One of the biggest surprises to uncover in Final Fantasy 7 Remake is the breadth of optional missions and characters around Midgar. While the battle between the rebels of Avalanche and the evil Shinra Electric Company is at the forefront, it’s worth taking some time to get to know the residents of the mako-powered metropolis. The side-quests in the FF7 Remake can be pretty extensive, and this is most evident towards the latter end of the game in Chapter 14.
In Chapter 14, you’ll regain control of Cloud, Tifa, and Barret in the Undercity following a pivotal moment in the plot. At this point, you have more leeway in where you can travel to in Midgar, allowing you fast-travel to previously completed areas. While you may feel tempted to skip the quests to continue with the story, you’ll miss out on some valuable items and Materia, which can help even the odds in the upcoming battles. But if you miss out on events here, don’t fret. After completing the game, you’ll be able to use the chapter select menu to travel back to any of the previously completed sections of the story.
