Square Enix have today confirmed the release of a demo for Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII on the Xbox360, with a PlayStation 3 demo to be launched from later on today.
The demo puts players in control of Lightning as she traverses the chaos-infested Yusnaan palace of her old ally, Snow. Players will experience Lightning’s new customization options and master the game’s completely overhauled battle system. For those who activate the Outerworld services and submit their battle scores of the final fight against Zaltys, the ‘Siegfried’ outfit will be unlocked in the full retail game. This seems familiar to the demo that the publisher has been flaunting at gaming conventions the last few months.
As a bonus perk for PlayStation 3 gamers, downloading and using the demo will unlock the Utsusemi Garb set which includes the Geavenly Fan weapon and the Kaminari shield item. The DLC pack will download with the demo and will be unlocked in the full retail game on February 11. The DLC pack will also be available to purchase for other customers later this year.
