Square Enix Announces Platinum Demo: Final Fantasy XV

Square Enix has released a brand new demo for Final Fantasy XV, featuring young Noctis.

Platinum Demo: Final Fantasy XV was announced tonight at Square Enix’s Uncovered: Final Fantasy XV event. Platinum Demo puts players in the shows of a young Noctis as they guide him through a fragmented dreamscape. The storyline is exclusive to the demo, and gives players the chance to try out Noctis’ different weapons, magic, and driving abilities. Carbuncle serves as Noctis’ guide and ally throughout the demo. Successfully completing the demo will unlock Carbuncle in the full game.

This will be Final Fantasy XV’s second demo. Final Fantasy XV: Episode Duscae launched over a year ago alongside Final Fantasy: Type-0 HD. That demo gave players an early taste of the game’s mechanics and open world. Platinum Demo, on the other hand, appears to be a more linear experience.

Platinum Demo: Final Fantasy XV is available for download tonight on PS4 and Xbox One. Final Fantasy XV is set for release September 30.
