One 12 months and eight months after its PlayStation 4 release, Final Fantasy 7 Remake lastly made it to PC, accessible on the Epic Games Store and solely the Epic Games Store from December 16. Have a look within the sport files, nonetheless, and you will discover a Steamworks subdirectory beneath Engine/Binaries/ThirdParty. Hop a couple of folders additional down and there’s additionally a steam_api64.dll file. It appears probably, as with so many video games earlier than it, that Final Fantasy 7 Remake will stay unique to the Epic Games Store for the same old 6-12 months earlier than being accessible elsewhere.
Backing this up additional, a look inside the WindowsEngine.ini file shows a reference to a SeamDevAppID. Here that ID is within the unofficial SteamDB, the place the workers have already labeled it Final Fantasy 7 Remake.
Another motive you may wish to maintain off is that Final Fantasy 7 Remake’s PC port is a main disappointment, missing primary choices like a Vsync toggle or anti-aliasing settings. Some gamers are reporting points with stuttering too. Running across the slums space I see framerates momentarily drop by 30 fps, even with a GTX 3080 and different specs effectively above the Final Fantasy 7 Remake system necessities.
It’s a disgrace, as a result of I’m having fun with it to this point. I did not play the unique till I used to be an grownup, nonetheless, so I haven’t got any of the nostalgia that made Fraser not too long ago declare that Final Fantasy 7 Remake took a dump on his childhood.
