Another piece of Final Fantasy VII media is coming to FFVII The First Soldier, as Advent Children elements are slipping into the game. Initially, character skins based on Cloud, Tifa, and Barret appeared. Now, Ateam and Square Enix announced people can fight or dress up as Bahamut SIN in FFVII The First Soldier.
There are multiple parts to this event. First, there’s a login event. Even if you don’t face this version of Bahamut, you get a reward. The items you can get for stopping by until May 5, 2022 include an emote, currency, and 12 Special Shinra Pack Tickets. Those tickets can be used to try and get Bahamut SIN character and weapon skins. You need to use 5 Shinra Special Pack tickets, like the ones from the login event, or 150 Shinra Credits, to pull and try and get one. However, keep in mind there is an issue at the moment. It is keeping the Bahamut SIN (FF7 AC) skin from working on people with female body type avatars in FFVII The First Soldier.
As for facing Bahamut SIN, it can show up in Standard Matches. When this happens, it goes from a PVP event to a cooperative one in which everyone fights the boss together. There are challenges with Special Shinra Pack Tickets until May 5, 2022 and EX challenges until May 9, 2022. Depending on how many times Bahamut SIN is defeated, people can all earn Shinra Pack Tickets. Up to 10 can be earned. People all get one if the boss is defeated 500 times. Everyone gets three for 1,000 defeats. Six are doled out for 2,000. If the foe is defeated 3,000 times, everyone gets 10 tickets.
Finally, there is a Comeback Campaign. If it has been 14 days since someone with an account over a month old played, they can get a bonus for coming back. They will get 10 Shinra Pack Tickets. If certain numbers of past players return, everyone will get additional tickets. At the 2,500, 5,000, and 10,000 marks, one ticket will be given out. So up to three can be given to everyone.
Final Fantasy VII: The First Soldier is available for Android and Apple iOS devices. Bahamut SIN can be fought in FFVII The First Soldier until May 9, 2022.
