Update 3: The Granblue Fantasy: Relink demo is now available worldwide on PS5 and PS4. As reported below, it's 26.5GB in terms of size.
Completing the demo's Story Mode and Quest Mode offerings unlocks rewards for the full release. You can also play through the included quests with other players online.
Update 2: It's here (for some of us)! The Granblue Fantasy: Relink demo is available to download now in Europe, on both PS5 and PS4. It weighs in at a rather chunky 26.5GB.
For those of you in North America, you'll need to wait until midnight in your region before it shows up on the PlayStation Store.
Update: It seems as though the Granblue Fantasy: Relink demo will actually release at midnight in your region. Initially, it was assumed that the demo would launch worldwide in conjunction with its midnight release in Japan on the 12th January, but the demo is already available in countries such as New Zealand.
Original Story: During its most recent Granblue Fantasy: Relink broadcast, Cygames confirmed that the game's playable demo will launch later today. It's set to go live on PS5 and PS4 at 12am JST on the 12th January — which is 3pm GMT / 4pm CET / 10am ET / 7am PT on the 11th January here in the west. We'll update this article when the demo is live.
The demo will include an early chunk of the single-player Story Mode, a smattering of missions from Quest Mod — which can be tackled with CPU allies or other players online — and a Tutorial Mode for those who want to practice their skills. You'll also be able to play as a bunch of different characters and tweak various loadouts to suit your needs. What's more, completing parts of the demo will net you rewards for the full game when it releases on the 1st February.
