Square Enix has announced a new battle royale for their legendary franchise called Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier for iOS and Android.
The new game will be set in Midgar, decades before the setting of the main story. In fact, the game will subtly play on the story of how Shinra amassed their army with the SOLDIER project, the “experimental corps of enhanced fighters.”
Like most battle royales, people will hunt for loot consisting of weapons and abilities, move around a huge map consisting of different landscapes, and team up with other players to be the last in the game.
There’s going to be a ton of hype for the FFVII: The First Soldier release, so read on below for everything including a launch window and a glimpse of the first teaser.
Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier release date
There isn’t a concrete release date for Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier, but the battle royale is set for a worldwide launch sometime in 2021.
Everyone with an iOS or Android device will be able to download the game for free and jump into this new look for Midgar.
