Final Fantasy VII Remake will have new bosses, new environments and more

The first chapter of the game will take place in Midgar. The development team put a considerable amount of time and effort into creating a rich depiction of Midgar which, in turn, prompted them to reimagine some of the characters that live there. As a result, the daily lives of familiar faces like Cloud and Tifa are now portrayed in a more in-depth manner.

Speaking of characters, there will also be some new faces in Midgar. As director and concept designer Tetsuya Nomura notes, you’ll encounter some new bosses along the way that’ll add to the excitement of the story.

Square Enix also highlighted another new Summon – Chocobo and Moogle. This “dynamic duo” can deliver a multi-faceted attack consisting of an energy blast and a stampede to trample foes. As the developer notes, “it’s adorable… although probably not for those on the receiving end.”

Final Fantasy VII is also littered with side activities and mini games for when you need a break from the main story. Perhaps you fancy a game of darts in Seventh Heaven? Or maybe a motorcycle chase is more your cup of tea? You’ll be able to experience both – and presumably much more – once the game drops on PlayStation 4 on March 3, 2020.

Those interested in pre-ordering the title can secure the standard version for $59.99 or lock down the Deluxe Edition for $79.99 from the Square Enix Store. There’s also a 1st Class Edition for the serious collector / hardcore fan that commands $329.99.

Ugh ue is cancer.
When you look at a list of games using Unreal Engine, and consider how many of those titles were perfectly decent games, it may seem that a more appropriate statement would be along the lines of:

"Ugh, developers inexperienced with the sheer scale of options, level of control, and so on, in UE4 for PC always seem to try and replicate the same choices made for the closed platforms that are consoles, with the totally open platform that is the PC. This always seems to result in glitches, crashes, and/or poor performance. If only they would moderate their choices better, or maybe the publishers should fund the developers more so that they can hire more staff or more experienced ones."

:)

On topic: I'll be happy to wait for the PC version, just as long as it comes.

Been gaming for decades, literally. Played hundreds of games and have gamed on just about every platform. Played dozens of games built on unreal. Everything from big budget aaa to single person projects. I have NEVER played an unreal game that is at a level of polish technically in terms of performance and stability that ever left me feeling as though it was the best choice.

In other words, my op stands.
