Final Fantasy 7 Is Now On Xbox Game Pass For Xbox One And PC

Run through the classic JRPG on a platform outside of PlayStation, now available on PC and Xbox One.


The 1997 version of Final Fantasy VII, which was first exclusive to the PlayStation before being ported to a myriad of other consoles, is now available on Xbox Game Pass for Console and PC subscribers.

Anyone who subscribes to Xbox Game Pass--whether it's the console-specific tier, the PC-specific tier (for Windows 10 PCs), or the all-encompassing Ultimate tier--can add the classic JRPG to their backlog. The game can be downloaded from the Microsoft Store.

There are some new features that come with this Xbox Game Pass version, including a 3x speed mode, the ability to turn battle encounters off, and a battle enhancement mode. These extra features, while not exclusive to PC or Xbox One, are added for free.

With it coming to Windows 10 PCs, Microsoft has outlined the PC requirements to achieve the best possible results. You can check them out below to see if your rig can handle Final Fantasy VII.
