Return To Vana'diel With The FFXI Ultimate Collection

6520.jpg

To celebrate nine years of adventuring in Vana'diel, Square Enix announced today that they will be releasing the Final Fantasy XI Ultimate Collection Abyssea Edition on May 16. The MMORPG will be released for download in North America, Japan and Europe for Windows-based PCs from select digital distributors.

The Ultimate Collection Abyssea Edition will include all four expansion packs for FFXI, plus all the add-on scenarios (A Crystalline Prophecy - Ode of Life Bestowing, A Moogle Kupo d'Etat - Evil in Small Doses and A Shantotto Ascension - The Legend Torn, Her Empire Born) They're also throwing in the add-on battle areas introduced in 2010's Vision of Abyssea, Scars of Abyssea and Heroes of Abyssea.

Plus, as a added little bonus, the collection will include the Destrier Beret, an in-game item loaded with bonuses to help newbies get started in Vana'diel. Of course, if you've already purchased some of this content, it may not seem like there's much of a draw, but the Ultimate Collection only costs $19.99, which seems like kind of a steal. (Of course, being an MMORPG, there's still that monthly charge...)

I know that once I log in I'm going to be really frustrated with the low quality graphics and the clunky UI.

Played it for a year and a half. It'd be much easier on a PC than a PS2, but playing this game also necessitates waiting for party members at a minimum of 30-45 minutes.

Parties are not entirely essential anymore with the introduction of Fields of Valor. Although they are much more fun when grouped with people. PC is much more fun/manageable to play on than the PS2 version. Graphics can be boosted on the PC version if you're computer registry edit savvy. The games various story lines are great.

And girls who like girls who like rumble packs!
