Part One of Final Fantasy XI's new storyline coming August 6th - New website and artwork revealed

The Voracious Resurgence, a brand-new storyline update coming to Final Fantasy XI, is a mere few days away from release. Beginning August 6th, players will be able to embark on a brand new storyline to uncover the mystery behind the sudden appearance of strange eggs throughout Vana’diel–eggs whispered in the oldest of Beastmen legends.

“It falls to Vana’diel’s finest adventurers to uncover the truth behind this enigmatic phenomenon. Peer beyond the veil of death and unravel the tangled threads of a conspiracy that threatens the very fabric of the world.”

The August 6th update will see the beginning of the story unfold, with Beastmen clad in blackened garb infiltrating the streets of Bastok in search of the Galkan child Raebrimm. According to Producer Akihiko Matsui, the story is planned to be released gradually over the span of multiple version updates.

In preparation for this content update, a brand-new website has been launched, which reveals small snippets of the story alongside some character screenshots. There are also several greyed out icons, likely placed to house more storyline information in future releases.

Additionally, lovely new artwork by Akihiro Yamada was also released and can be seen below.

Final Fantasy XI is available now on Windows PC.
