Although it has been 14 years since Final Fantasy 8 released to PlayStation, it doesn’t mean people have forgotten about it. Even if some of them did, Square Enix is neither planning to forget about it nor is it going to let the fans forsake it.
Final Fantasy 8 has been released to Steam for PC users for $12. If you look into the details, you will see that the game has not been released with the updated visuals. Yet, three additional things have been added to the game:
Magic Booster: When Magic Booster is used, the player’s inventory of the following spells is increased by 100: Cure, Cura, Curaga, Fire, Fira, Blizzard, Blizzara, Thunder, Thundara, Sleep, Blind, Silence, Berserk, Bio, Esuna, Aero, Confuse, Break, Zombie
Chocobo World: The full game released as a separate application for previous versions. It is possible to play “Chocobo World” directly from the launcher after booting up FFVIII and by fulfilling certain specific conditions in the main game you will also be able to synch data between the two games.
Steam Achievements: 45 total
If you are planning to revisit the game or just play it for the first time, you must know that although the game is playable in offline mode but when you are setting up the game and using Cloud saves, you will require to log in form a Square Enix account.
Oh and it comes with the PC version soundtracks instead of the PlayStation version ones.
