Final Fantasy 7 Remake Mod Fixes Textures in Over 500 NPC Faces

A new PC mod for Final Fantasy VII Remake fixes texture troubles with hundreds of NPC faces. Over a year and a half after its PS4 launch, FF7 Remake finally hit PC via the Epic Games Store in December 2021. However, the long-awaited release harbored more than its fair share of issues at launch, many of which have yet to receive a proper fix.

The PC version of Final Fantasy 7 Remake arrived in such a poor state that some analysts even dubbed it "terrible," given the myriad immersion-breaking frame rate hiccups. Worse still, the graphical settings are incredibly bare, leaving players without the option to adjust anti-aliasing or tweak motion blur effects to their preference. FF7 Remake's PC iteration, thus, fell short of expectations, especially when considering the high praise it received on PS4. Fortunately, some talented members of the PC modding community remain committed to fixing what they can in an effort to ensure the remake reaches a higher standard of quality.

As spotted by DSOGaming, SamsamTS recently uploaded an "NPCs Faces Fix" mod for Final Fantasy 7 Remake on Nexus Mods. The mod replaces 530 NPC faces, which appear "veiny" on PS5 and PC, with textures that look more in line with their PS4 counterparts. In addition, these changes give players the option to implement 80 faces that were restored from the PS4 version. Comparison shots of FF7 Remake's PS5/PC build versus its PS4 iteration feature below, offering a clearer look at the "veiny" textures that SamsamTS mentioned:

If and when Square Enix plans on fixing these issues for all players is not yet known. As such, PC users looking for a solution may want to at least give Final Fantasy 7 Remake mods a try, particularly those that offer a notable graphics overhaul.

Square Enix released the long-awaited Final Fantasy 7 Remake in April 2020 on the PlayStation 4. The title has since received extra content in the form of the INTERmission episode, which features Yuffie Kisaragi as the main character. Of course, the wait continues for the remake's second part, though the publisher has yet to so much as tease when it will hit store shelves. In the meantime, millions seem to be enjoying the adventures in Final Fantasy XIV, even if server issues continue to weigh heavily on the overall experience.
