This will be an expanded Midgar, with a lot of new content and (presumably) much more area to explore than the original. New story beats, expanded story beats, new characters, expanded development of old characters, more sectors, etc. It'll tell the story of the resistance group Avalanche trying to bring down the nefarious Shin-Ra corporation in a city teeming with class imbalance and oppression. It'll be made to feel like a full game. Sequels will likely go the expected paths of (OG spoilers)
the broken remnants of Avalanche on the run in a vast world, while also following the path of the mysterious Sephiroth, followed by ShinRa's eventual collapse and concentrating on stopping Sephiroth/Jenova from destroying the planet.
I feel like there needs to be a stickied primer thread or something - at least BOLD bullet-points at the start of all FFVII-R threads, because the amount of confusion with this game is still persisting, despite this info being out there since June.
-FFV-R is Midgar only. It's big and expanded. It's not 1:1 based on the original. Some things will be different.
-We don't know how many parts yet.
-No, there is no PART 1 on the box.
