- Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is highly anticipated and won the award for most highly anticipated game at The Game Awards 2023.
- The game will have a fast-travel system that is near-instant, thanks to the PS5’s SSD.
- Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will feature a much larger world than its predecessor, with multiple towns and points of interest to discover.
The upcoming Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth recently shared a video showing off its fast-travel system, which happens almost instantly thanks to the PS5’s SSD. Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is easily one of 2024’s most highly-anticipated games, even winning the award for such at The Game Awards 2023.
Whereas Final Fantasy 7 Remake kept the focus mainly on Midgar, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is blowing things wide open, giving players the chance to explore a much larger area with multiple towns and points of interest to discover. Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is set to be much larger than its predecessor, and that means players will need some ways to get around fast. Chocobos will be one way Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth can speed up their travels, but fast-travel will also be an option.
What to Expect From Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth in 2024
The highly anticipated Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is scheduled for release in 2024, and it looks to be packed full of exciting content for fans to enjoy.
Fast-travel is a common feature in many games the size of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, but it’s especially impressive in the new game because it’s near-instant. In a video recently shared by the official Final Fantasy 7 Twitter account, fans can see Cloud and his friends exploring some wilderness. The player then opens their map and drags their cursor north, showing off just how huge FF7 Rebirth‘s world will be. They eventually find a town they want to travel to, select it, and then arrive with minimal loading.
The PS5’s super-fast load times have been used to great effect in other games as well. Something similar was done with Spider-Man 2‘s fast-travel system, which allows players to go from one point on the map to another with virtually no downtime. It seems that this will be a common theme for PS5 exclusives with huge worlds and fast-travel.
Of course, Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is taking advantage of the PS5’s horsepower in more ways beyond its super-quick fast-travel times. While Final Fantasy 7 Remake already looked incredibly impressive, FF7 Rebirth‘s graphics are taking things to the next level. Recent videos and screenshots show the jaw-dropping level of detail that is going into Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth‘s characters and game world. Time will tell if the final product looks as good as previews, but it’s a safe bet that FF7 Rebirth is going to be one of the best-looking games of the year when it comes out.
Luckily, the wait for Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is nearly at an end. The FF7 Rebirth release date is right around the corner, with Final Fantasy fans able to start their adventures on February 29.
