In Rebirth, as within the demo, you’ll have the chance to usually collect supplies to craft this stuff. Although it might appear somewhat time-consuming to dive out and in of the crafting menu to make objects, this mechanic retains you out of outlets extra typically, letting you purchase important objects out within the area and on the fly. You normally gained’t must go too far out of your method to discover supplies. What you’ll be able to collect as part of regular exploration will sometimes suffice.

Swap your celebration members on the fly with the command menu

Rebirth offers you three celebration makeups to swap between seamlessly. You’ll edit these within the Fight Settings choice within the menu and swap between them by urgent X and L1/R1 whereas touring.

After you’ve battled in VR or within the open world, tackle Fiend Intel assignments

Fiend Intel assignments are each an ordinary open-world exercise of every area in Remaining Fantasy VII Rebirth, and a stable method to be taught the fight system to arrange you for more difficult bosses in the primary story and elsewhere. They seem as crossed-sword icons on the map, which you’ll be able to view anytime by urgent the touchpad.

Every Fiend Intel project asks you to perform three duties (do you have to fail one, you’ll be able to retry with any present progress carried over to the subsequent battle). These are sometimes to Strain an enemy, Stagger them, after which defeat them inside the time restrict. You’ll be taught an enemy’s vulnerabilities by utilizing the Assess ATB motion, which Cloud has by way of the Assess materia he comes outfitted with.

Some duties ask you to forestall a Fiend from doing one thing. The “Zemze Breaks” mission, for instance, desires you to cease the creature from utilizing the Soothing Wind capability. Exploiting a creature’s vulnerability will typically cancel out such a capability, thereby guaranteeing that you just absolutely full the duty.

In Rebirth, you’ll want to finish every of the mini goals inside the Fiend Intel project to clear that goal.

Stat attributes defined

Rebirth’s demo doesn’t truly outline all of the character’s attributes. Let me do this for you:

  • Assault Energy: How a lot bodily injury you take care of “blades, weapons, fists, and claws”
  • Magic Assault Energy: How a lot injury you do with spells and magical skills
  • Protection: How a lot bodily injury you resist
  • Magic Protection: How a lot magic injury you resist

Unequip and reslot each character’s materia and equipment to completely perceive the mechanics

When you’ve mastered the fight, I like to recommend heading into the materia menu and unequipping each character’s materia and equipment (the demo doesn’t allow you to change out weapons and armor) and speccing out your characters from scratch. Within the materia and tools menu, press the touchpad and also you’ll see every materia orb your celebration has outfitted. You possibly can swap materia between them right here, or assign and unassign totally different orbs. Notice that one drawback of this view is that it doesn’t present you any modifications to particular character stats, however you’ll be able to verify that for every character of their separate menu system individually.

Take note of every character’s strengths and weaknesses. Aerith, for instance, has the perfect magic assault stat. So it’ll make sense to provide her some spell assaults to make good on that stat. Additionally, you’ll wish to search for the joined materia slots (they kinda seem like an infinity image). You possibly can increase how sure materia behaves this fashion, due to blue assist materia. For instance, slot within the blue “Amplify” materia with the “Therapeutic” materia, and that character can now heal your complete celebration by simply casting the spell as soon as.

Go see the sights after the Fiend Intel duties and earlier than combating the Terror of the Deep

Earlier than you head on off to battle the demo’s boss, thus ending the playable half, make sure to chart out throughout Junon to the extent the demo permits. Comply with chocobo chicks to unlock quick journey and relaxation factors, and in case your chocobo has a query mark seem over their head, maintain up on the D-pad to allow them to sniff round and presumably discover a cool merchandise to dig up.

When you’re performed with sightseeing, head on over to Below Junon and comply with Priscilla in your showdown with the Terror of the Deep. All the things listed on this information ought to assist you be higher ready to take the dangerous beast down.


Rebirth’s demo presents a small pattern of the open-world actions and mechanics of Remaining Fantasy VII Rebirth, but it’s a necessary alternative to be taught the sport’s new mechanics and modifications to Remake’s fight earlier than the complete sport arrives on February 29.
