Final Fantasy VII Remake demo available now
PS4 demo includes the opening chapter of the game
Square Enix has released a Final Fantasy VII Remake demo for PS4.
Available to download from the PlayStation Store, it lets players sample the game’s opening chapter, the Mako Reactor 1 bombing mission.
You can also watch VGC play through it in a newly published 35-minute Final Fantasy VII Remake gameplay video.
Announced at E3 2015, Final Fantasy VII Remake is an episodic project that will span multiple releases, the first of which was recently delayed by approximately one month to April 10, 2020.
The first game in the project covers up to the party’s escape from Midgar and “goes deeper into the events” which occur in the city than the original Final Fantasy VII, according to Square Enix.
Final Fantasy VII Remake is exclusive to PlayStation platforms for one year
Square Enix president Yosuke Matsuda has said Final Fantasy VII Remake’s delay won’t impact the company’s plans for Part 2’s release date.
In November 2019, Final Fantasy VII Remake director Tetsuya Nomura confirmed work on Final Fantasy VII Remake Part 2 was underway.
Producer Yoshinori Kitase has said the level of content being created for each Final Fantasy VII Remake title is comparable to that of a full game, and that he expects development of the second entry in the project to be “more efficient” than the first.
“While the development team finish the first game in the project, we are continuing to plan and outline the overall volume of content for the second,” he explained at E3 2019.
“Due to the work already done on the first game we anticipate development of the second game to be more efficient. We have our own internal schedule and plan, but for now we’d like to focus our information on the first game in the project.”
