Final Fantasy VII Rebirth promises a substantial gameplay experience, with developers indicating that the volume of side content nearly doubles that of the main quest.

From swimming to riding Chocobos and utilizing various vehicles like buggies and segways, the game offers diverse means of traversal. Additionally, a revamped crafting system allows players to collect raw materials and craft new items, armors, and accessories.

Combat remains familiar yet refined, offering both Active and Classic battle modes. New to Rebirth is the addition of synergy attacks, encouraging strategic coordination between characters for devastating combos.
