPISODE INTERmission, the new story content sees Yuffie “as she infiltrates Midgar and conspires with Avalanche HQ to steal the ultimate materia from the Shinra Electric Power Company.”
Fans who own the PlayStation 4 version of Final Fantasy VII Remake and wish to play it on the PlayStation 5 can download a free PS5 enhancement update. However, there are some caveats. Of course, the enhancement update does not include the new story content, which must be purchased separately. Moreover, if you own a physical version of the game and the all-digital PlayStation 5, you are not eligible for the enhancement.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade launches June 10 for PlayStation 5.
