Final Fantasy VII Remake Demo PS4 PlayStation 4

The highly anticipated Final Fantasy VII Remake is just over a month away, but of course, we all want to play it right now, darn it. Our very own Sammy Barker recently went hands on with the title, but if you want to try it for yourself, you're getting a free demo on PlayStation 4. The good news is that this demo is available to download right now.

The release date for the demo has been up in the air for a while, but it appeared GameSpot accidentally leaked a 3rd March arrival. As it turns out, this date was almost correct -- you can grab it today, 2nd March, a day earlier than expected.

What's included in the Final Fantasy VII Remake demo, you ask? Well, the PlayStation Store listing tells us you will be able to play through the game's first chapter. This includes the Mako Reactor 1 bombing mission, which we've seen before at E3 2019. Of course, this time you'll be able to try your hand at the game's combat. Progress made in the demo won't carry over to the full game, though, so bear that in mind.

The demo comes in at about 7.5GB, which is considerably less than the reported 100GB file size for the full game. It shouldn't take too long to download, and it's free, so why not give it a shot? Will you be taking Final Fantasy VII Remake for a spin with this demo, or are you saving everything for 10th April? Put your PS4 in rest mode in the comments below.
