Square Enix is developing three upcoming downloadable scenario expansions for their marquee MMO (Massively Multiplayer Online) game, FINAL FANTASY XI. The creation of these three expansions is led by Masato Kato, who created the stories and scenarios for FINAL FANTASY XI and its first expansion pack, RISE OF THE ZILART.
Available exclusively for online purchase through the PlayOnline Viewer, these expansions will be made available simultaneously for all FINAL FANTASY XI platforms worldwide. The first expansion, entitled A CRYSTALLINE PROPHECY -- ODE OF LIFE BESTOWING, is slated for release in spring of 2009, with the remaining two stories, A MOOGLE KUPO D'ETAT -- EVIL IN SMALL DOSES and A SHANTOTTO ASCENSION -- THE LEGEND TORN, HER EMPIRE BORN, to follow in the months thereafter.
A CRYSTALLINE PROPHECY -- ODE OF LIFE BESTOWING: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 MOOGLE KUPO D'ETAT -- EVIL IN SMALL DOSES:It all started with an innocent drop of rainwater and a rickety, ramshackle Mog House desperately in need of repairs. Little did anyone suspect that this was only the beginning of a harrowing nightmare unheard of in the annals of moogle-kind.
A SHANTOTTO ASCENSION -- THE LEGEND TORN, HER EMPIRE BORN:The eccentric Professor Shantotto returned to Windurst one day after a mysterious, unexplained absence, shocking her colleagues with behavior so outrageous it put her old self to shame! When she goes so far as to proclaim herself ruler of her own empire, adventurers set out to discover the truth behind her alarming shift in personality.
Accommodating players in North America, Europe and Japan, FINAL FANTASY XI is the first massively multiplayer online role-playing game capable of simultaneous multiplayer cooperation across three different platforms. Now in its sixth year of service, FINAL FANTASY XI has a robust community of 500,000 subscribers and more than 1.7 million player characters from around the world. The series continues to evolve and expand, offering newcomers and fans alike an immersive, engrossing and engaging universe to traverse, defend and explore.
