State of Play has come to an end. As announced, we saw extensive material about Final Fantasy XVII Rebirth, which discussed individual elements of the game - plot, gameplay, side activities, graphics, music, etc.

As we expected, Square Enix announced that it will release a demo of FF VII Rebirth right after the show (it is available in the PS Store only on PS5). During it, we will play as both Cloud and Sephiroth. Interestingly, before the game gets released on February 29, 2024, the demo version will be expanded to include parts of the Junon city.

Original news (February 6th)

As announced, a new episode of the State of Play presentation will be streamed, dedicated entirely to Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth. The second part of the remake of undoubtedly the most famous installment of the series will be released on the last day of the month, and apparently Sony decided that the game deserves an extensive showcase.

The stream is available on YouTube, which allowed us to find out the stream's duration. State of Play Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth will last just over 19 minutes. When the stream starts, we will be able to watch it below.

It won't just be a gameplay presentation (including completely new parts of it). The material also aims to bring closer the "charms" of the game, and the gameplay itself will reveal how the game was designed. Not that the creators haven't been dwelling on this topic in recent months.

Moreover, a leak from PlayStation Network revealed that the announced demo will appear after the show, in which we will play as Cloud or Sephiroth during their visit to Nibelheim (via Wario 64 on X).

Rebirth is the second part of Final Fantasy VII's remake. To finish the story, we will have to wait for the third, as yet unannounced part of the remake.

Final Fantasy VII: Rebirth will debut on February 29 exclusively on PlayStation 5. At least for now, because the first part has already been released on PC and in the face of Sony's new strategy, it is almost certain that its sequel will also be released on that platform.
