December Final Fantasy XI update to increase level cap once again

Square Enix has announced a free update to its flagship MMORPG, Final Fantasy XI, which might just make you say "World of What-craft: What-aclysm?" Fine, nobody would ever say that under any circumstances, but the fact remains: This patch has a lot to offer the game's faithful player base.

The patch's most noteworthy change is that it will increase the levels cap from 85 to 90, and will add a whole slew of new spells and other abilities which players can unlock while moving up these new ranks. There will also be some new obtainable powers for Blue Mages, and new traits for most of the game's other magic users. Check out all the additions on the game's official blog.
