The recent release of the Final Fantasy VII remake – and no not the one running on the Unreal Engine 4, the other old PC port made for the PS4 – has some nifty cheat codes available for gamers to use if they want to speed through the game or skip some segments altogether.
IGN rolled out a list of some cheats for Final Fantasy VII, the re-release of the old game from the PSX and PC era from the late 1990s. There are three distinct codes available for gamers to utilize that will help them overcome just about any obstacle they face throughout their journeys in Midgar.
The first cheat is one to help avoid random encounters. By pressing the L3 and R3 buttons and holding them down an icon will appear that indicates that you can no longer enter random battle encounters. This is a neat way to blast past any segment where you might get drawn into a battle when you don't really feel like fighting. So long as the buttons are held down during map areas where random battle encounters are active, the icon will indicate that the battles will not take place.
Most Final Fantasy games have the random battle encounters as a staple of the series, and are oftentimes used as a way for players to train or grind up their characters to get stronger. If you feel you're already strong enough or just don't feel like fighting enemies in a certain area, this is a great cheat to use to get out of those situations.
Another cheat is to be able to make the game run at triple the speed. This is a cheat that is activated by simply pressing down on the L3 button on the DualShock 4 controller. An icon will appear on the screen indicating that the game is running three times faster than usual. This also affects the game's cut-scenes. This is a great feature for those of you who want to power-level through an area but don't want to spend hours grinding on the same monsters, another staple feature of the a href=http://www.cinemablend.com/games/Final-Fantasy-7-PS4-Trophies-Arrive-Launch-Could-Very-Soon-102227.html>Final Fantasy franchise and many other classic JRPGs. Pressing down on the L3 button again on the DualShock 4 controller will deactivate the cheat.
If you find yourself in a situation where your life is low and you need to refill the health and limit break meters, you can simply press down on the R3 button on the right analog stick on the DualShock 4 PlayStation 4 controller to refill both your health and your limit break. This is a great cheat where you're grinding in an area where the baddies may be too difficult for you or in a situation where you may have run out of potions and you just don't feel like buying more. This is a great time saver and money saver.
These cheats aren't difficult to pull off at all and are more-so made for convenience sake. Gamers who may not have time like they used to can simply cheat their way through the re-release of Final Fantasy VII on the PS4.
The game is available right now over on the PlayStation store. The actual Final Fantasy VII: Remake isn't due out on the PS4 until a long while from now.
