New FF7 Remake Update Prepares Save Transfers For Intergrade
The latest update for Final Fantasy 7 Remake also confirmed that Trophies will transfer over to Intergrade.
Ahead of Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade's launch on PS5 next week, Square Enix has released an update for FFVII Remake that will let players transfer their save data. The update also includes a bit of good news for PlayStation Trophy hunters, who will find their Trophies transferred over to Intergrade as well.
Patch 1.02 allows you to open the PS4 version of the game and upload your save so that it can be downloaded and used within the PS5 game. (We've seen a similar process with cross-gen games like Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 and Marvel's Avengers.) A free DLC package will hit alongside Intergrade on June 10 and provide five accessories, and the Chocobo Chick, Cactuar, and Carbuncle Summoning Materia. If you owned these on PS4 and upgrade to the PS5 version of the game for free, you'll need to download this DLC pack in order to use the items.
Today we’ve launched patch 1.02 for @FinalFantasy VII Remake to allow you to upload the PS4 version of your save file in preparation for the launch of FFVII Remake Intergrade on PS5.— FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE (@finalfantasyvii) June 3, 2021

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade will include all the next-gen improvements one could ask for. The game will have a higher frame rate, faster loading times, improved textures, higher resolution options, DualSense support, and a new difficulty setting. However, the main feature that sets Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade apart from its last-gen version is the inclusion of "Episode Intermission," a DLC that adds a Yuffie Kisaragi-centered side-story.
While players will be able to keep their save data and Trophies between Final Fantasy VII Remake and Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, not everyone will be able to update to the PS5 game for free. If you own a copy of the PS4 version of the game, you can upgrade and get all the next-gen features at no cost. However, if you got the game when it was free for PlayStation Plus users, you will not be able to upgrade for free.
If you're upgrading, you'll also have to buy the Episode Intermission DLC separately for $20. If you don't have a copy of Final Fantasy VII Remake yet and want to get it on the PS5, we have an entire preorder guide set up detailing the game's various versions.
