This Thursday, June 10, it will go on sale Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, the optimized version of the PlayStation 5 game that we already received on PS4 a year ago. It will have numerous technical improvements that go beyond the increase in resolution and frames per second of rigor, since they have been improved character facial models and textures (including the famous door that caused so many taunts a year ago).
The Twitter account PlayStation Game Size has shared the download size of Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, an exclusive version of PS5, which will weigh a little less than the original PS4, despite its higher resolution textures. Will occupy 81.3 GB on PS5, compared to 85.9 that FF VII Remake weighed on PS4. Of course, it is a patch from day one, and in its version of the United States (there may be some differences in Europe, but they should not be more than 2 or 3 gigs: the Asian versions occupy 77 GB).

But although its size is smaller in principle than that of PS4 (without patches), in practice it will not be, if you want to play the new exclusive PS5 chapter, INTERmission, starring Yuffie. INTERmission will occupy 8.9 GB, and it will be an additional download that will have to be added to the size of the standard game, as has also been confirmed PlayStation Size.
INTERmission will be free for everyone who buys the PS5 version, but if you buy it in physical format, the episode will come with an extra download code in the box.
If you already had FF VII Remake on PS4, you can upgrade to the PS5 Intergrade version for free, but beware, the Yuffie episode is not included, and it will be a DLC of payment of about 19.99 euros. In addition, the versions of FF VII Remake that came with PS Plus two months ago will not be able to be updated in any way to the PS5.
In addition to Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade, this week PS5 users will be able to play Ratchet & Clank A Dimension Apart, which will occupy a more manageable 33.61 GB, although it is still higher than what Ratchet & Clank occupied on PS4, of about 26 GB. Of course, we are sure they will be worth it …
