Final Fantasy XI has withstood the test of time; people still play it after 7 years, even with tons of other MMOs dying to World of Warcraft! The first of 3 new expansions, A Crystalline Prophecy – Ode of Life Blessing will be available later this month.
The plot is officially described as; "One day, a giant crystal appeared in the skies above Jeuno, triggering a series of unexplained happenings across the land. Now, adventurers will set forth to unravel the mysteries of this primordial crystal that holds the secret of Vana’diel’s past."
A Crystalline Prophecy will launch March 23rd for $9.99FFXI Gil, and will be available in FFXI’s launcher.
No one in America really likes Final Fantasy XI. It's just a throwback to the MMORPG conventions that we all gleefully abandoned about the time World of Warcraft came out. It's the sort of game that appeals only to those who are willing to become soulless zombies surrounded by jars of fluorescent urine to appease The Grind.
No where did Final Fantasy XI Gil as badly as it did on the 360, where it only sold 72,194 copies. But Square-Enix seems to be taking an entirely different message away from this than the obvious one: your MMORPG sucks. They think it needs to be revamped for the 360, as well as the PS3.
Square Enix will develop a sequel to Final Fantasy XI ... for three platforms: Sony Computer Entertainment's next-generation PlayStation 3, the Xbox 360, and the Windows Vista PC operating system.In accordance with all Final Fantasy games with two sets of roman numerals after the title, we think the gameplay should feature a lot of picking out which type of wisdom-increasing panties to dress our pubescent teenage girl avatar in.
