    It’s astounding how this game is still around even after twelve years.

    Not many mmos get to enjoy that much life time.

    • Juan Andrés Valencia

      It’s arguably the most hardcore MMO out there next to Ultima Online and EVE Online so it’s still pretty unique.

  • AndyLC

    Goddamn, even after 12 years this game looks incredible. Very few modern games can match the design talent of FFXI.

  • Kaetsu

    People STILL play this game?!?!?

    • Aunna Terrell

      Yup! I have a few friends who left XIV to return to XI bc they got bored with the first update after ARR went live.

      • Ragna

        yeah I still playing FFXI been year when since i was 2005-2014 :D, I live in Oidn Server before Ifrit srver merged

    • Finicky Kumiho

      This comment still get’s said alot, at least whenever a FFXI topic
      come’s up lol. Yes people still play this game with 17 servers still up
      with each server having about 3000 players at max it has enough “Blood”
      to keep going and the fact you can solo the storyline and most NM’s with
      the right setup to get gear.

    • I actually wouldn’t be surprised at all if XI isn’t getting a little bit of “reflected glory” from XIV at this point – people who tried out a Final Fantasy MMO in XIV and then decided to check out that other long-runner in the stable.

      Which may be a bit jarring as XI is quite a different experience, but. :V

    • Ferrick

      people STILL ask this? And for that matter, yes, yes they do

    • Flandre Scarlet

      People still play it, but it’s mostly people who have been playing it. XI has been trying a lot to get new players in, but as someone who recently tried starting up brand new in XI, oh boy, it’s an uphill battle. Really, really dated. Game didn’t age very well.

    >New alter ego: Maat

    Game’s over; every enemy is destroyed instantly.

  • Ragna

    yay more bag Mog Wardrobe similar FFXIV ARR Armoury Inventory

  • yellowmage

    Huh, a yagudo ally. Interesting. I wonder if there’ll be a quadav alongside whom to adventure before too long; they’ve always been my favourite of the nation-specific beastman tribes.

  • Namuro

    I seriously thought I saw the headline says “Update To Bring New Missions, *Twerk* And More…

  • Mark M

    Sweet! Still haven’t updated the achievements though for the 360! Really love the support SE is giving to 11 !

  • Zack

    Does anyone know the names of the songs played in the trailer? That battle song at around halfway of the video sounds awesome!

  • I’ve been saying since day one to my brother they will add a gunners class, as in the marauders guild on the opposite side there’s a sign with 2 pistols

  • Mikari✘

    Heh, I’m actually thinking about playing this game.
