This upgraded version of the PlayStation 4’s Final Fantasy VII Remake features a bundle of new updates exclusive to the PS5 edition, which includes two new visual modes to switch between ( “Graphics Mode”, which prioritizes 4k high-resolution graphics and “Performance Mode”, which prioritizes 60-frames per second). New “Classic Mode” difficulty settings were added as well alongside a fully customizable Photo Mode.
Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade will release physically and digitally worldwide on June 10, 2021. The Physical version will be limited to the Standard Edition, which is currently priced at $69.99 USD on the PlayStation Network.

In addition to the upgraded PS5 edition, Episode Yuffie was announced as well. This stand-alone content update follows Wutai’s very own materia hunter and elite special forces operative Yuffie Kisaragi as she and her companion, Sonon Kusakabe, infiltrate the city of Midgar to steal powerful Materia. This episode appears to progress alongside the main story campaign, and acts as a separate point-of-view from the AVALANCHE group. We also see the return of the Deepground Soldiers and Weiss from Dirge of Cerberus -Final Fantasy VII-.
Episode Yuffie will come bundled with with the standard and delux editions of FFVIIR:Intergrade as a complete package deal, according to the PlayStation Network page. However, players who utilize the free upgrade from the PlayStation 4 version to PlayStation 5 will have to purchase the content separately.
Unfortunately, Episode Yuffie will not be available for PlayStation 4, and is an exclusive content update for PlayStation 5 due to optimization reasons. (Source)
