Square Enix has announced that the Final Fantasy VII Rebirth demo will be available on PS5, giving players a chance to experience the opening chapter of one of the most highly anticipated games of 2024. The demo will consist of two parts, with the second section set to be released on February 21st, allowing players to preview the vast game world before the official launch on February 29th, exclusively on Sony console. This news was revealed during a Sony Interactive Entertainment State of Play dedicated to the game.
During the State of Play, in addition to the demo, the final trailer for the game was also presented, which provides an overview of the plot and characters, including the group’s mission to chase Sephiroth and save the planet. The trailer also showcases new locations, minigames and returns of familiar characters. A new battle system has been introduced that combines real-time action with strategic controls.
The “Fall of a Hero in Nibelheim” demo includes an extensive flashback section that allows players to relive crucial story missions set five years before the main events of the game. On February 21st, this section will be updated with a new title “Dawn of a New Era in Junon,” offering additional exploration and combat possibilities. It is important to note that progress made in this section will not be transferable to the full game, while steps present in the first demo can be skipped in
