A demo for Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is available right now for PlayStation 5 owners. This free demo allows you to explore some of the opening areas of the game's main story, Nibelheim. After an update set to arrive on February 21, 2024, the Junon area episode will be made available in the demo and will be accessible once you complete the Nibelheim content.

Square Enix is also offering some bonuses for the full game for those that have save data from this demo. Those items include a Kupo charm and Survival set.

The “Fall of a Hero in Nibelheim” demo features an extended flashback section, as Cloud Strife recalls an earlier mission in his career as a SOLDIER – “the Nibelheim incident.” This mission takes place five years ago prior to the setting of the game. Take control of a younger version of main protagonist Cloud Strife and the legendary Sephiroth as the two SOLDIER heroes investigate the sudden appearance of monsters in the mountains above Cloud’s hometown. When a dark truth comes to light, the course of their lives and the fate of the planet will change forever.

Full game unlocks if you have demo save data on your PlayStation 5:
  • Kupo charm: An accessory that increases the number of resource items extracted at a set rate.
  • Survival set: A selection of items to aid on your adventure, such as potions and ethers.​
It's important to also note that the upcoming Junon demo content has been altered from the main game in order to make it "more compact". This also means that progress made in the demo will not be able to be carried over to the full game when that releases as a timed PlayStation 5 exclusive on February 29, 2024.

While the Junon section progress will not carry over to the main game, progress within the Nibelheim section will carry over to the main game. Should you complete Nibelheim within the demo you will be allowed to skip that portion once Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth is fully released.

Square Enix also released a final trailer for Rebirth this evening. They also had a special gameplay showcase that aired, which you can also find embedded below. For those of you who want to go into Rebirth spoiler-free, it would be wise to not watch the following videos.

Further details during this evening's special State of Play include brief bits about minigames, side content, dialogue choices, party member bonds, synergy attacks, and word that the soundtrack includes over 400 tracks.
