PlayOnline: Sep 2004 Announcements - September 7, 2004
Posted by: Cuer - September 7, 2004
From the Developers' Room in PlayOnline (note that the first update has been rescheduled for September 7):

In preparation for the release of FINAL FANTASY XI: Chains of Promathia on September 21, there is a preliminary update scheduled for September 6, from 10:00AM (PDT). There will be no server maintenance accompanying this preliminary update, and its contents will not affect gameplay in any way.

After this preliminary update, a version update for the release of Chains of Promathia is scheduled for September 13, from 10:00AM to 4:00PM (PDT). All of the changes and additions outlined in the July-August Developer's Room announcement will be implemented in this update.

To access the new areas and other features of the Chains of Promathia expansion pack, it will be necessary to first install the contents of the Chains of Promathia expansin pack disc, or the 2004 European All-in-One pack, and then complete the Expanded Services registration process.

There will be a separate update when logging in for the first time following installation of the Chains of Promathia expansion pack disc, or the 2004 European All-in-One pack. Details of the September 13th version update will be announced on the day of the update.

The development team is currently working on additional content to follow up on the release of Chains of Promathia. Details regarding these new features will be announced as they become available.

Never before seen images from Chains of Promathia are scheduled to be shown at the TOKYO GAME SHOW 2004. We'd love to see you there!
