Final Fantasy XI

These are images from FFXI's November update, which concludes the Rhapsodies of Vana’diel saga. "The adventure that began with Iroha in May shifts to the sacred island of Reisenjima," Square Enix says, "where the battle for the future of Vana’diel will ensue. Speaking of scenarios, we will also be concluding the Vegetable Vegetable Revolution questline from Seekers of Adoulin."

Vegetable Vegetable Revolution.

There are a bunch of other additions, including new monsters and weapons, as explained in detail in this forum post. The November update is live now, and you can see the patch in action in its accompanying trailer, below.

His favourite game worlds—Stalker, Dark Souls, Thief—have an atmosphere you could wallop with a blackjack. He enjoys horror, adventure, puzzle games and RPGs, and played the Japanese version of Final Fantasy VIII with a translated script he printed off from the internet. Tom has been writing about free games for PC Gamer since 2012. If he were packing for a desert island, he’d take his giant Columbo boxset and a laptop stuffed with PuzzleScript games.
