Final Fantasy 7 The First Soldier

Babylon’s Fall isn’t the only Square Enix live service title shutting down in 2023. The publisher announced that Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier, a free-to-play battle royale title for iOS and Android, is ending its service on January 11th, 2023, at 12 AM PT/3 AM ET.

In a recent statement, Square Enix said, “Despite all our efforts to bring you regular updates with fresh and exciting content, we haven’t been able to deliver the experience that we were hoping and that you all deserve. So we have made the extremely tough decision to end service for Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier.” Non-English languages see support ending on October 31st, 7 PM PT, after which only English text will be available.

Shinra Credits are no longer available to purchase in-game, but players can use any remaining Credits till the game shuts down. Updates will continue to roll out over the next few months, so existing players can expect new things to do.

Released on November 17th, 2021, for mobile devices, Final Fantasy 7: The First Soldier is a prequel to the mainline series. Though essentially a third-person battle royale shooter, it also featured several Final Fantasy elements like Jobs (called Styles in-game), magic, Summons, and even monsters on the battlefield. It’s seen numerous updates and seasonal content since its launch, with Season 4 currently ongoing.
