The Final Fantasy series has always stood out amongst its peers in terms of art style and visuals. Since the release of Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, a few players have noticed the vast texture and lighting differences between the “Performance” and “Graphics” modes. Well, if you happen to be one of them, I’m here to bring you good news.

In an interview with One More Game during one of Square Enix’s Rebirth launch events, Director Naoki Hamaguchi stated that a performance mode fix is on the way. The company has not yet disclosed full details about what’s included in the upcoming patch. Here’s what the director said.

We’ve received a lot of feedback on whether the graphics in the performance mode will be improved or not. We hear you, and we are currently working on an update patch to improve that aspect. I don’t think the release date would be far away from now.

We have heard from players that in certain situations, the facial lighting makes some character shadows look very scary. So that’s one part of the update that we are working on.

Personally, I’m running the game in Graphics mode. I’m one of those who isn’t sensitive to framerates and will always prioritize graphics over it. You could say that my storage capacity is already suffering from all the screenshots I’ve taken; I did the same when I played Final Fantasy XVI.

One of 2024’s biggest games, Final Fantasy VII Rebirth was released on February 29th exclusively for the PlayStation 5. In his review, Zach spoke of grand things about his journey outside Midgar.
