Dedication. It elicits devotion, forges communities, and expands rapidly. Few others know this like Square Enix, whose prized Final Fantasy series has had a legacy upon gaming lore. Sure, some of them were not as good, some better than others, but Square Enix’s JRPG definitley has been a model of consistency for the past two decades. One game of note is XI; Square Enix’s ambitious forray into the MMORPG Landscape. Sure it did not catch fire like World of Warcraft, it has had a stable following for over a decade. Surely that requisites a reward right? For Square Enix? Yes.
A new Ultimate Edition sounds nice? It is. How about a campaign expansion entitled “Return to Vana’der?” You got it. Worried about no Double XP, new gear, and level cap? Square Enix has got you covered. However, there is one final icing on the Cake. Until November 25, gobble in and play for free as Final Fantasy XI goes free to play. After a decade, XI is still going strong. Seldom does a company give this much appreciation and support towards their products, and it is refreshing that Square Enid has given this workhorse new tires; considering XIV’s notable improvements.
With all of this goodness, what are your thoughts on Final Fantasy XI and Square Enix as a whole? What are your favorite games from the Japanese powerhouse? Do you think that Square Enid should enter a new type of genre in an ever growing online gaming community? Please sound off your thoughts and feelings below!
