Square Enix’s hit MMORPG continues to receive regular updates, but hasn’t added a new story since 2015.
Although Final Fantasy XI has continued to be updated through more or less regular patches, the Square Enix classic has received no new story content since Rhapsodies of Vana’s diel, which was released back in 2015. That update closed almost all the plots of the video game, but the story has not come to an end. Akihiko Matsui, producer of the title, has confirmed that a new episode is yet to come.
“The most important news I have to share is a new plot that will come to Vana’diel. This story, which will unfold over many updates instead of just a few, explores a face of Vana’diel that has never seen the light of day. ” However, it will be necessary to complete Rhapsodies of Vana’diel to enjoy this “wonderful new content, so I hope that everyone who has not experienced the Iroha story will take this opportunity to do so”.
The next #FFXI version update is scheduled for Thursday, August 6!
