Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII Demo Now Available

A playable demo for the latest game in the Final Fantasy franchise, Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, has been released for the Xbox 360 and will be released later in the afternoon today for the PlayStation 3.

Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII once again puts Lightning in the role of protagonist as she is awakened from stasis by the god Bhunivelze. She finds out that the world is set to end in thirteen days and it is her job to act as a savior by freeing humanity from the burdens of their heart and help guide them into the new world that Bhunivelze intends to create. Along the way she will find herself dealing with some familiar faces, all of whom now suffer from heavy emotional burdens that she must deal with.

The demo takes place in a chaos-infested Yusnaan palace that belongs to her old ally Snow. Players will be able to experience the new customization options and get a taste of the overhauled combat system. As a bonus, players that activate the Outerworld services and submit their battle scores from the final demo fight with Zaltys will have the Siegfried outfit unlocked in the full retail game. Players that also download the PlayStation 3 demo will automatically receive the Utsusemi Garb DLC, consisting of the Heavenly Fan weapon and the Kaminari shield, in the full retail game.

The Xbox 360 demo can be found here, while the PlayStation 3 demo can be found here.
