Ubisoft to distribute PAL Final Fantasy XI

Xbox 360 version of FFXI and PC expansion pack arriving in PAL territories this month.


Ubisoft today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Square Enix to distribute the Xbox 360 version of Final Fantasy XI in Europe and other PAL territories later this month. The deal will also see Ubisoft handling the distribution for the upcoming Treasures of Aht Urhgan PC expansion pack, which is scheduled to arrive in stores around the same time. The Xbox 360 game comes with all of the Treasures of Aht Urhgan content as standard, as well as that from the earlier Chains of Promathia and Rise of the Zilart expansions.

"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 PlayStation 2 and PC gamers in the Final Fantasy universe, thus creating a unique interaction between different platforms."

Since the PlayStation 2 version of Final Fantasy XI was never released in Europe, this will be the first opportunity for European console players to experience the game. For more information on the Xbox 360 game, check out our previous coverage.
