Final Fantasy VII Remake to Run on Unreal Engine 4

With the release of a new trailer for Final Fantasy VII at the PlayStation Experience we got to see gameplay from the game which revealed some changes that some fans aren’t happy about. Changing the style of play turn-based is one of the more contentious aspects that appears to have changed.

Another issue was the fact that it will now be an episodic release, at least they have a reason for this move. perhaps one of the changes that will cause the least issues for fans of the Final Fantasy games will be the fact that the game will be using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4.

Siloconera are reporting that the game will be using Epic’s engine, and that the company are working with Square Enix to make sure that it looks the best it can. Looking at the trailer, the graphics quality definitely stands out and make an impression on the audience. This will be the engine that is used to create Kingdom Hearts 2.8, and Kingdom Hearts 3 too.

While some changes to Final Fantasy VII may not be ones that fans want to see, there can be no argument that the Unreal Engine will bring out the best of the game which is being brought onto the PlayStation 4. Using this engine also means that the game can make the move to Xbox One and PC too if this is a direction Square Enix want to take it in.
