Final Fantasy XI Update Plans

Square announced a future updates outline for its online RPG, Final Fantasy XI. Starting next month, the company aims to upgrade the game once a month and additionally hold special events at the same time. Among the upcoming updates is a change in the level cap. Until now the highest level a character was allowed to reach was 50. In a first step, the level cap will be set at 55 before players will be allowed to reach level 60 in November. Following this update, the bans on four users who dared to exceed the level 50 mark prior to the update will be lifted. Players who manage to defeat high-level monsters like Behemoths will be rewarded with super items. Difficult monsters and special items will be added to dungeons. Players whose level exceeds 30 will be able to enjoy new race-specific equipment. In the Bastok region, new mines will be available for discovery, while in Santoria and Windust the farming industry will be introduced. Further updates involve character stats, effects of levelling up and spells.

Available in Japan since May 16th, Final Fantasy XI has sold about 120,000 copies to date. A US version has yet to be officially announced by Square EA LLC.
