During the past weekend, someone accidentally released the PC version of Final Fantasy VII on Square Enix’s store. Many players bought that version, but due to some DRM issues, the game doesn’t work. Fortunately for those of you who bought the digital title, Community Manager Robert Allen Peeler said that the company will be providing refunds, as well as a free version of the classic role-playing game as soon as it comes out. Here’s the official statement taken directly from the Square Enix forums:
“This weekend, our teams were testing the product website for the upcoming relaunch of FINAL FANTASY VII on PC. While the website was being tested in its live state, a small number of people were able to purchase a pre-release build of the game. For those customers, Square Enix will be offering full refunds for the purchases and for their inconvenience, a free version of the classic FINAL FANTASY VII on PC when it is launched.
We want to thank our community for their continued support and excitement regarding the upcoming rerelease of FINAL FANTASY VII. We will have more information to share about the launch of this anticipated title shortly.”
It’s worth noting that the game’s official release date hasn’t been provided yet. But when it does come out, expect the upcoming digital game to cost around $12. For more information about this version of Final Fantasy VII and some of its new features read this.
