Final Fantasy VII Remake's recent launch on PC has allowed countless new players to jump back into the world of the famed title. This remake focuses on the Midgar arc and is divided into several chapters. On average, it will run as long as other games from the Final Fantasy franchise.
In the game, the player takes on the role of the iconic mercenary Cloud Strife in the dystopic setting of the fictional city of Midgar. Cloud accepts a mercenary job at Avalanche, an eco-terrorist organization, in an attempt to put a stop to the Shinra Electric Power Company's use of the planet's life essence as an energy source.
