With Final Fantasy VII Remake out this week for the PS4 and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic disrupting supply of physical copies of the hotly anticipated RPG, some fans who want to play Final Fantasy VII Remake day and date may be forced to go digital.

Considering Sony has relaxed its policy on pre-loads, letting Final Fantasy VII Remake digital buyers pre-load it from April 3 and the game having a colossal 90.62GB download size, it’s one of the few games that may see real-world use of the PS4’s play as you download feature.

In our time with the Final Fantasy VII Remake we noticed that the minimum download required to start the game is 13.75GB. After download this much, you are able to play through Final Fantasy VII Remake’s first chapter, which incidentally was the entire demo section.

After completing the Scorpion Guardian boss fight and escaping Mako Reactor 1, the game auto-saves. When you’re done downloading the rest of Final Fantasy VII Remake, you can continue from where you left off.

Final Fantasy VII Remake releases on April 10 for PS4. When we have an updated time frame for the physical release in India, we will post about it. For what it’s worth, Final Fantasy VII Remake is a welcome return to form for Square Enix’s long-running franchise.
