During Square Enix’s FFVII 25th Anniversary broadcast today, Square gave us an in-depth look at Ever Crisis along with a planned closed beta release for 2022. Given that we’re mid-year, that narrows things down obviously heading towards a six month window, although how close we are talking remains to be seen.
The trailer seen above features a collection of flashy Ever Crisis remake-style combat sequences interspersed with cutscenes and locations that will be instantly familiar to anyone who played the 1997 classic FFVII. Character models have been vastly improved and backgrounds have been recreated while retaining the angles and edges fans know and love.
Ever Crisis is being touted as a free-to-play retelling of FFVII, Crisis Core, Before Crisis, Advent Children, and Dirge of Cerberus – in other words, the entire Compilation of Final Fantasy VII series. In the trailer, characters regularly appear in outfits that don’t match the original game’s scene. It’s a safe bet that such departures will feed into the optional monetization system.
