A large file size for a game of such caliber as Final Fantasy 16 was expected. Many AAA titles tend to get large during the development process. During the entry’s exclusive broadcast, the producer claimed that the initial plan for the title’s release was supposed to utilize two discs, However, six months before the launch date, the team managed to fit the game into just one disc by a hair’s breadth.
Recently, a demo was released for Final Fantasy 16 which lets players complete the opening chapter. The demo features a few combat mechanics and allows players to have a taste of the entry’s amazing visuals. Since the title is a timed PlayStation 5 exclusive, the demo is currently only available to download at the PlayStation Store, players can keep their save file from the demo if they purchase the complete game.
Final Fantasy 16 will release for the PlayStation 5 as a timed exclusive on June 22.
