Square Enix announced yesterday major updates for two of its Final Fantasy games XI Online and XIV Online, something that loyal fans are being rewarded with, and some big incentives for those who may have deactivated their accounts a long time ago.
We’ll start with FFXI to begin with. For those of you who aren’t in the know, FFXI came out fourteen years ago, and has continued to be updated by Square Enix since the launch. This new update is the final chapter in a very long saga detailing many adventures and an interesting past in the land of Vana’diel, the main region in which FFXI is set. The last chapter, called Rhapsodies of Vana’diel will be set in a brand new area called Reisenjima where the players will fight for the future of Vana’diel. As an incentive and commemoration for the game, all players who have had deactivated accounts from before October 23rd will be able to play the final chapter from November 13th to November 24th, and all the other digital download expansions will be available for a large discount as well.
Now, onto FFXIV! The recent release of Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward (which was only two days ago) has been updated to patch 3.1, called: As Goes Light, So Goes Darkness… Nice and positive from Square Enix there. The new patch includes a metric tonne of content, including a 24-player alliance raid on a haunted vessel, more missions, more quests, and more hairstyles. Additionally, an important character from FFXI, Iroha, will be appearing to give players the chance to participate in quests and obtain exclusive in game items.
