Square Enix Offers Free Copies Of Final Fantasy VII Over Accidental Re-Release

Over the weekend, the PC re-release of Final Fantasy VII accidentally went live. Players who bought the game found themselves unable to actually play it.

To apologise for the mistake, Square Enix is offering refunds and free copies of the game to anyone who bought it early.

When asked for comment by Kotaku, Square Enix sent over the following statement:

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.

    For those customers, Square Enix will be offering full refunds for the purchases (for a game you probably already own 2 or 3 times over.) and for their inconvenience, a free version of the classic FINAL FANTASY VII on PC when it is launched.

    Fixed

    Just fucking release it already.

      Agree. It's amazing that they can take so long, considering there are no enhancements to the game at all.

      *does anyone know what price it was selling for?

    I was actually interested in buying this until it was revealed that the game uses SecuROM. Seriously why put DRM in a game that's 15 years old?

      And this is why,

      :D

        That doesn't make any sense, The pirated copy wont have SecuROM!

        This game is an ideal candidate for the GOG.com system.

    No enhancement, but added DRM... I'll pass

    When I choose to replay it I'm going to install the 4 CDs and run the fan made HD texture packs.
