A new area called “Abyssea” is coming to Final Fantasy XI this summer.
Abyssea add-ons will be sold in three pieces starting with Vision of Abyssea in the summer. Scars of Abyssea and Heroes of Abyssea are scheduled for release later this year. (Where have we heard those names before…) Epic battles and epic loot (read: “AF3″) are the primary focus of Abyssea.
The bigger than Abyssea news is Square Enix plans to raise Final Fantasy XI’s level cap. This June, players can grind their way up to level 99 while fighting new notorious monsters.
Other changes include job specific emotes, new abilities, and merging servers to balance the number of players. Final Fantasy XI will go from 32 Eidolon named “worlds” to 24 in March.
Thanks for the tip Ereek!
