Granblue Fantasy Relink demo lands on PS5, PS4 soon

The demo has three modes and exclusive unlockables for the full game

Cygames finally announced the long-awaited Granblue Fantasy Relink demo, and you can dive in soon – but only on PlayStation. The demo goes live on Jan. 12, 2024, for PS5 and PS4, and Cygames said in a press release that there are no plans to release a demo for Granblue Relink on Steam.

The news comes from Cygames' final Granblue Showcase, a 90-minute deep-dive into the game and what to expect from it. You can check it out below.

The Granblue Fantast Relink demo includes three modes. The first is story mode, which, as you’d expect from the name, gives you a brief look at Relink’s story and some of its battles and themes. Progress made in the Granblue story mode demo will not carry over to the full game, but if you keep the demo data on your system, you’ll unlock a special item in Relink that you can’t get otherwise. Cygames didn’t say what that item is, though.

Next is Quest Mode. This one throws you into some of Granblue Relink’s extra-narrative quests that you can complete solo or with friends, sort of like Monster Hunter missions. In this mode, you can play as:

  • Gran
  • Katalina
  • Rackam
  • Io
  • Charlotta
  • Ghandagoza
  • Narmaya
  • Lancelot
  • Siegfried
  • Yodarha
  • Zeta

Progress in Quest Mode also stays locked to the demo, but you’ll earn several – also unnamed – rewards in the main game for your trouble.

Finally is Tutorial Mode, which is pretty self-explanatory. If you want a handle on how Granblue plays ahead of its full launch on Feb. 1, 2024, then this is the mode for you.
