DescriptionFinal Fantasy XI Online
is an MMORPG which is played in the persistent medieval world of Vana'diel.
Create your own character by choosing your race, gender, face, body size and job. The five unique races are: Hume, Elvaan, Tarutaru, Mithra, and Galka.
Beginning jobs include: Warrior, Monk, Thief, White Mage, Black Mage and Red Mage. More jobs, such as Bard, Paladin, Beastmaster or Ranger, become available after certain quests are completed. Players can change their job at any time and can eventually add a "support" job.

Although wildly popular in the US (with more than 500,000 subscribers as of early 2004), the game was less so in Japan. Square-Enix made a public claim that unless they could get 200,000 Japanese players to sign up and play the game, it would not be exported to the US due to financial failure. The release of the PS2 version shot up sales enough for US players to get the game.
