The PS5 demo for FINAL FANTASY VII REBIRTH has received a new update that expands upon the “Fall of a Hero in Nibelheim” demo released earlier this month with “Dawn of a New Era in Junon,” allowing players to try out another location in the game ahead of its release exclusively on PS5 on February 29, Square Enix has announced. The new update also “addresses minor graphical fixes, in addition to other adjustments.”

Square Enix on the new Junon demo:

“Dawn of a New Era in Junon” is available as a free update to the existing demo and sees Cloud, Tifa, Barret, Aerith and Red XIII emerging into the outskirts of Junon, a fortified stronghold replete with an underwater reactor. Set several hours into the main storyline, this special preview made specifically for the demo features a small piece of the massive in-game world that players can freely explore. Sniff out treasures with a trusty chocobo steed, craft valuable items with the new Item Transmuter, bravely embark on thrilling Combat Assignment missions and more.

Progression for the Junon demo can’t be carried over like the first, however, which also includes some unique rewards:

Players who complete the first part, “Fall of a Hero in Nibelheim,” will receive the Kupo Charm and Survival Set demo incentives and be given the option to skip the same section in the full game upon release, allowing players to get an early start on their adventure. Or if players prefer, they can choose to experience the section all over again.

Although save data from the “Dawn of a New Era in Junon” section cannot be carried over to the full game, as the content has been altered for a more compact experience, fans and newcomers can try out new forms of exploration while using powerful synergy attacks and witnessing the character bonds expressed through combat.
