Final Fantasy 7 Remake release date update: Bad news for PS4 fans ahead of launch

Final Fantasy 7 Remake fans have been dealt a blow ahead of the game’s April 10 release date.

With some physical copies going out to pre-order customers early, new details have emerged about the upcoming role-playing game.

As pointed out by DualShockers, the back of the Final Fantasy 7 Remake box seemingly confirms the file size.

And it’s bad news if you’re running low on hard drive space, because the Final Fantasy 7 Remake is said to weigh in at a massive 100GB.

Fortunately, however, Square Enix appears to have brought the pre-load date forward for Final Fantasy 7 Remake.

Fans who have pre-ordered a digital copy from the PlayStation Store will be able to start downloading the game from April 3.

This gives customers a week to install the game on the PS4 ready for launch.

It’s especially handy with Sony reducing download speeds for the PlayStation Network during the coronavirus lockdown.

If you’re on the fence about the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, then it might be worth downloading the recently released PS4 game demo.

Available as a free PS4 download, the Final Fantasy 7 Remake demo drops players into the early stages of the game.

“The new demo features a lengthy segment from the very beginning of the game: the iconic bombing mission against the Shinra Electric Power Company, and the subsequent escape,” reads a PlayStation Blog post.

“You’ll control two of the game’s cast – spiky-haired ex-SOLDIER Cloud Strife, and the ballistically-limbed Barret Wallace – and enact a dangerous plan to infiltrate and destroy Mako Reactor 1.”

The mission culminates with a battle against the iconic Scorpion Sentinel. Unlike the original game, however, this battle won’t be over quickly.

“When you reach your target, you’ll encounter the Scorpion Sentinel. It may be the first boss of the game, but don’t expect this mechanical monstrosity to give you an easy ride,” the post continues.

“If you manage to beat it, don’t think you can relax – you still have to escape from the complex before it collapses around you. But did you give yourself long enough to do so…?”

If you’ve played the demo and want to know more about the Final Fantasy 7 Remake, then you should check out Express Online’s early verdict.
