This is not a sponsored post. I just found out about an interesting indie project to revive the classic MMORP Final Fantasy XI. While I never got the chance to play the game back in the day, I am excited to try it out this weekend.
HorizonXI is spearheaded by a collection of passionate fans who want to bring their favorite game to a modern audience. It is important to note that everyone working on this project is a volunteer, and while I am sure they have done a wonderful job, don’t expect it to be perfect. This is a passion project that I am sure will improve as it gets more love and attention.
Their latest Dev Blog has me excited for what is to come. They have attempted to fix a lot of the issues that were present in the original. There are bug fixes, quality-of-life changes, and some new features that I’m excited about are the addition of a hardcore mode. Earn unique cosmetics as you try to reach level 75 without dying. Can you manage? The Dev blog goes into much more depth, and it is definitely worth the watch. Go check it out and show them some love.
While you wait for the launch, head over to their website and register now. You can also create a character so that you are ready from the start. If you have any questions, they have a lively discord you can join.
This game will be free to play, so you have nothing to lose. If you want to relive some Final Fantasy XI nostalgia or want to experience some that you missed, head over to Horizon XI. I will be doing my best to get into the game this weekend, and I will be back with my first impressions. As with MMO, I am sure the servers will be overloaded, so please be patient. I hope to see you there! Don’t forget to join their Discord.
