Now Playing: Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade – PS5 Extended and Enhanced Features Video

The Intergrade expansion, which stars Materia-hunter Yuffie in her own dedicated episode, will still need to be purchased separately, but Sony has discounted the price of that DLC by 25% for a limited time.

In case you missed it, the Final Fantasy VII Remake upgrade adds new lighting effects, fog effects, the option to choose between a 4K graphics mode or a 60fps performance mode, and a new photo mode. Final Fantasy VII Remake has also just arrived on PC via the Epic Games Store, with both the base game and Intergrade DLC included. Depending on where you are in the world, the cost might be a bit too high as the Epic Games Store exclusive is priced higher than most new PC releases.

If you have some cash to spare though, here's a look at the PC requirements for Final Fantasy VII Remake. As for December's PS Plus offerings, you can grab Godfall: Challenger Edition on PS4 and PS5, as well as Mortal Shell on PS4. and Lego DC Super Villains also on PS4.
