With the Seekers of Adoulin expansion out during its eleventh year of lifetime Final Fantasy XI left its mark not only as the most profitable Final Fantasy game of all time, but also as one of the most successful and long lasting MMORPGs of the history of the genre.
Considering that success there’s no reason why Square Enix wouldn’t actively seek new users, and that’s why the Final Fantasy XI: Ultimate Collection Seekers Edition was released, including the original game and all its expansions and add-ons for $39.99.
Today they also released a trailer to promote the package, basically showing off one of the most prominent features that brought the game to be one of the most addictive MMOs in the market: the job system. Hard to run out of content when you have 22 classes (or more precisely Jobs) to level up all on the same character. Sure, you’ll have to repeat some stuff (and some of it you’ll have to repeat a lot), but Final Fantasy XI players never seemed to mind.
You can check out the trailer below, and see if it convinces you to give this piece of MMORPG history a try. I’m feeling the pull to go back to it myself, so I wouldn’t be surprised.
