Final Fantasy VII Rebirth gets its first patch today – here’s what’s included

The fact that Final Fantasy VII Rebirth launched as such a polished product, despite its size and scope is a testament to the devs that made it happen so smoothly. This has allowed them to settle down and concentrate on ironing out any of the more annoying minor issues that remain and that would seem to be the aim of this patch, which, while not having any major changes, will sort out one or two issues that may have been annoying you while you play.

Most of the fixes here are not to sort out game-breakers, although there are one or two hidden in there, but there are a lot of Quality of Life tweaks that will make the game more enjoyable. Corrected text, better guidance, and some graphical issues altered. Let’s have a look at what we get for our download today.
