Final Fantasy VII Remake Will Use Unreal Engine 4 and Will Release in Episodes December 7, 2015Posted by Maniac in Game News.
I think that headline pretty much sums up this news. This weekend, there was no bigger reveal at this year’s PlayStation Experience than the newest trailer for Final Fantasy VII Remake. And now, we have two other major announcements to make about it.
Yesterday, Square Enix announced that, to guarantee the highest quality final product, Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released as a series of episodes. While a lot of people online have cried foul about this announcement, this does mean that we could end up getting sections of the game released earlier than expected. Even Square Enix admitted the game was so big there was no way they could have it completely remade using modern graphics until at least 2017. I’m willing to give Square the benefit of the doubt here, they did very well this year with the episodic release of Life is Strange.
Today, Epic Games officially announced that Final Fantasy VII Remake will be powered by Unreal Engine 4, an incredibly powerful cross-platform engine designed for Xbox One, PS4 and high-end PCs. This is a big announcement as this engine powers some of the best looking games of the generation, while maintaining a stable frame rate on the latest console platforms.
