“The demo will give PlayStation 5 players a taste of the game’s vibrant world and fast-paced action combat with two lengthy sections showcasing what you can expect from FFXVI. The first is the game’s opening prologue, approximately a two and half hour slice of gameplay giving players insight into Clive Rosfield’s past and the events that set him on his present day journey. Save data from this portion can be carried over to the main game when it launches next week,” a PlayStation Blog post details.
By completing the prologue, you’ll unlock a special battle demo that is approximately two hours and action-heavy. This includes a fort infiltration with Clive supported by Torgal and Cidolfus Telamon. You’ll face off against various enemies and face bosses. Sadly, progress won’t be saved for this section of the demo, but it allows you to try the combat system out before Final Fantasy 16 launches on June 22.
