Final Fantasy XI Celebrates 11th Anniversary by Giving Free Expansions, Goodies

on August 9, 2013 2:54 AM

Square Enix just announced that, as part for the celebrations for Final Fantasy XI‘s 11th anniversary, players will receive quite a lot of goodies with the “Abyssea and Atma Extravaganza” event.

First of all, everyone will be able to unlock for free the three mini-expansions Vision of Abyssea, Scars of Abyssea, and Heroes of Abyssea during the campaign period between August the 8th and October the 11th.

In order to redeem the freebies you have to go to the Square Enix account management website and use the “purchase” option under the “registration codes” section, and then select Crysta as the payment option. They’ll be unlocked and you won’t be charged (you can find the detailed process here if you’re lost).

In addition to that, every player will be granted a nice package of items to help him in his travels through Abyssea:

  • Eleven of the most popular Atma – these enhancements allow users to strengthen their characters in a variety of ways while they journey within Abyssea
  • One Lunar Abyssite – essential for equipping and using atma.  And for seasoned veterans that already possess the lunar abyssite, 100,000 cruor is offered as an alternative.
  • 100,000 Cruor – Cruor is a red, naturally-occurring mineral found in Abyssea, as well as the standard currency of the realm. It can be exchanged for maps and other sundries, warp point activation, and special boons.
  • Increase to Initial Traverser Stone Stocks – Magic Traverser stones enable travel within Abyssea, and each stone enables its bearer to stay within the world for thirty minutes.

Looks like Square Enix is providing a quite nostalgic alternative for those waiting for the open beta of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn.
