Sony has inadvertently disclosed that a demo for the highly anticipated Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will be available for PlayStation 5 (PS5) gamers starting Tuesday. This revelation came to light through a premature trailer release on the PlayStation Store, which was likely intended for a grand reveal during the Final Fantasy 7 State of Play.
The demo promises an immersive experience, allowing players to step into the iconic boots of either Cloud Strife or Sephiroth during the memorable Nibelheim episode. This sneak peek is a golden opportunity for fans to get a taste of the game's revamped mechanics and narrative twists ahead of its exclusive PS5 launch on February 29.
The leak was first spotted by eagle-eyed Twitter user @Wario64, who shared the news along with a screenshot of the PlayStation Store page detailing the demo's content. The tweet quickly caught the attention of the gaming community, sparking excitement and speculation about what the demo will entail.
