Square Enix has released a free demo for Dragon Quest 11 S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition. The downloadable demo is available now on Steam, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. The full game is launching December 4, and any progress made in the demo will carry over should you purchase the full game.

The demo features a hefty slice of content. The entire opening chapter is available, which Square Enix describes as up to ten hours long. You’ll learn how to battle in turn-based combat, meet allies and enemies, and explore the opening areas of Erdrea.

The Definitive Edition includes several major enhancements over the original 2018 release, which was one of our favorite games of the year. At any time you can switch the graphics to a 2D, pixelated retro mode to look like the original Dragon Quest games. The Definitive Edition also includes the original Japanese voice acting, a fully orchestrated soundtrack, and a new photo mode to show off your favorite characters and their outfits.

New story content has also been added, with side stories focusing on each of the main companions.

Dragon Quest 11 S: Echoes of an Elusive Age – Definitive Edition released earlier this year on Switch. It’s coming to PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on December 4. It’s rated T for Teen.
