It’s been a long wait, but Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is almost here. For those opting for a digital copy, you can minimize the wait by preloading the game on your PlayStation 5, ensuring it’s ready to play right when it launches.
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth Reload Information
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is set to be quite sizable. Naoki Hamaguchi mentioned in a September 2023 interview with Game Informer that the game would be a whopping 150GB. According to PlayStation Game Size’s post on X (formerly Twitter), the exact size is 145.250GB. Before the release date, it’s wise to check that you have enough storage space to accommodate this massive download.
Once you’ve sorted out your storage situation and decided to preload Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, ensure you’ve pre-ordered a copy of the game. There are various options available, including standard, digital deluxe, and the twin pack, so choose the one that suits you best.
You can begin preloading Final Fantasy VII Rebirth on February 27, 2024, giving you two days to complete the hefty download.
How to Preload Final Fantasy VII Rebirth
Preloading Final Fantasy VII Rebirth is a straightforward process. Just follow these steps, and you’ll be all set to dive into the game on launch day:
- Go to the PlayStation Store.
- Purchase Final Fantasy VII Rebirth.
- On February 27, when the preload option becomes available, select Final Fantasy VII from your PS5 home screen to start the download.
If you’ve preordered a physical copy like myself, you might have to wait a bit longer than digital buyers. However, there’s plenty to keep you occupied in the meantime, such as the upcoming Junon episode of the demo.
