Gamers have been waiting to play Final Fantasy XV for a long time, but a chance to sample the gameplay is coming soon. A downloadable demo for the next numbered Final Fantasy will be available in 2015, and lets players see some opening sections of the game in action.

Square Enix is calling the demo Episode Duscae, and though it focuses on the early parts of the game, some elements of the progression have been altered in order to make it more suitable for a demo experience.

Some players will be able to get Episode Duscae for free thanks to a voucher included with Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, which releases on March 17 in North America. A representative from Square Enix could not confirm that the demo will be available the exact same day as Type-0 HD, but it will be coming to both PS4 and Xbox One when it does release.

The XIII demo was a run through a straight corridor. How is that misleading?

Some players will be able to get Episode Duscae for free thanks to a voucher included with Final Fantasy Type-0 HD,

So it's like the Resident Evil 6 demo included with copies of Dragon's Dogma?
I'm okay with this as long as they don't put a sticker or whatever that takes up a chunk of the box indicating the demo voucher.

IIRC that demo was also available only 3 or so months after the game [Dragon's Dogma] launched.

That's kind of cool. So we can look forward to a demo of a game in development since May 2006 in March of 2015, maybe.

Nope.

8 had a demo with Brave Fencer Musashi.
12 had a demo in the Playstation Mag, IIRC.
13 had a demo with Advent Children Complete.

Paid demo with a stupid name. You're all class, SE.

That release date seems nice though.

Paid demo, or you get the demo with a full game at a premium.

Sounds good to me. Just what everyone wanted.
