Ubisoft has announced it will distribute Final Fantasy XI for the Xbox 360 in Australia. Ubisoft will also distribute the Windows expansion pack Final Fantasy XI: Treasures of Aht Urhgan. Both games will hit stores in April 2006.
Final Fantasy XI XI is a massively multiplayer online role playing game (MMORPG), taking place in the renowned world of Vana'diel.
"Ubisoft is thrilled to offer the Xbox 360 its first MMORPG" said Alain Corre Executive Director for EMEA territories at Ubisoft. "FINAL FANTASY XI is a gorgeous game with a true innovative feature: Xbox 360 players can join Playstation2 and PC gamers in the FINAL FANTASY universe, thus creating a unique interaction between different platforms."
Players will create unique characters that will evolve within Vana'diel -- a world once bound by a peaceful alliance between nations, but now threatened by an ever growing evil force. They will experience missions, quests, and battles either by themselves or by joining up with other party members to form powerful alliances as they explore the incredibly vast environments that make up Vana'diel.
