ICYMI: Square Enix at The Game Awards


Square Enix
The 2021 iteration of The Game Awards, the awards show for games that is kind of... I guess an awards show for games that also kind of wants to be E3-light, happened last evening. My assumption is that the "E3-light" part is really the more interesting for folks, though, and in that regard Square Enix did show up with a couple nice treats.

The biggest and most immediate news we already suspected: a release of Final Fantasy VII Remake for PC. That was confirmed last night, and not only that, it was confirmed for next week and also confirmed to include Intergrade. Unlike the PlayStation 5 release that pretty much nobody has gotten to play because nobody has a PS5, this one will not be able to be upgraded from a previous PS4 purchase. That said, the PC version will still play at up to 4k with a good enough rig, and the specs to play at 1080 seem quite reasonable aside from perhaps the 100GB space requirement! The game will be available on the Epic Games Store only, at least for now.

Forspoken, the game long known as Project Athia, also got a new trailer last night and, I believe, the first specific announced release date: May 24, 2022. The game will be released only for PlayStation 5 and Windows. The new trailer is below for your enjoyment.


On top of that, if you are interested in the awards themselves, Square Enix as a developer and publisher won five. Two were for Final Fantasy XIV, and one each for Life Is Strange: True Colors, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Nier: Replicant.

AltheaValara Ah, you beat me to posting this. smile.gif Probably good that you did, as I hadn't heard about the FFVIIR PC release.

I'm really glad that FFXIV won its nominations! It deserves it, it's a fantastic game and it is clear the devs really care about it.

I was looking in Discord for someone to post it while I went to get my COVID booster this morning but nobody took the bait so I did it when I got back. smile.gif

Glenn Magus Harvey Looks like I'm just 4 days behind you on the booster. biggrin.gif

Also I've been so hilariously ignorant of recent releases. It was only during Steam's silly game awards nominations event that I realized that NieR Replicant was a thing.
