In Final Fantasy XI, players undertake multiple adventures through Vana'diel, a complex gaming world with more than 100 areas to explore. The gaming universe contains the award-winning visual content, innovative gameplay and deep storyline that the Final Fantasy series is famous for. The Rise of the Zilart expansion pack expands the storyline and opens up a variety of higher-level skills and abilities.

Final Fantasy XI Treasures of Aht Urhgan for PC will be released on April 20th 2006. As an expansion pack players will need to own an original version of Final Fantasy XI sold separately.
