As promised, Square Enix has released a playable demo of the Final Fantasy VII remake, which is available for download now at the PlayStation store. By now, pretty much everyone knows how beautiful the re-imagining of the 1997 classic is, but Final Fantasy fans can find out today whether it plays as good as it looks.
The Final Fantasy VII Remake demo weighs in at 7.55 GB and comprises the first chapter of the game – “the iconic Mako Reactor 1 bombing mission.” Square Enix has warned that the progress will not carry over to the full release of the game, which isn’t too surprising. Content may also be different from the retail version.
Final Fantasy fans who download the demo before May 11, 2020 will get access to an exclusive theme. There’s no indication of what it looks like, but it’ll presumably incorporate some of the key art that’s been released already.
Final Fantasy VII Remake will be released on the PS4 on April 10. A PC release hasn’t been confirmed yet, but according to the box art, it’s a timed exclusive until April 10, 2021.
