The end is swiftly approaching for Final Fantasy XI – not a shutdown, but the end of the game’s active story and content additions. The second part of the story finale is the central feature of the game’s August version update, but it’s by no means the only part of the update, as the new Escha – Ru’aun region hosts a variety of new battle content and promises all sorts of diversions for dedicated players.
Players will also be able to explore a new sidequest and a new type of battle content pitting player parties against notable Seekers of Adoulin NPCs. There are also the usual bugfixes, quality of life improvements, and various other additions and expansions to the game of the sort that come with every major patch.
