fite me

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. Check out the full patch notes, and jump on below to watch the trailer for the middle of the ending.

I liked the first rhapsodies of vanadiel story quite a bit, though it was a tad short.  Definitely looking forward to hopping into this one, really glad to meet up with prishe and aphmau for the first time in a while.  Kind of weird to me (and worrying) that CoP, ToAU and WotG characters are in this update, because if the last one  centers only on SoA… I mean come on not too many people have actually done SoA and it doesn’t hold NEARLY the same emotional connection for most people as the previous ones.  Not to mention the first rhapsodies update only centered on RoZ, which most people also probably don’t find as memorable.

Dope_Danny DontaleMobasa I assume they just didn’t want to put the effort into porting it (xbox 360 was a bit different because there was a special deal between SE and microsoft) but I would certainly rather see it come to vita than to phones/pads.

Dope_Danny I don’t know if a moblie version is going to fly with me regardless of who made it.

Its free login campaign is making going back to Vanadiel really tempting, but im still in my first month of Heavensward and i dont have the time for both, sad to see the story ending, but it had a damn good run and its nice to see an mmo story get proper closure instead of lurching on as some bloated monster with asspull expansions forever.

now i just hope Nexon doesnt blow it.

Yeah i know, Nexon..
