Square Enix has said that it will release Final Fantasy XI: 2008 Edition
in Europe on May 23rd. The game will be available for Xbox 360 and PC.
If you're scratching your head and wondering what you get in the 2008 edition that you didn't get in the original Xbox 360 release, it's basically the latest expansion - Wings of the Goddess
- which was released last year.
Also included will be the three expansion packs bundled in with the original 360 release
; Rise of the Zilart
; Chains of Promathia
and Treasures of Aht Urghan
John Yamamoto, president and chief executive officer of Square Enix, uttered, "The world of Final Fantasy XI
continues to grow with both new content and new players. Final Fantasy XI 2008 Edition
allows interested players to join the adventure with the bonus of all the expansion pack content. I hope many more players enjoy and experience the exciting world of Vana'diel and all that Final Fantasy XI
has to offer." It's a lovely sentiment, we're sure you'll agree.
