If you want to try Final Fantasy XV before its release, turn on your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One.

Square Enix has announced Platinum Demo, a standalone precursor to its anticipated action role-playing game. The demo stars a young Noctis, the main character of Final Fantasy XV, and gives players a taste of combat and allows them to unlock content in the main game, namely the ability to summon the character Carbuncle.. The demo is available now on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

A leak earlier today revealed that Final Fantasy XV will come out on September 30.
