    Rhapsodies of Vana'diel

    The Final Main Scenario
    The first chapter in FINAL FANTASY XI's final main scenario, Rhapsodies of Vana'diel, will be implemented in the May 2015 version update.
    This scenario will serve to tie together fourteen years of FINAL FANTASY XI, and we aim for it serve as the ultimate compilation of all we have accomplished to date, with major characters from throughout the game's history making appearances--a feat that only a game as storied as FINAL FANTASY XI can offer.

    The scenario will consist of three separate chapters, debuting in the May, August, and November version updates, respectively.
    Coming along with the scenario are exciting new battle content, never-before-seen rewards, and a variety of other additions to engage players of all different stripes.
    We plan for this to be a grand conclusion to the FINAL FANTASY series' first MMORPG--and indeed, the first console MMORPG--in a way that will be recorded in the annals of the genre's history.

    FINAL FANTASY XI's major version updates will conclude with the implementation of the final chapter of Rhapsodies of Vana'diel, but there will continue to be minor version updates that address bugs and contain various balance adjustments.

    Could they be thinking of a FFXI version of the ME3 Citadel DLC?

    Is this the real life? Or Final Fantasy?

    Hopefully Aldo can finally meet his sister, and other plot threads left unopen can be closed.

    Oh my god, this. Fuck ACP! Made no goddamn sense, and the end retconned itself. Pretty much every other bit of FFXI lore fits like a puzzle, but then you have this lincoln log that somehow got mixed in with the puzzle pieces. It's not even on the same level, which is why I avoid calling it "the worst story of FFXI". Every other story is decent to amazing, and then we just have one outlier turd.

    Wonder who the lady in the middle will turn out to be.
    New character? Avatar of the Mothercrystal? Altana herself?

    Altana not making an appearance is probably the only way this could disappoint me.

    Could be Altana in a more human-like form. The halo behind her is a huge call to that style.

    Or maybe Siren?

    More importantly, who is that creepy face at the top?

    It's half shadow Lord, half Raogrimm, they're one and the same after all

    I wouldn't mind if Altana continues to be an unseen presence if we get to visit the ruins of Tavnazia instead.

    Every part of me hopes I get to visit the ruins of Tavnazia... shits been a dream of mine since I saw the opening Cutscene and glimpsed it from Blueblade Fell.

    Agreed, Tav ruins HAS to be in this in some way. We've been clamoring for it for over a decade!

    I haven't actively played XI in over two years since most of my friends quit but I'm dying to do SoA and now go through this content. Even though they aren't saying it, this is totally the beginning of the end for XI. I'm sure the next updates are going to be more server merges. :/
