'Final Fantasy VII' PC early buyers to get refund and free game

"Final Fantasy VII" PC early buyers to get refund and free game.

Square Enix is offering a full refund and free copy of Final Fantasy VII PC to players who bought an unfinished version released prematurely on the company's online store last weekend.

The game accidentally released early and was pulled from the store on Sunday when players found they could not authenticate the title with its provided serial numbers.

"This weekend, our teams were testing the product website for the upcoming relaunch of Final Fantasy VII on PC," a representative for Square Enix told Kotaku. "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."

The company promised more information on the game's official release soon.
