Square Enix appears to have finally fixed Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin demo for PS5 with their latest patch and should now be playable.
The Trial Version of Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin was supposed to go live following the Square Enix Showcase at E3 2021. However, when players attempted to download and play the game due to unforeseen circumstances, the file itself would corrupt. The new 1.03 patch has sorted out this issue, and the demo will now be available until June 24th. The demo in its entirety weighs in at roughly 11GB.

This Final Fantasy spin-off is being developed by Team Ninja, the studio behind Nioh. The plot focuses on Jack and his two companions Ash and Jed, as they set about to defeat evildoer Chaos and open the Chaos Shrine gates. Although, the combat has deviated from what you might expect from a Final Fantasy game and has embraced a souls-like battle system.
Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin is expected to arrive sometime in 2022 on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC.
