June is a month jam-packed with releases and events related to the videogame industry, with Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade being one of the most anticipated titles of the year.

After a five-year waiting period following the original announcement in 2015, the release of FFVII Remake in 2020 surprisingly exceeded the expectations of millions of fans, who were eager to see the tale of Cloud, Tifa, Aerith, and all their beloved characters retold.

While we'll have to wait a bit more for FFVII Remake Part 2 or whatever it ends up being called, Square Enix shocked fans with the unveiling of FFVII Remake Integrade, an upgraded version of the PS4 release, with shiny bells and whistles to take advantage of the PS5 hardware, as well as exclusive DLC content featuring Yuffie.

If you're interested in trying it out for the first time, or you're a returning player, here's everything you need to know about Final Fantasy VII Remake Integrade.

There have been some misconceptions regarding FFVII Remake Intergrade revolving around its cost, so here's the explanation -- Is the game free? Yes and no.

Essentially, if you own a copy (either physical or digital) of Final Fantasy VII Remake for the PS4 you are entitled to the Intergrade update at no additional cost. If you don't, you'll have to pay for the full game.

Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade will come with a premium PS5 price tag, retailing at $69.99 or the equivalent depending on your region for the standard edition. The deluxe version will cost $89.99.

Here is what you'll be getting with the deluxe edition:

  • The PlayStation5 version of FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE
  • FF7R EPISODE INTERmission
  • FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE INTERGRADE Digital Artbook 
  • FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE INTERGRADE Digital Mini Soundtrack
  • Those who pre-order on PlayStation Store will get the Cacstar weapon, which Yuffie can wield in her story content.

For more info on how to buy, check out Square Enix's official site.

Important side-note: For those of you who own the PS4 version of the game and are looking to get the upgrade for free, this does not include the Yuffie INTERmission DLC. And no, owning the PS+ version of the game doesn't grant you free access to Intergrade.

If you buy any of the Intergrade editions listed above, you'll get this DLC as part of the package, however, if you upgraded for free the price of INTERmission is $19.99 or the equivalent depending on your region, Square confirmed.
