View Full Version : Final Fantasy XI: Seekers of Adoulin

A recently registered trademark, and lots of new zones found from dat minng the latest test server update show one thing.

At Vanafest over the next few days, a new expansion of Final Fantasy XI named Seekers of Adoulin will be announced.

wilddragonchase.blogspot.sg/2012/06/ffxi... (http://wilddragonchase.blogspot.sg/2012/06/ffxi-bgblog-mystery-of-rom9.html)

My question is, why? Love FF11, but FF14 has shown so much potential and its great that they're putting so much into it. It is really getting a lot of positive attention now and I think most of us are looking to 2.0.

And I should stress I'm not against this, but it seems like an odd decision. Its been 4 years since we last had a proper expansion, just Abyssea and a few DLC add-ons.

The title Seekers of Adoulin references a town mentioned by a few NPCs in the Wings of the Goddess era. It supposedly has a strong Dragoon presence, a library that rivals Windursts, and strong relations with San d'Oria, being just to the west. I also read somewhere that the few Adoulian items we have seen have a native american feel to them. The areas that have been found seem to have a tropical vibe, althoug it is VERY difficult to say as the textures used are just placeholders.

I'm very excited, watch this space, expect to see something over the next couple of days. Oh and we already know we're getting a new UI, so thats something else to look forward to.

They said they were going to continue supporting 2 FF MMO's, just keeping XI energized for the people that still are playing that one.





XIV 2.0 looks like it will top it, but not everyone will move.


As long as they can continue to support 2 MMO's as well as people hope when XIV 2.0 releases, I'd say let them release w/e they want for XI.


EQ still got expansions long after EQ2 released.





If this is a new expansion/add-on, I'd say it's definitely the last, but XIV does have a lot of potential with 2.0.

22nd Jun 2012, 21:33
Yep, confirmed for a 2013 release, which will be after XIV 2.0/PS3 release, but will I juggle 2 MMO's?
Or 3 even with DQX? Gah..





Anyways, completely new areas, new jobs (Geomancer finally?) new areas to HELM, specifically the fifth expansion pack, and also seeing a PS2 release since many people still play on that. (as did I)

Geomancer is indeed one of the new jobs, awesome.





Also behemoth sized bees, new beastmen, plantoid monsters and fun happy times.

Is there any reason why a PS2 version is not being released in NA and EU and only in Japan?
Yes, I know the PS2 is all but dead here, but contrary to popular belief there are people in NA that still play FFXI on PS2.

I for one was one of them, and was considering a return back with this new expansion, but not if I can't get it.
My PC is not able to handle the game, and I won't buy a 360 just to be able to play XI on it.

I have all my discs from FFXI, including Rise of the Zilart, Chains of Promathia, Treasures of Aht Urhgan and Wings of the Goddess and I am a bit miffed there does not appear to be a PS2 release for the new expansion outside of Japan.

I mean I get what you're doing, but either stop supporting the PS2 version all together, or release the expansion on PS2 in NA as well, given I know people who would love to return as well that played on the PS2, or people who still play on PS2 in North America and won't be able to get the expansion, which quite frankly sucks.

I'm very upset with Square Enix for not at LEAST making FF11 available for the PS3. Instead, they make ANOTHER mmorpg, and on top of that, give it a place in the numbered series. I've been playing FF11 for the PS2 for about 8 1/2 years now. I've spent over $2,000 on this game, and this is the thanks I get. I know I'm not alone here.


I'm a very, very patient man. But, Square Enix sure is testing me. It's just been one step forward, two steps back over the last decade from my point of view. Over the last 22 1/2 years, the 1st 10 were great for me, but the last 12 1/2 years have been up and down. It feels like the company is trying to push me into retirement. lol I'm only 36-yrs-old. I have a lot of gaming years left.

yeah i know what you mean


I'm still waiting for a second sequel to Chrono Trigger
I miss the days when Squaresoft was one of the best rpg developers

even Capcom, Konami and Sega are going downhill
I'm following Atlus, Aksys and Xseed now


At least they are trying to keep the PSP alive in NA
Hakuoki Warriors of the Shinsengumi comes out in February

Atlus is continuously bringing NA games that for years have been Japan only like
Shin Megami Tensei Devil Summoner Soul Hackers which is coming out for 3DS April 2013
Shin Megami Tensei Persona 2 Innocent Sin was released over here for PSP

Im sure this is not that relevant, but if you have a backwards compatible ps3 you could play it on ps3... ik this doesnt upgrade the graphics, nor does it address the issue that seekers of adoulin is most likely not coming to ps2... they need to just make it available for the ps3... its on the xbox 360, for goodness sakes!

I understand what you're saying, but that part of my post was a gripe about Square Enix in general. I just don't like a lot of their decisions with the FF series since FF10. Also, I just own a small laptop. I don't have a gaming PC. I DO own an XBox 360, but I've tried FF11 on it and it runs very slow at times. FF11 runs better on my old fat backwards-compatible PS3 than on my XBox 360.

Hello guys, first post ><
I purchased the Seekers expansion yesterday and the only download link I get is broken. Says-


The webpage at wgtot26.digitalriver.com/wgt/9B5A4FCEF11... (http://wgtot26.digitalriver.com/wgt/9B5A4FCEF11DA80C/80570FAC9FB5A3E51686BE24A7F3920F0E6E0CE81B08698CA2A119F3E3360AE652D62F831797F892A06D708A39E6226F684BF8CDFF0FD279F7BCDCED21E2F27459AD50B1F41E622D/sqenixus/Final_Fantasy_XI_Seekers_of_Adoulin_Setup.exe) might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address.
Error 103 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_ABORTED): Unknown error.

I tried to right click and "save as" but it won't do anything. Sometimes I click the link and it asks where I want to save it, click save and the download box just says it can't be downloaded.

So I tried to contact SE support. Fill out the e-mail support thing, copy the dxdiag exactly as it says and it keeps saying there's an error with the dxdiag box. So I can't get past that to support from SE....

Any ideas/help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

No judge (not even the ones from Ivalice!) would side with you, because frankly these decisions have absolutely nothing to do with 'racism' and whatnot; they're purely business decisions.





Months before SoA was released, SE put out a poll to find out what platforms their customers were playing on. Apparently not enough outside of Japan responded that they would utilize the PS2 to make it worthwhile to spend the resources to create and release the PS2 version anywhere else. You might argue that since they already have the majority of the localization done for XBox and PC, that a PS2 release wouldn't cost them much and should still be done, but there's the thing: it STILL COSTS. They would have to pay Sony for licensing for each region; they would have to pay the programmers to convert the localized text into code; they would have to pay for shipping & distribution (because full expansions for PS2 CANNOT be digitally distributed), and the market to make this venture profitable simply isn't there.


The same argument PLUS the fact that they would have to pay a localization team to translate the whole thing is why many of the more 'niche' games you see in Japan never make it outside of the country.


You have to remember that SE is first and foremost, a business--and businesses that cannot profit cannot survive. Already they've had record losses this past year--enough to force them into massively restructuring the entire corporation with layoffs left and right.
