Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth has a surprisingly long demo for players to enjoy, containing the prologue and a huge open-world section.
Final Fantasy 7 fans rejoiced after a demo was announced during the Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth state of play. The demo gives players a taste of the adventure they’ll get to enjoy when it releases on February 29. However, many may be wondering just how long they’ll spend with the demo before waiting for the full release. Fortunately, it’s quite a long time.
The Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth demo will take players roughly 90 minutes to beat. This includes the prologue Nibelheim episode in which you play as either Cloud or Sephiroth. However, the additional Junon section will take players between 4 and 5 hours to beat, including completing all of the side content available.
The first part of the demo, the Nibelheim episode, lets you fully explore the town of Nibelheim, as well as the Mako Reactor. It is fairly linear, but there are several locations you can visit, including Tifa’s house. There’s plenty to see and do here, and it’s possible you can spend more time just exploring the small location. However, much like the Final Fantasy XVI demo, if you just focus on the story, you can be done in just over an hour. It’s important to note that all the progress you make in this section will carry over into the full game, allowing you to skip it if you choose. So, your time spent here won’t be wasted.
The demo is quite big, coming in at 48.6GB. However, while the initial part of the demo may be short, the second part in Junon will be substantially bigger, offering a proper look at the open-world gameplay. So, expect quite a lot of playtime from that section alone. That’s everything you need to know about Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth’s demo length.
