Final Fantasy 7 Remake was one of the most highly anticipated games of all time, having first been teased back at E3 2005.
The game was finally released in April 2020, but it is only part 1 of the game, with an unconfirmed amount of future parts finishing off the retelling of the 1997 smash-hit game.
So with that in mind, how far can you level up your character?
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Level Cap
Since Final Fantasy 7 Remake is just part 1 of an epic adventure, and the fact your character progress will carry over to future parts, Square-Enix has imposed a level cap on players.
The current level cap is 50, meaning players who want to be the best they can be, can get to level 50 in anticipation for Part 2, whenever that will be.
During a regular playthrough you can expect to end the game at between level 30-40, so still not quite at the max level.
The best way to hit level 50 is to replay the game on hard mode, which will unlock after completion of the game.
Hard mode grants double XP and triple AP after every battle.
Speaking of AP, even after reaching level 50 you can continue to level up weapons and Materia, just not the levels of the characters.
FF7R PS5 Port
During the recent State of Play event, it was announced that Final Fantasy 7 Remake will be getting a next-gen port with improved visuals and frame rate.
There will also be a new chapter released that focuses on Yuffie.
This next-gen port will be released in June and PS4 players can upgrade to the PS5 version for free.
However, players that own FF7R through PS Plus won't be able to upgrade to free.
About Final Fantasy 7 Remake
The world has fallen under the control of the Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation controlling the planet’s very life force as mako energy.
In the sprawling city of Midgar, an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche have stepped up their resistance. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to the group, unaware of the epic consequences that await him.
The story of this first, standalone game in the FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE project covers up to the party’s escape from Midgar, and goes deeper into the events occurring in Midgar than the original FINAL FANTASY VII.
