People Can Play Some of FFVII The First Soldier During Maintenance (Update)

People Can Still Play FFVII The First Soldier During Maintenance

Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier is now available. However, launch isn’t exactly smooth. Connection issues plagued the game once things kicked off. As such, Square Enix began FFVII The First Soldier maintenance. However, the company announced that some elements of the Final Fantasy battle royale can still be “played” while maintenance is ongoing. Update: As of 12:15pm ET on November 17, 2021, maintenance is over.

Not long after launch on November 17, 2021, Square Enix reported server congestion. Which in turn caused connection issues. At 8am ET, it announced FFVII The First Soldier maintenance to deal with the problem.

While that is happening, some areas of the game still can be used. People can still start it up. They can head into the character creator to make their avatar. The tutorial is also available. However, Square Enix and Ateam didn’t mention how long the FFVII The First Soldier maintenance will last.

Final Fantasy VII The First Soldier is now available on Android and Apple iOS devices. As over two million people pre-registered, everyone who plays will get things like a Chocobo egg and Shinra helicopter skin.
