Time travel storylines are one of the most complicated things that can be done in any sort of fiction, even more so in MMOs. But Final Fantasy XI
has been working hard at keeping the story of Wings of the Goddess
personal and engaging, and players have responded positively to the experience as a whole. Still, all good things come to an end, and the expansion storyline will be coming to a close with the September version update
The small preview of the upcoming conclusion
hints at what might be around the corner for the adventurers who have braved the time-ruining antics of the Spitewardens
and Atomos. Lilith
's appearance marks further wrinkles in the already-convoluted timestream, with the possibility of her future inching ever closer for all of Vana'diel. If you've been following the story from the beginning, it promises to be a very emotional finale, and Final Fantasy XI
players will be able to enjoy it starting next month.
