About the Game
Final Fantasy XI is the first MMORPG capable of simultaneous multiplayer action across three different platforms, allowing players worldwide to combine forces on Windows, PlayStation 2 (U.S. and Japan only) and Xbox 360. Final Fantasy XI players from all over the world can unite in one gaming universe in a community of more than 500,000 players, and 1.7 million characters.
In Final Fantasy XI players will create unique characters that will evolve within Vana’diel – a world once bound by a peaceful alliance between nations, but now threatened by an ever growing evil force. They will experience missions, quests, and battles either by themselves or by joining up with other party members to form powerful alliances as they explore the incredibly vast environments that make up Vana’diel.
