In anticipation of the April 10th launch of Final Fantasy VII Remake (pre-order at Amazon), Square Enix announced today that PlayStation owners across the globe can now get their hands on a playable demo for the game!
Available to download now from the PlayStation Store, the demo allows players to experience first-hand the opening chapter from the game, and the events of the iconic Mako Reactor 1 bombing mission. In addition, those who download the demo before May 11, 2020 will also receive an exclusive PlayStation 4 theme when the full game launches next month.
In Final Fantasy VII Remake, players will be drawn into a world where the Shinra Electric Power Company, a shadowy corporation, controls the planet’s very life force. Cloud Strife, a former member of Shinra’s elite SOLDIER unit now turned mercenary, lends his aid to an anti-Shinra organization calling themselves Avalanche.
The first game in the project is set in the city of Midgar, and is a fully standalone gaming experience designed for RPG players that crave unforgettable characters, a powerful story and the ability to choose their style of play with a battle system that merges thrilling real-time action with strategic, command-based combat.
Last month, Square Enix revealed the opening movie for the Final Fantasy VII Remake. The footage showcases the gorgeous visuals of the eclectic city of Midgar, backed by newly orchestrated music.
Additionally, fans will get to experience the music from Final Fantasy VII Remake live during the recently-announced Orchestra World Tour starting in Los Angeles this June. Vocalist Yosh, will also appear at the June 14th concert to perform the theme song for the remake, titled “Hollow.”
Further concerts will take place in San Francisco, Fort Worth, Atlanta, Phoenix, New York, Chicago, Denver, Nashville and Boston with more dates and cities to be announced soon.
The concerts will feature music from the game’s soundtrack performed by a majestic orchestra and full chorus, all conducted by GRAMMY Award winner Arnie Roth known for his work on Distant Worlds: music from FINAL FANTASY. For more concert and ticketing information, visit FFVII-RemakeConcerts.com.
