In Final Fantasy XI, players will undertake multiple adventures through vast environments in the world of "Vana'diel" which has more than 100 areas to explore, including mountains, forests, ice plains, deserts, oceans, rivers, castles and dungeons. Players travel through these areas using various modes of transportation including Chocobos, boats and airships. Incorporating time and climate changes, ranging from daytime to evening, blazing sunshine to dense fog and thunderstorms to deep snow, Vana'diel's persistent world is composed of three unique nations: the Republic of Bastok, known for Industry and Might; The Kingdom of San d'Oria, called "A City Within A Fortress" and the Federation of Windurst, founded on "The Fruits of Knowledge". While these nations enjoy a friendly relationship on the surface, territorial expansion is a constant and natural desire for all nation leaders, causing an underlying antagonistic tone. Players must choose one of these nations as their home and carry out quests and missions not only to benefit their nation but also uncover the past, present and future of Vana'diel.

The game allows players to create an alter ego who will exist on the world of Vana'diel, choosing from a variety of races, facial features, hairstyles and colours. They will be able to play at their own pace and form parties by utilizing the various communication tools that have been incorporated into Final Fantasy XI, including easy-to-use chat and messaging systems. Players will become immersed in an expansive, original story that not only includes combating for their nation, but also non-battle related skills such as alchemy, leatherworking, jewel crafting and fishing. While players may start out on their own, as they advance, they will realize the advantages and fun-factor in joining parties. Communication and interaction with other characters and the environment is key as gamers create a new fate for the world of Vana'diel.
