Final Fantasy 7 Remake PlayStation Plus Version Will Finally Get a Free PS5 Upgrade This Week


Those who redeemed Final Fantasy VII Remake on PlayStation Plus back in March 2021 will finally be able to upgrade to the PS5 version of the game at no extra cost on Wednesday, December 22.

Square Enix revealed the news on Twitter while also sharing that Final Fantasy VII Remake's Episode Intermission starring Yuffie Kisaragi will also be 25% off on the same day for a limited time.

When Final Fantasy VII Remake was announced to be joining PlayStation Plus in March 2021, many were surprised and upset to discover that it was only the PS4 version. Furthermore, those who downloaded it would not be able to upgrade to the PS5 version that came with improved textures, fog effects, better lighting, faster load times, a new photo mode, DualSense support, and more.

This also meant that players could not purchase Episode Intermission to play Yuffie's new story as it is not even available for PS4 owners.

In our review of Final Fantasy VII Remake: Intergrade – Episode Intermission, we said that it "serves as a tantalizing tease of Yuffie's inevitable meeting with Final Fantasy 7's core cast, and an excellent reason to return to Midgar to experience her new exhilarating style of combat and entertaining side activities."

This news arrives just after Final Fantasy VII Remake was released on PC. Unfortunately, the port appears to have some major issues, including limited graphics options, stuttering and framerate issues, and more.
