Square Enix mobile game Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis is getting a closed beta next month.
Following the release of a trailer during Summer Game Fest, it was announced that pre-registration for the beta begins today.
According to the game’s official website, players will be able to pre-register for the closed beta until June 28.
The beta will then take place between July 6 and July 13.
Unfortunately for iPhone users, the beta will only be available on Android 8.0 and above, and will only be avaialble to players in the US and Canada.
However, when the final game is released, it will be available on both Android and iOS devices.
Initially announced back in 2021, Final Fantasy VII: Ever Crisis is a mobile retelling of the events from Final Fantasy VII and its spin-offs Advent Children, Before Crisis, Crisis Core and Dirge of Cerberus.
Although the game will be free-to-play, it will have loot boxes containing weapons and outfits.
Square Enix also announced during Summer Game Fest that Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will release in early 2024, and will come on two discs.
In a Final Fantasy 16 preview published last month, we said the game has the potential to be one of the best titles in the series, which launched in 1987 and had shipped over 173 million copies as of March 2022.
“Final Fantasy 16 has the potential to stake a claim as a defining RPG of the early generation,” we wrote. “With production values that are off the charts and music that will knock you off your feet, the game left an incredibly strong impression.”
