Everything you must know about its download size, pre-order bonuses, and how to preload the Final Fantasy VII Remake on PS4 right now.

The Final Fantasy VII Remake is coming out in just a few days and all us JRPG nerds and geeks couldn’t be any more excited to don the iconic spiky blonde hair of Cloud once again. The game has been praised as a thrilling and thoughtful take on a beloved classic, and here you’ll discover how to preload it on PlayStation 4, what its download size is, and what pre-order bonuses you’ll receive.

There have been some complaints about the Final Fantasy VII Remake in opposition to all the praise such as it being slightly bloated and having texture quality issues on PS4 and PS4 Pro. However, away from these few complaints, the experience has largely been praised and you needn’t worry about it being too short as Square Enix have repeatedly stated that it’s as long as a mainline entry.

If you’re one of the many people itching to play Square Enix’s remake/reimagining from the second it launches, below you’ll find out how to preload and what pre-order bonuses you’ll be given.

What are the Final Fantasy VII Remake pre-order bonuses?

The Final Fantasy VII Remake digital pre-order bonuses are as follows:

  • An exclusive dynamic theme

  • Chocobo chick summoning Materia

Per the PSN Store, the ability to use summoning Materia will be unlocked partway through the experience.

While neither of these pre-order bonuses are anything special, you can instead buy the Deluxe Edition (£74.99) to get extra bonuses including:

  • Digital artbook

  • Digital mini-soundtrack

  • Cactuar summon Materia

  • Carbuncle summon Materia

Now that you know the differences between the Standard and Deluxe version, you must know what its download size is to ensure you have enough space to preload.
