Mobile title Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis is coming to Steam
Square Enix has announced that Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis will be ported to Steam shortly.
- Square announced during a recent livestream that Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis will be released on PC as a free-to-play title with microtransactions. Data will be shared between the recently released mobile version and the upcoming PC port, allowing players to access and play both versions of the game using the same account. The developer has not yet announced a release date for the port.
- Ever Crisis, which debuted on mobile earlier this month, is a reimagining of the story of FF7, including the original title and its spin-offs. The game has a mission-based structure with battle mechanics similar to the original FF7's ATB system and retells its narrative in a cute chibi style.
- Despite being free to play, the game is packed with microtransactions, with frequent pop-ups advertising its premium currency, items such as weapons and cosmetics with varying rarity levels, reward passes, and daily log-in bonuses. Although the game is far from pay-to-win in its current state, fans have criticized Square for its aggressive push to force players to use its gacha system and other real-world money purchases.

- Due to ongoing DDoS attacks, Destiny 2 players have been unable to play the shooter without experiencing network issues for the past week. Bungie confirmed the attacks early last week, with various in-game issues such as broken AI, inaccessible locations, and frequent disconnects persisting.
- Payday 3 developer Starbreeze has apologized for the game's disastrous launch over the weekend, claiming that the server issues were caused by an error in a third-party matchmaking service. Fans are refusing to accept the apology and are instead demanding that the studio include a true offline mode in the game.
