The demo will allow players to start a new game of Final Fantasy XVI and play the opening prologue, which features over two hours of gameplay. Once the prologue content is cleared, a special battle demo will unlock, in which players can experience the action combat of Clive with additional Eikonic abilities. Save data from the prologue portion of the demo can be carried over to the full game when it launches. Players will not be able to save progress from the battle demo.
Here is the global demo release schedule:
