TGS: Square Enix Announces New FFXI Expansion
09.16.05 - 11:48 AM
Square Enix debuted the third expansion of its popular MMORPG Final Fantasy XI at Tokyo Game Show today. Titled Treasures of Aht Urhgan, the new expansion pack was only demonstrated through a short trailer. Treasures of Aht Urhgan will add several new areas (a massive phantom ship, a gloomy swamp area, a grassland area with beautiful autumn leaves), a new storyline, new sea routes and the new Blue Mage job. This new job comes with an oriental dress and, of course, Blue Magic. When a monster uses a particular attack against a Blue Mage, he or she will be able to learn said attack and afterwards use it just like a standard magic spell. Square Enix also confirmed that Treasures of Aht Urhgan is directed by map planner Kouichi Ogawa.
Final Fantasy XI: Treasures of Aht Urhgan has yet to receive an official release date.
