Today is a good way to try out a few new adventures in Final Fantasy XI (FFXI) if you haven’t already. Square Enix today announced plans to celebrate the MMORPG’s 11th anniversary by giving away three of its key add-ons (Vision of Abyssea, Scars of Abyssea and Heroes of Abyssea) to players for free. The free downloads are only available for a limited time, so you may want to hurry.

In addition to the free content, Square Enix is also offering players a new starter package filled with a number of in-game items to help in getting started. The package includes 11 of the most popular Atma enhancements, one Lunar Abyssite needed for equipping Atma or 100,000 Cruor currency if you already have it as an alternative, 100,000 Cruor as well, and an increase to initial Traverser Stone Stocks to aid in travel around Abyssea.

You can learn more about the celebration campaign on the FFXI website.


“Abyssea and Atma Axtravaganza Campaign” Offers Free Battle Area Add-ons and Bonuses

LOS ANGELES (August 8, 2013) – Square Enix, Inc., the publisher of SQUARE ENIX® interactive entertainment products in the Americas, announced today the limited-time, free download of three major battle area add-ons for FINAL FANTASY® XI.

As part of the campaign, the three add-ons (“Vision of Abyssea®,” “Scars of Abyssea®” and “Heroes of Abyssea®”) are available for free to users that have not tried out this exciting high-level content. Users wishing to dive into the Abyssea add-ons will need to have registered and installed the “Rise of the Zilart®” and “Wings of the Goddess®” expansion packs, as well as reached level 30 in at least one job.

To aid players who have yet to set foot into the lands of Abyssea, Square Enix is also offering a starter package filled with in-game goodies. Some of the in-game giveaways include:

·         Eleven of the most popular Atma – these enhancements allow users to strengthen their characters in a variety of ways while they journey within Abyssea

·         One Lunar Abyssite – essential for equipping and using atma.  And for seasoned veterans that already possess the lunar abyssite, 100,000 cruor is offered as an alternative.

·         100,000 Cruor - Cruor is a red, naturally-occurring mineral found in Abyssea, as well as the standard currency of the realm. It can be exchanged for maps and other sundries, warp point activation, and special boons.

·         Increase to Initial Traverser Stone Stocks – Magic Traverser stones enable travel within Abyssea, and each stone enables its bearer to stay within the world for thirty minutes.
