Square Enix preps 19-year Final Fantasy XI anniversary celebration
Events will take place as part of the May version update to one of the genre's elder successes.
You may not have known it, but Final Fantasy XI has been kicking around for quite some time. Square Enix is planning to celebrate the MMOs surprising longevity, with updates that include a new story and characters as part of the "The Voracious Resurgence" storyline.
A May update to the game includes a bunch of stuff that makes next to no sense to me, someone who has not played the game for myself. Here is a rundown of the added content, shamelessly cribbed from a press release:
Final Fantasy XI originally released in Japan on November 7, 2002 and headed west most of a year later. It has received numerous proper expansions, as recently as Final Fantasy XI: Seekers of Adoulin in 2013, and apparently continues to enjoy a sufficiently avid following to justify continued support and events. Do you suppose we'll witness another celebration next year, when 20 years of fantasy fun role around?
