The good news for those who have been waiting for Final Fantasy VII Remake to come to PC is that your wait is nearly over! After a year and a half of waiting, Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade will launch on the PC come December 16, 2021. This release will include the graphically-enhanced and expanded version of Final Fantasy VII Remake along with the Yuffie-focused content, Episode INTERmission.

The bad news is that this will be sold exclusively through the Epic Games Store on PC. Square Enix, Epic Games Store, and timed exclusives. Name a more iconic trio.

There is no word on if this is a permanent exclusive or not. I doubt it is, but you never know. Right now, there is no word on if or when it will be released on PC storefronts that didn't take three years to add a shopping cart. There's also no word about any sort of an Xbox release. For all we know, Square Enix will milk this exclusivity train for as long as they can. It's already been a year and a half, what's another 6 months, a year, maybe two years...

In FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE INTERGRADE on PC, players will follow the story of ex-SOLDIER operative turned mercenary Cloud Strife, who descends on the mako-powered city of Midgar as he lends his aid to an underground resistance group calling themselves Avalanche in their fight against Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation. FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE INTERGRADE also includes an exhilarating new story arc, FF7R EPISODE INTERmission, which brings ninja Yuffie Kisaragi to the forefront as she infiltrates the city of Midgar during the events of the base game.

With improved textures, lighting, background environments, a fully customizable “Photo Mode,” and more, FINAL FANTASY VII INTERGRADE for PC also features 4K support, HDR support, XInput and DirectInput compliant controller support, keyboard and mouse support, plus the highest spec PCs could see a performance of up to 120 frames per second.
