Square Enix has reduced the overall size of Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth, from two Blu-ray discs to creative director Tetsuya Nomura promising that the game will offer 100 hours of adventure. However, in an interview with Game Informer, director Naoki Hamaguchi confirmed the game’s installation size on PS5 – a whopping 150 GB.
The first disk is 100 GB, while the second is 50 GB, but there is no disk swap as in the original game. Instead, you install the game with both disks and only need one to play the game. The team chose two discs to maintain their “lofty vision” for the title, which aims for a “massive, highly detailed world.”
Since one Blu-ray disc meant sacrificing content, the developer opted for two discs. So far, the scale seems huge, as the amount of side content is double that of the main mission. You will discover locations that are not even part of the central story, although Wutai is absent.
Final Fantasy 7 Rebirth will be released on February 29, 2024 for PS5.
