During the recent Final Fantasy VII Rebirth State of Play, Square Enix announced that a demo for Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is now available via PlayStation Store. The demo lets you enjoy the Nibelheim episode “that forms the opening chapter of the game’s story, as well as the Junon area episode where you can experience the world map and exploration elements of the gameplay.” Players who play the demo will be able to skip the section in the full game and get both the Kupo Charm and Survival Set as rewards. The Junon area episode will become playable after an update on February 21, 2024 and can be accessed after completing the Nibelheim episode. Additionally, a final trailer and a PS5 immersion trailer for the game was also released. Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will launch on February 29 for PlayStation 5.
