Square Enix have announced the release date of mobile battle royale Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier

With the upcoming free-to-play mobile game Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier, the Final Fantasy series will get a dose of battle royale action. The game will premiere internationally for iOS and Android via the App Store and Google Play on November 17, according to Square Enix's newest update, and a new video has arrived to showcase the opening cinematic. And Pre-registration is available now.


The game, as previously reported, is a mobile battle royale game set 30 years before the events of Final Fantasy VII, with players serving as SOLDIER hopefuls. The new trailer depicts Initiative 0's beginnings, as well as the beginnings of the SOLDIER project.


Fight in up to 75-player bouts in an action game that combines RPG and battle royale aspects. Choose a battle type, such as Warrior or Sorcerer, and eliminate your opponents using whatever means at your disposal, including pistol, sword, and magic.


To earn experience points and gil, defeat enemies, summon fan-favorite summons like Ifrit to fight for you, and catch a chocobo to dash and glide over the battlefield.


Square Enix outlines the features:
  • Fight Using a Combination of Melee, Magic, and Firearms – Use all the options at your disposal to overwhelm your enemies in highly varied and strategic combat.
  • Level Up and Upgrade Your Arsenal During Battle – Fight monsters on the battlefield to gain experience points, power up your skills, and raise your max HP. Use gil you pick up to upgrade your equipment and purchase items.
  • Choose from Varied Styles, Each with Different Strengths – Will you be a Warrior and take the fight to the enemy with powerful melee attacks? Or do you prefer the ability to cast augmented spells as a Sorcerer? Perhaps sneaking in and out of combat as a Ninja is more suited to you? Choose from these styles and more before every battle to determine your playstyle!
  • Visit and Play in Iconic Locations from Final Fantasy VII – Seventh Heaven, Corneo’s mansion, the train graveyard, and even a familiar house surrounded by flowers are just some of the iconic locations you can visit in each expansive map.
  • Fully Customize Your Character – Choose a look that fits your unique personality with a huge variety of costumes, emotes, and more.
