Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is loaded with plenty of side quests that let you understand the lore deeply and here’s whether you can miss them after reaching new chapters and the exact point of no return in the game.

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is an expansive adventure in which you search for Sephiroth alongside your party. From a new combat system that lets you try out team-based combos to a solid campaign to nerve-wracking boss fights, many things helped the game get a positive response from fans worldwide.

Although you can complete the main story in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth in about 40 hours, the side missions and mini-games can easily encourage you to spend hundreds of hours. However, the chapter-based approach has left many wondering if you miss side quests after entering a new chapter in the game.

So, here’s everything to know about the missable content in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth and whether you can do side quests later.

Can you do Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth quests later?

Yes, you can do Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth side quests later and they aren’t missed while moving from one region to another. Since this was a major issue in Remake that fans talked about, Square Enix tried to make the experience better in their new title.

Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth features a backtracking system that will allow you to come back and finish off any side missions that you’ve missed out on, even after you’ve finished the final story mission or made considerable progress through the storyline.

There are a few games that don’t let you come back to older areas if you’ve progressed considerably in the story. They directly take you to the New Game+ mode once you’ve defeated the final boss.

However, it’s worth remembering that you won’t be able to access the side quests if you’re in a Dungeon or within some specific quest. After you finish them, you will be able to navigate freely through the open world once again.

Is there a point of no return in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth?

The start of Chapter 13 when you’re about to board the Tiny Bronco is the point of no return in Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth. As you’re about to enter, the game warns you that you can now return only after completing the campaign.

However, you’ll unlock the Chapter Select feature after completing the main story allowing you to go back and finish any pending content, including side quests.
