If you cannot wait for the new FF7 game’s full release, make sure to download the Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth demo right now to experience Square Enix’s new update.

Although Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth doesn’t come out until February 29th, the review embargo date is much closer.

Many are expecting the title to be an early game-of-the-year contender, and it’s only natural that expectations are so high as the FF7 Remake was incredible.
