We've played Final Fantasy VII Rebirth for four hours, and during that time we had the chance to venture out into the game's open world, exploring the Grasslands and its various landmarks, where orcs and other monsters dwell. Also chocobos.
While our Final Fantasy VII Rebirth preview has already blathered on about how expansive the upcoming Remake sequel is going to be, in our gameplay video below (different to the footage shown during State of Play), you can get a slightly better idea of the sort of scope you'll be dealing with come the game's launch later this month.
There's plenty of combat, a chocobo capture segment (with the numerous failed attempts mercifully edited out), and an epic boss showdown with the Midgardsormr serpent that ends in tears. You can enjoy all of the action in the gameplay video below. And if that gets your juices flowing, you can download the Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Demo for PS5 now, featuring a playable section of the game's opening chapter.
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is coming to PlayStation 5 on 29th February.
