FFXI 360 date, new PC expansion

The latter included in 360 version.

Square Enix is planning to bring Treasures of Aht Urhgan, the third expansion pack for PC MMO Final Fantasy XI and bane of spellcheckers everywhere, to Europe and other PAL places on April 20th, just two days after its American release. And yes, that is a Thursday and not a Friday. What's more, Final Fantasy XI for Xbox 360 will launch on the same day, April 20th, in both Europe and Japan.

FFXI's already had two expansions (Rise of the Zilart and Chains of Promathia), and this third one deals with the legendary "Aht Urhgan Empire", introduces new jobs (including Blue Mage and Corsair) and adds some new areas and monsters (including the Mamool Ja tribe of beastmen).

It's also worth noting that the Xbox 360 version isn't just FFXI but FFXI including all three expansion packs - even this Aht Urhgan spelling catastrophe - and requires the hard disk drive to play. We'll bring you our thoughts on the 360 port as soon as poss.
