Square Enix’s Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier, a free-to-play battle royale title set 30 years before the events of the main series, is out on November 17th. It will be available for iOS and Android, offering a unique Final Fantasy twist on the formula. Check out the opening movie below, which indicates the origins (?) of the S.O.L.D.I.E.R. program.
Story aside (because it’s throwaway as Dirge of Cerberus), Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier sees up to 75 players competing with one emerging as the victor. The twist is that along with guns, players can also utilize magic, melee weapons and summons like Ifrit to fight for them. Monsters also adorn the field and can be defeated to earn EXP and Gil.
This allows for leveling up one’s skills and increasing HP along with purchasing items and upgrading equipment. Multiple Styles (the title’s take on the Job system) also offers a variety of ways to play, whether it’s the Warrior’s front-line melee combat, the Sorcerer’s magic focus or the stealth of the Ninja. Pre-registration is currently live with rewards like a Chocobo Egg, Shinra Mask Skin, Shinra Bike Skin and more on offer depending on the number of players.
