The Final Fantasy 7 Remake isn't the only game from the epic series getting a native PS5 release this year. New information has just confirmed that another Final Fantasy title is getting a PS5 release this year.
LATEST - Final Fantasy 14 Is Coming To PS5
Final Fantasy 14 Online's 5.5 Patch is now coinciding with the release of an Open Beta for a PS5 version of the game.
What makes this all-the-more better is that you can actually use your current FF14O character, confirming cross-generational progression.
Final Fantasy 14 Online is going to have Haptic Feedback support, 3D Audio support, "ultra-high" loading speeds and improved framerates on top of support for 4K visuals.
Looks like this could be a good way to pass the time before the Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade.
25 February Update - Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade Announced
Here's a quick topline view of the new features Square Enix just revealed for this next-gen upgrade to the game released in 2020:
- Performance/Graphics mode
- improved loading times
- Classic difficulty modes
- Photo Mode
- New Yuffie episode (available for purchase)
- PS4 owners of FF7 Remake can get free upgrade to the PS5 version.
Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade is released June 10th later this year.
Original Story - Is a PS5 update for the Final Fantasy 7 Remake on the way?
Square Enix's Final Fantasy 7 Remake is an updated version of, perhaps, the best Final Fantasy game ever made.
The iconic Cloud Strife teams up with Tifa, Barrett, and more on a quest to take down the villainous megacorporation Shinra from destroying the planet.
It is a tale of heroics and an action-packed adventure everyone should play. Here's everything we know about the Final Fantasy 7 Remake and its arrival on the PS5.
State of Play Announcement?
If rumours are to be believed, we should expect to see the Final Fantasy 7 Remake during tonight's State of Play presentation.
An update titled "Ever Crisis" is apparently in the works and would be a Definitive Edition of the existing game.
There have been rumours of more Final Fantasy 7 Remake content for a while now, although the Orchestral performance earlier in the month proved to be fruitless.
The notably-accurate leaker Jeff Grubb has also been seen reinforcing the claims that Final Fantasy 7 Remake will appear:
PS Plus March 2021?
With March 2021's PS Plus announcement delayed, everyone is assuming that this is due to the State of Play Presentation.
It doesn't seem like PlayStation would miss their regularly-scheduled PS Plus announcement, as it happens on the same day at the same time every month, however this month they did.

With a State of Play presentation so soon after, this has to be the reason why. Many fans believe that the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, PS5 or not, will be included in the line-up alongside Kena: Bridge of Spirits and an additional third title for PS4 players.
This version of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake would be available on both PS4 and PS5 and it will introduce a few new features to the existing game on top of new chapters.
Although it should be taken with a grain of salt, a Reddit post from u/MXHombre123 has revealed the following:
- Performance Mode which targets 60fps with 1440p render resolution and 4K output or Graphics Mode at 30fps with ray tracing at 1440p render resolution and 4K output (PlayStation®5 exclusive)
- Full DualSense support (PlayStation®5 exclusive)
- Two brand new chapters: Chapter 8.5 "All Dressed Up" and a mysterious Chapter 19
- A new boss battle, various new arena battles and a Boss Select Mode
- Materia Quick Change
- Photo Mode
- New set of trophies
With the improved technology of a PS5 at their disposal, the additional graphics modes seem believable.
In addition to this, PS5 games have a separate trophy set to PS4 games even if they are the same title. This and a Photo Mode all seem to add believability to this leak.
