Square Enix announced the global launch of Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier. Players interested in the game can now download it from your local app or play store.
Set in the world of Midgar, 30 years before the events of Final Fantasy VII, The First Soldier is a battle royale game in which players can compete against other SOLDIERS to achieve the rank of SOLDIER: 1st class.
The first map available for the game will take place in Midgar Undercity, which is home to all of the known locations including Sector 7 Undercity, Corneos Mansion and a specific house in the countryside. If you’ve played Final Fantasy VII Remake, you’ll find that these locations are very similar.
There are a few mechanics in the game that are different from other Battle Royale games. First, we have the “Combat Style” system, which is more like a “job class” system. Each fighting style will have its own unique ability tailored to different play styles.
Next, there are monsters roaming the map where you will be rewarded with items and levels if you manage to defeat them. You can even find bosses or summon materia in-game!
Remember, however, that this is a battle royale game, so defeating other players is your top priority. Don’t let this loot be your next restart button!
