Several media outlets have gotten some hands-on on Final Fantasy VII Rebirth, and with that comes some new information about the upcoming follow-up to Final Fantasy VII Remake.
One of it being the install size, which explains why the game will ship in two discs.
In an interview with Game Informer, game director Naoki Hamaguchi revealed that the game will be 150GB in size.
One disc will have 100GB of data, the other one with 50GB.
However, there won’t be any disc-swapping required to play Final Fantasy VII Rebirth. So this is a case of having one disc dedicated to install files on the console, while another the dedicated play disc. Something akin to Red Dead Redemption 2, which also shipped in two discs.
The choice of having two discs isn’t necessarily to recreate the nostalgia of the original Final Fantasy VII (which shipped in three discs), but to allow designers to freely design the game world without scaling back on content and ideas.
Hamaguchi previously stated that the game has 100 hours worth of content.
Final Fantasy VII Rebirth will be out on February 29, 2024 for PS5.
