Stranger Of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin's Demo Is Out, But You Can't Play It
The PlayStation 5 demo is currently unplayable--it cites that "the data is corrupted."
Unfortunately, it looks like Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin's PS5 demo may be corrupted. The demo launched following Square Enix's E3 2021 press conference, but some folks haven't been able to actually play it.
Once you download the demo, you may be greeted by the following message: "Can't continue using this game or app. The data is corrupted. Delete it from your PS5, and then download it again from your library."
We're not the only ones facing this issue. On Twitter, Nibel and IGN's Matt Kim have posted that they have also gotten this message after trying to download and play the Origin demo.
In a tweet, developer Team Ninja says that it is aware of the issues and is working to resolve them. This demo is only available for a limited time (it's live until June 24, 7:59PM PT) so hopefully a fix is coming sooner rather than later.
We're aware of issues being experienced while trying to download and play #StrangerOfParadise #FinalFantasy Origin Trial Version.— STRANGER OF PARADISE FINAL FANTASY ORIGIN (@fforigin) June 13, 2021
We're working to resolve this issue and will tweet an update as soon as we can, we appreciate your patience.
Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin injects a more Nioh-like gameplay formula into the Final Fantasy universe. In a press release, creative producer Tetsuya Nomura said, "While it is Final Fantasy, it feels different--but there's no doubt that the blood of Final Fantasy runs through its veins. We've undertaken the challenge of finding this difficult middle ground for this mature and stylish title. We need a little time until we're able to complete it, and while the battle system is a bloody one, it does link to the story, so I hope you'll use this opportunity to give it a try."
