With how quickly MMOs come and go—remember WildStar?—it's strange to think Final Fantasy XI has been chugging along for nearly 14 years.
Nothing lasts forever, of course, and today marks the final installment of narrative content for Square-Enix's long-in-the-tooth MMORPG. If you've been anticipating the end of the Rhapsodies of Vana'diel storyline, it's finally here, meaning you can jump in again and bring yourself back to a time when cell phones folded in half, fast food meals could be Super-Sized, and UGG Boots had only begun their reign of terror.
Seeing as most FFXI players have likely closed down their accounts ages ago, Square-Enix is offering a way for old subscribers to jump back in to see the finale. The page for this event features some pretty specific details, but you can essentially take advantage of this free offer between Friday, November 13 to Tuesday, November 24. Even if Final Fantasy XI ends with a whimper, this event still amounts an extremely kind gesture to those who've sunk years into the game over the past decade-plus.
