FFVII Remake - New Gameplay Mechanics
Dynamic 3rd Person Camera
Exploration and battles in FF7 Remake are viewed via a dynamic 3rd person camera. Players can move the camera to look around the environment and the battlefield.
Integrated Exploration & Battles
Transition between battles and exploration is now seamless. No loading screens are present when the game transitions from exploration to combat and vice-versa.
AI Teammates & Party Commands
The party now relies more on the AI for movement and attacks. However, the player can still manually give out commands even during the heat of battle, momentarily slowing down the game. Players can also change characters on the fly during battles.
The FF7 Remake demo allows players to see the new battle system. Players are now encouraged to actively participate in battle as opposed to the turn-based system employed by the original game.
Dodge & Block To Win
FFVIII Remake relies more on the player's active inputs, focusing more on timing and distance. Moves such as rolls to evade and blocks help reduce the damage taken. Players are also expected to watch and learn how the enemy attacks.
ATB or Active Time Battle is a turn-based timer system used by older Final Fantasy games. In FFVII Remake, they are filled by performing actions and having ATB allows a character to use items or use more devastating moves.
Pressuring & Staggering Enemies
Attacking relentlessly causes enemies to feel "pressured" and if you continue attacking them up to a certain point, they become "Staggered". Staggered is a new status effect that immobilizes and increases the damage taken by both bosses and normal enemies.
