FFXI disc expansion not patch
And it’s subtitled Vision of Ziraat - catchy!
Final Fantasy XI Ziraat no Gen'ei, or Vision of Ziraat, is the name of the official FFXI expansion due out in Japan sometime soon. The recently announced expansion will include plenty of cosmetic changes but also adds at least one new character class (the summoner), whose arsenal of summoned monsters includes Ifrit and Carbuncle, and potentially more. According to a report on IGN (by way of Dengeki Online), new areas include a desert, a volcanic island covered in jungle and a fishing village populated by the Mithra race.
It is not yet clear if the expansion will be available for the PC version of the game (which, at this rate, is the only one European gamers are likely to get their hands on), but as soon as we hear anything we'll let you know.
