It's time for the events to start rolling in for Halloween, always a favorite holiday for MMOs to celebrate. Final Fantasy XI
has been running its own ghoulish take on the occasion for many years now
, and the most recent iteration promises to be more of the same. This year's harvest festival has just been announced
, complete with the requisite piece of fiction to help ground the holiday in the lore of Vana'diel and its inhabitants.
Running from October 19th to November 2nd, this year's festival promises to contain many of the elements seen in years past, such as trick-or-treating and the joy of setting up decorations. Longtime veterans will remember that this event also lets you obtain the desirable Treat Staff II
as well as a number of cosmetic items, which makes for a fun experience all around. Take a look at the official announcement
, and get ready for another October of rather meddlesome spirits in Final Fantasy XI.
