The PC version of Final Fantasy 7 Ever Crisis is coming soon and details on the game including its system requirements have been officially confirmed.

Square Enix published Final Fantasy 7 Ever Crisis on September 7 for Android and iOS mobile devices. The game is another spin-off of the enduring PlayStation classic Final Fantasy 7 which plans to release new episodes each month that highlight unexplored facets of the game’s backstory. Details on the PC release have been vague, but details have begun to come out.

The game now has an official page on Steam. In addition to hinting at the game’s release date, it also gives exact system requirements for the game. With free-to-play status and low system requirements, the game could be worth checking out as fans await Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth.

What is Final Fantasy 7 Ever Crisis?

Final Fantasy 7 Ever Crisis is a free-to-play spin-off of Final Fantasy 7. It is divided up into “episodes” that cover specific stories and moments of Final Fantasy 7 and its other spin-off titles. Some of these stories are full-blown retreads of the established canon, while others show a moment through the eyes of new characters.

Final Fantasy 7 Ever Crisis is monetized through gacha pulls that unlock weapons and items for in-game characters. Response to this has been mixed, with some voicing frustration over the game having microtransactions while others say that its gacha mechanics aren’t exploitative. The game has received mixed reviews with strong praise for its graphics and ability to deliver a decent FF7 experience, and criticism directed at its combat system and over-reliance on established canon.

Final Fantasy 7 Ever Crisis PC release date info

Final Fantasy 7 Ever Crisis is coming out “soon” according to its official Steam store page. There is no official way to play the title natively on PC. There haven’t been any announcements regarding whether the game will come to the Epic Games Store or other DRMs.

Just like its mobile counterpart, the PC version of Final Fantasy 7 Ever Crisis will not be available to download and play in the Southeast Asian region. Though players have found workarounds to this, Square Enix continues to keep the game out of some of the biggest regions for mobile gaming. It is unknown when or if the game will be made available in more territories.

Final Fantasy 7 Ever Crisis PC system requirements

Square Enix has revealed both the minimum and recommended system requirements for FF7 Ever Crisis. As expected from a mobile game, they’re on the low side. Here’s the full breakdown:

Minimum SpecsRecommended Specs

Graphics: AMD Radeon Vega 8 Graphics, Intel UHD Graphics 630, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750Graphics: AMD Radeon RX 460, Intel Arc A380, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950

Unlike Final Fantasy 7 Remake and presumably the upcoming Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, this has rather tame system requirements that most modern computers should have no problem meeting. Its story also extends past the party leaving Midgar, so players who want a taste of the remake trilogy may want to give this a look.
