Confused on Steam Play and Proton? Be sure to check out our guide.

FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE has officially landed on Humble Store and Steam, and the good news is that it works on Linux plus it's Steam Deck Verified. Seems Valve were well aware to get it Deck Verified status right away, looks like we know why Proton 7.0-3 released recently then!

You know the Steam Deck is getting noticed, and clearly important to the gaming industry, when the Final Fantasy VII series Executive Produce at Square Enix mentions it directly in the 25th Anniversary Celebration video that you can see below. I think the importance of moments like that cannot be overstated. The Steam Deck mention is at about 3:40.

Since it's a big one, and one I was hoping to eventually play personally, I decided to dive in and take a quick look. Since it's Steam Deck Verified, every part of it should work well but that does depend on how thorough the verification system is, for such an expansive game.

Here's a fresh video for you (personal purchase from Humble Store):

According to the Steam page this is what's included:

FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE INTERGRADE contains the following content:
- FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE full game
- DLC "FF7R EPISODE INTERmission" (New episode featuring Yuffie Kisaragi)
- Weapon: Cacstar
- Armor: Midgar Bangle
- Armor: Shinra Bangle
- Armor: Corneo Armlet
- Accessory: Superstar Belt
- Accessory: Mako Crystal
- Accessory: Seraphic Earrings
- Summon materia: Carbuncle
- Summon materia: Chocobo Chick
- Summon materia: Cactuar

Available to buy on Humble Store and Steam now. You save a little extra if you're a Humble Choice sub too.

The next game in the series, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, is confirmed for 2024 but will be exclusive to the PS5. Well, for now anyway, eventually it's likely to come to Steam just like other PlayStation games have been. Crisis Core Final Fantasy VII Reunion, a remake of Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 for PSP, is also confirmed to be coming to Steam "this Winter".

Oh and if you missed it, we're even getting Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered on Steam in August. So hopefully Proton will be ready for that too.

I was a hard die fan of FF7 back in the day, and my first FF... even with the crappy port for PC. So, I couldn't resist buying the remake, albeit the high price for it. Almost 3h in, and loving it! Is not a perfect game, and some changes still need to sink in, but the ability to play at 4K with my PC, and in Linux, is a delight. Thanks SE and Valve!

Quoting: mr-victoryAren't the recommended specs a bit high for a remake of a 25 year old game?

It's a complete remake not a remaster. All that's left of original game is a story and characters.

And the story is only nominally the same, there are some very big differences.

Those are the changes I mentioned earlier, they had to sink in for me xD

While definitely being a good game (have beaten it on PS4) and I'd be happy to replay it on my deck, it's just too expensive for a two year old port. The 29% "discount" and the DLC doesn't make this fact any better, it is too expensive. The full price is a joke in my opinion.

Sorry, guys, but I'll wait for it to drop to at least 20 bucks. Have more than enough to play anyway

Quoting: Blender-samaCan someone explain the different FF7 Remake Versions? I didn't follow it closely and I think I read that there will be multiple parts.

Sure:

* Money

That's pretty much it really.

FF7 Remake is an expanded Midgar arc. Intergrade is new content introducing Yuffie earlier than expected. Crisis Core idfk.
