The description also notes that your progress will not carry over into the final game--which launches on April 10--and that some content may differ from the final product. Downloading the demo by May 11 will also entitle you to download a free PS4 theme, which will become available on April 10. You can get a peek at what the theme looks like below.

The Final Fantasy VII Remake demo leaked in January, and allowed data miners to uncover numerous details about the game that hadn't yet been revealed. This remake was initially meant to launch this month, but was delayed to the beginning of April for additional polishing time. We recently got hands-on time with the first three hours of the anticipated remake, which included new looks at the action-orientated combat and companion abilities in a saga that Square Enix wants to continue for generations.
