We’ve known about the upcoming new story content for Final Fantasy XI for some time now.
It started off as a “new scenario“, was referenced as being “not(…) as large in scale as a mission” and more recently we learned that it would arrive in multiple installments throughout future version updates.
Today, Square Enix launched a special site for the series, The Voracious Resurgence.
Even the smallest of incidents can have ripple effects that alter the course of history. Three individuals of unknown origin have inserted themselves seamlessly into everyday life, their robes murky and their intentions even murkier.
Only a short time passed before small eggs of unknown origin started appearing in all manner of places throughout Vana’diel—eggs whispered of in the oldest Beastmen legends.
It falls to Vana’diel’s finest adventurers to uncover the truth behind this enigmatic phenomenon. Peer beyond the veil of death and unravel the tangled threads of a conspiracy that threatens the very fabric of the world.
Information for Part 1 of the story can now be viewed on the site.
Final Fantasy XI The Voracious Resurgence will be available for free, however players must have Rise of the Zilart, Chains of Promathia, Treasures of Aht Urhgan, Wings of the Goddess and Seekers of Adoulin registered to their account. They must also have completed Rhapsodies of Vana’diel.
Part one of the story is set to go live with a version update later this week on Thursday, August 6.
