Final Fantasy XI prepares its last anniversary year update for December

    
5
For you it's all in a day.

At this point, we would like to point out to our readers that Final Fantasy XI is in maintenance mode and has been for the entirety of the year. That has not stopped it from having monthly updates all throughout its 15th anniversary year, nor does it mean that December will be devoid of updates. A new Dynamis-Divergence area is on the docket, sending players into Bastok with the promise of significantly fewer hecteyes and scorpions than before.

Your rewards for going into that realm? More relic reforging, of course, this time for hands. You can also hop into Ambuscade to take on a fight against Harpeia enemies, or enjoy the usual array of bugfixes and quality-of-life improvements. Or you could just log in and enjoy the fact that the game in maintenance mode has a reliable and excellent update schedule. It’s all pretty great.

I think it is absolutely inspiring to see FFXI still going, and to see people still playing it.

The game has never been in maintenance mode. Why do you insist on calling it that now for what? 3 years? It is in marketing mode. When marketing mode slows down it will go into maintenance mode.

Gamers getting confused about marketing is the reason games are so bad now. And for journos to get confused by the simple tricks? For Christ’s sake.

Quite possibly as a bit of a jab at this bit from a press release back in 2015:

“After the final chapter of “Rhapsodies of Vana’diel,” the major updates to the game will cease, but maintenance to fine-tune content will continue.” (emphasis mine)
