Square Enix has sent six new screenshots of Final Fantasy XI: Wings of the Goddess to worldwide famous Final Fantasy XI fansite Allakhazam.com. In addition, the company has also revealed new information on the storyline of the expansion:
This is the collective term given to the series of battles and border skirmishes waged in the Quon and Mindartian theaters during the Crystal War.
All those wishing to serve would enlist with one of the allied army's three main forces--the Kingdom of San d'Oria, the Republic of Bastok, or the Federation of Windurst--to combat the ever-advancing beastmen confederate comprising the Quon Host of the Orcish Empire, the Quadav Shieldwarriors, the Yagudo Theomilitary, and the Shadowlord's Dark Kindred. However, a volunteer's duties were not always limited to direct engagement with the enemy. Campaign endeavors also extended to tasks such as marches, supply runs, entrenchment and fortification, and cooperative maneuvers with allied forces.
It would not be an exaggeration to say it was through a delicate balance of military prowess and comprehensive strategy that these campaigns were ultimately able to lead the allies to victory.
