The final story update of Final Fantasy XI releases tomorrow

    
15
It's so clear now that you are all that I have.

Tomorrow, Final Fantasy XI is launching its final story-based update. While there will be the occasional bugfix and balance change, the game is functionally ending tomorrow. So it seems only appropriate that the conclusion gets a fitting trailer to send off the story, complete with a parade of NPCs that will be familiar to any veteran adventurer of Vana’diel.

There’s more to the update than simply the end of the story, of course: A new area and new quests await, expansions and improvements are planned for job points, and players can rear new creatures in their Mog Gardens. Check out the trailer just below, and take a gander at the list of changes and additions before the whole thing ends tomorrow.

starcallerasterei I went back for a while long after my friends all stopped and it was fun but a very ‘lonely’ experience since the game is so empty nowadays.

At least my linkshell still plays together in Monster Hunter :p

Loopstah I’d rather see a FFXIV sub give access to both once its in maintenance mode.

It’s a real shame they’re closing the Xbox 360 version of the game, I had a lot of fun in that.

Sad that it’s ending. But appreciate them actually making a conclusion rather than waiting until it’s no longer profitable and then shut down the servers. I think it’s more fitting than just slowly bleeding developers and updates until you shut down the game.

Haven’t played it in a long time, but FFXI still the MMO I played longest.

I wish they enabled free trials. I understand that the game is going maintenance mode, but it would be fun to try the “hardcore version” of FFXIV.

I really want to go back to XI, but considering all my old friends have stopped playing its not as appealing. If it’s going into maintenance mode I wish they’d do away with the subscription fee, although I guess there’s still server costs to pay. I probably would have been playing a lot longer if it werent for the fact my recurring subscription just randomly started cancelling each month, causing me to have to pay a reactivation fee each month on top of the conversion fees for being in australia. Seriously, who charges you an extra fee to come back to the game

Eliot_Lefebvre Wratts SE handles MMOs better than any company imo.  Even if I don’t play them you can see they really care about the games and the players.

Its a sad thing that its over, but of the good 80 people i met through the game and still play games with today i’m the only one thats played XI in like 3 years. But i guess you dont put a successful game into maintenance mode but still its sad to think one of my first mmos i ever played is sunsetting, but at least it will still be around when i’d rather dick around in Valkurm Dunes instead of Thanalan :p

Wratts I honestly really like what Square is doing here – ending the game’s active development while keeping the servers open and making different use of the resources. It’s a solid.
