That reads to me like it's the whole thing, not just a single episode.

Literally the third line:

The first entry in a multi-part saga, delivering a level of depth inconceivable for the original. Mind-blowing story, unforgettable characters, epic battles and technical excellence collide.


They're charging full price because it's a full game. It's one part of a larger story, but it is still a full game.

:slol: I think I'll wait for the whole thing to be released, tbh.

God knows how long that'll take them.

Summon Materia DLC? :dread:

Just think of how many items and mechanics they could hide behind paywalls on this if they wanted to! :fp:

Yeah that's what I thought. And scary enough, there are more "episodes" to come. Imagine the sheer amount you have to spend to get all of the statue editions. :dread:

The deluxe edition will only have two of three summon material DLCs. :lol:

They sure know how to milk this., I'll give them that.

Also those summon materials wasn't in the original were they?

Carbuncle and Cactuar are in VIII I believe. I think Chocobo Chick is all new?

I'm assuming (dangerously probably!) that the summons from the original game are all present and correct in the base game and they are just adding others like this as a bonus...

Yeah they are additions and not in the original game so I’m fine with that.

Carbuncle could be an interesting addition depending on how other mechanics work in the new game. Reflect was so easily abused in the original game that I can see that being pretty game breaking, especially if you get these "bonus" summons early on.

How can it be episodic across generations though?

Will you just start from scratch in FFVII-2 on PS5 with none of your levelled up characters? Won’t that mess up a big part of the games RPG elements?

"Generations" are basically a dead concept now - the PS5 is just a better PS4, all your games and accounts and cloud saves etc. will just see it as another place you play.

I thought this looked absolutely amazing, definitely my personal highlight of E3 so far. Iwas a little unsure on the battles beforehand but the demonstration looked great. I can understand the logic behind them splitting into parts and Midgar itself being one part, it's going to be a huge game. My only worry is how many parts they are going to make and how long it will take them. They'll surely make at least 2 more parts which could easily take them another decade. Still, I'll look forward to this one and go from there, really can't wait to play it after all this time :D

aheh

The real big problem with this being cross-gen is that there's going to be a fidelity difference between entries. It's an "imperfect" package, untill they remaster the remake for next gen. What's coming out next year isn't going to be something you'll be replaying in 5 years, because it's going to be the worst version of the remake ever released.
