Square Enix finally unveils 'Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin." The developer will officially release the game in 2022 on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5 and PC. But the game is currently available on PS5 as a limited-time demo. 

There is a PS5 exclusive demo available to play today, which you can download immediately, which was revealed during Square Enix Presents at E3 2021 and produced by Ninja Gaiden and Nioh studio Team Ninja. The demo will be available until June 24, 2021, at 7:59 p.m. PT (10:59 p.m. ET). However, as of this writing, rumors are circulating that the Stranger of Paradise demo is corrupted.

 

 

It's unknown whether the demo's planned availability will be extended due to these technological challenges,  Screen Rant said. The Trial Version was planned to be accessible from June 13 to June 24, with a game survey available from June 13 to June 30. Suppose the flaws with the Trial Version can't be rectified in a couple of days, Square Enix may decide to prolong the time it's available. This isn't the first time Square Enix has had to extend a timed deal due to unforeseen circumstances.

The gameplay trailer featured souls-style action, with the main protagonists attempting to "kill chaos" If there was ever a goal that was absurd, it was this one. According to the YouTube trailer description, the main character's name is Jack, while his allies are Ash and Jed. Intending to defeat Chaos, the trio opens the gates of the Chaos Shrine. They could be the Warriors of the Light, according to a prophecy.

"While it is Final Fantasy, it feels different—but there's no doubt that the blood of Final Fantasy runs through its veins. We've undertaken the challenge of finding this difficult middle ground for this mature and stylish title. We need a little time until we're able to complete it, and while the battle system is a bloody one, it does link to the story, so I hope you'll use this opportunity to give it a try," Final Fantasy veteran Tetsuya Nomura, the game's Creative Producer, remarked in a press release per The Verge.

IGN said a leaked version of Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin surfaced last month. Reports claimed that the game would take a 'soulslike' approach in the vein of Nioh. It joins Final Fantasy 16, Final Fantasy Remake 7 Part 2, and Final Fantasy 14's Endwalker expansion as the fourth new Final Fantasy game under development.
