This is how you get Final Fantasy 7 Remake for free

Technically, Square Enix isn't giving away the "complete" edition of FF7 Remake but there's a way to get it without paying the full price.

Square Enix is likely looking to improve up the numbers of FF7 Remake ahead of the launch of FF7 Rebirth.

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is finally coming. After an initial reveal and a release date announcement, Final Fantasy fans now know which date to circle on their calendars so they can prepare themselves for what's going to be yet another 100-hour adventure with Cloud Strife and the rest of the party. But, there's a roughly six-month wait between then and now, which begs the question, what do you do until then?

If you've played Final Fantasy 7 Remake or its next-gen upgrade, Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade, already, your only "other" option is to check out the latest Final Fantasy releases, like, let's say, the ever-scapegoated Final Fantasy 16 or the Final Fantasy Pixel Remasters, which have sold extremely well.

But, if Final Fantasy 16 was your gateway to the Final Fantasy 7 remake trilogy and you're tempted to check out what's the commotion all about, we've got good news for you.

FF7 Remake is easily one of the best JRPGs to come out in recent years.

At present, Final Fantasy 7 Remake costs $29.99 on the PlayStation Store for the PlayStation 4 with a "free" upgrade for the PlayStation 5 edition. If you want to get the InterMISSION DLC, which includes a side-story involving Yuffie, who's a central character to the subseries, you'll have to shell out $39.99 to get both the FF7 Remake and its DLC on the PS5. It isn't the most expensive game on the market; it's just that there's a way to get this without paying extra.

If you head over to the PlayStation Store right now, you can get the Final Fantasy VII REMAKE & REBIRTH Twin Pack - can we call it the "Twin Pack" from here on out? - for $69.99.

For that price, you'll get both games and the InterMISSION DLC for FF7 Remake, which technically means you didn't pay anything to get the first game in the trilogy.

The Twin Pack will only be available until the launch of FF7 Rebirth.

Just make sure that you buy the bundle that has the word "Twin Pack" in it. Otherwise, you might end up paying the same for just FF7 Rebirth.

If you're willing to pay a bit more, the Digital Deluxe Edition of the Twin Pack only costs $89.99 and comes with a couple of freebies.

Of course, neither of these hold a candle to the 19 inches of Sephiroth that you're getting for the FF7 Rebirth Collector's Edition for $349.99 but that doesn't come with FF7 Remake either, at least, based on what's listed on the official website.
In any case, if the latest trailers for the FF7 Rebirth have you pumped up and you're looking to get into the FF7 Remake trilogy, the Twin Pack is your best bet to get the most out of your money.

Hopefully, Square Enix will offer a similar trio bundle ahead of the release of the third game in the remake trilogy.

As a bonus, Square Enix has a couple of incentives for those who will play FF7 Rebirth with existing FF7 Remake saves. Your progress may not carry over from the first game, but having Ramuh and Leviathan as Summon Materia as a reward for being a fan of the series isn't half-bad. 

Square Enix's financial troubles were recently highlighted by a report. With its upcoming slate filled with sure-fire hits like FF7 Rebirth, Kingdom Hearts 4, the final game in the FF7 Remake trilogy, two DLCs and the PC port of FF16, as well as the rumored remakes of Final Fantasy 9, Final Fantasy X, and Final Fantasy Tactics, this isn't expected to continue.

Fingers crossed, Square Enix doesn't go too all-in on its AAA binge and gives us the occasional indie-like JRPG.
