Sony will be hosting a PlayStation State of Play stream today. This particular stream will focus on Square Enix's "Final Fantasy VII Rebirth", which is due to launch at the end of this month. The game is the second part in the "Final Fantasy VII Remake" series which reimagines the classic game with updated graphics, combat, and an even more confusing story.
This State of Play will only cover "Final Fantasy VII Rebirth" so don't expect any other announcements, but it will provide an extended look at the game. In addition to extended gameplay footage, we can also expect to find out what will happen to Aerith, a character whose fate in the 1997 original was a major shock to players at the time.
Additionally, The Verge is reporting that a demo will be coming sometime after the stream, so we'll likely get details on that during the conference. So far, the leaks indicate the demo will allow players to control either Cloud or Sephiroth.
