Final Fantasy XI Abyssea Edition incoming

All MMO's content bundled together.

Square Enix has just announced Final Fantasy XI Ultimate Collection Abyssea Edition – a PC download that bundles its 2003 MMO and all associated content into a single purchase.

It's available for download on 16th May from Steam, Nexway and Metaboli.

As well as the core game, you'll get all four expansions: Rise of the Zilart, Chains of Promathia, Treasures of Aht Urhgan and Wings of the Goddess.

All add-on scenarios are included too, namely, A Crystalline Prophecy – Ode of Life Bestowing, A Moogle Kupo d'Etat – Evil in Small Doses, and A Shantotto Ascension – The Legend Torn, Her Empire Born.

Not only that but all additional battle areas are lumped in: Vision of Abyssea, Scars of Abyssea and Heroes of Abyssea.

Finally, all downloads come with a new in-game item called the Destrier Beret, which is apparently loaded with bonuses to help new players get started.

Final Fantasy XI Online originally launched on PC and PlayStation 2 back in 2003, with an Xbox 360 version following in 2006. Eurogamer's Rob Fahey dubbed it a "a beautiful, intriguing, mysterious and captivating experience" in his recent retrospective.
