Steam users have been anxiously awaiting the addition of “Final Fantasy VII” to the PC and it has finally arrived. The popular Square Enix game released today on Steam with achievements, cloud saves, and character boosters.
The Character Booster is feature available in the 2012 re-release of the PC version of the game. The Character Booster feature is designed to improve the party on a save file to give the player the opportunity to experience the game for its story without worrying about the gameplay and having to grind for levels.
“Final Fantasy VII” was originally released in 1997 for the Sony PlayStation, in 1998 for Microsoft Windows-based personal computers and in 2009 on the PlayStation Network. The game is the first in the series to use 3D computer graphics, featuring fully rendered characters on pre-rendered backgrounds, and was the first game in the main series to be released in Europe.
It follows protagonist Cloud Strife, a mercenary who initially joins the eco-terrorist rebel organization AVALANCHE to stop the world-controlling megacorporation Shinra from draining the life of the planet for use as an energy source. As the story progresses, Cloud and his allies become involved in a larger world-threatening conflict, facing off against Sephiroth, the game’s main antagonist.
