Square Enix Offering Free Copies Of Final Fantasy VII

Final Fantasy VII is easily one of the most popular RPGs in the world, and despite the fact that it’s been 15 years since it was released on the Playstation, people are still clamoring to play it once again. So, with that in mind, Square Enix announced earlier this year that they were re-releasing what is perhaps the number 1 RPG in the world for the PC. And while they hadn’t announced a release date for it yet, it appeared for a short while that they were going to forgo putting out a release date altogether, as the game appeared for sale on Square Enix’s store over the weekend.

However, that “release” didn’t last long, as it was quickly pulled off of the store. The few people who did manage to purchase and download the game found out that they couldn’t actually access the game. Luckily, though, Square Enix announced some good news for those unfortunate fans who purchased a game they couldn’t play.

It appears that the reason why the game showed up on the store in the first place has to do with the fact that the Square Enix team was testing the product’s website for the upcoming launch of the game. And while it sucked that some people bought the game (which was listed at $12) and couldn’t play it, Square Enix is offering a full refund for their purchase, and are also offering a free copy of the game when it finally is launched. Square Enix did claim that the copy of the game that was purchased over the weekend was a “pre-release” build of the game, but if I had to guess, we might not have to wait too long to see Final Fantasy VII once again!
