While it’s unknown if this port is based on the one released by Eidos in 1998, it is stated that the new release will be optimized for current PC hardware, and will feature several additions. First is the addition of 36 achievements, which can be shared with friends. Also included is a “Character Booster,” which allows players to increase their HP, MP, and Gil amounts to their maximum levels. Finally, Square Enix is allowing the use of cloud saves, meaning that players can pick up where they left off no matter what computer they’re using, provided they have an internet connection.
Also revealed were the minimum requirements to run the re-release, which can be seen below:
- Windows XP / Windows Vista / Windows 7 operating system, 32- or 64-bit
- A 2GHz or faster processor
- At least 1 gigabyte of RAM
- A DirectX 9-compatible graphic card
The new PC version of Final Fantasy VII will be released soon exclusively through the Square Enix Store.
