Final Fantasy 7 PC Now Available for Download

Final Fantasy 7 for PC is now out!

Last week, Square Enix accidentally let the HD re-release of Final Fantasy VII for PC slip on the official website for $12.70. Many purchased and downloaded the re-release and found that they were locked out of the game due to Secu-ROM. Square Enix quickly refunded all sales and promised the angry customers who had already purchased the game a free copy for the mistake. Even with the slip-up, Square Enix didn't give an official release date.

Still, there'd be no reason for Square Enix to be "testing" uploading Final Fantasy VII for PC onto the website unless the game wasn't far from launch… and that seems to be the case as Final Fantasy VII has officially launched for both Europe and the U.S.

As the company mentioned in the initial announcement of the re-release, Final Fantasy VII for PC will only be available in the Square Enix store.

Final Fantasy VII for PC will not be $12.70 as was originally priced when the game launched in error, but $9.99.

    Still waiting for the FFIV & VI 3D remake. These two games are the only memorable ones that came out of Squaresoft.

    Before I jump and buy it, I'll wait and read some reviews to see if it really has been updated. I'm worried about the cloud save that Square Enix is talking about, bcuz if that is the only way to save it, then I'm not buying it.

    Sadly i doubt it, the studios are busy making CoD 25 and milking the other franchises. When those franchises die we might see something more creative than the 95% overly streamlined games we see today.

    First line of this own article: "...accidentally let the HD re-release..."

    How do you know it was the HD re-release, if nobody could play it?

    The game is available now for purchase on PC in both the US and EU as far as I can see, with the exceptions of a few countries that seem to be having trouble buying it over at the EU store. Australia, New Zealand, and I believe Poland too, can't seem to buy it yet for some reason.

    It seems I can not get it in South Africa. Way to go Square Enix. This is one good example why software pirating occurs.

    I never really got to playing this game fully when I was a kid. I know Im a bit late, but I want to see what all the fuss is about. I doubt its any better than FF6, but if its as good as people(fanboys) say, then its worth my $10.

    It's still good. Better than X in my opinion. Although it's no better than VI or IX (my personal favorite)

    Wow. Video games have gone the way of Hollywood. Full of reboots and remakes of originals.

    Not sure if anyone knows the answer to this, but does it include all the boss fights that were on the PSone version?

    As I believe they missed out Ruby Weapon on the PC version, which is the reason why I replay it on my psx as opposed to my pc.

    Hopefully they didn't use the 1998 PC version's soundtrack. MIDI music... eww.
