On FreeBSD 11.0-RC3 I'm not able to set console fonts anymore while I was able to do so on 10.3 with vt driver.
# vidcontrol -f vgarom-8x14 - works fine on FreeBSD 10.3 and changes the fonts
# vidcontrol -f vgarom-8x14 - doesn't work on FreeBSD 11.0-RC3
PIO_VFONT: Operation not supported
vidcontrol: failed to load font "vgarom-8x14": Operation not supported
I'm experimenting inside VirtualBox 5.0.0
Also for some reason FreeBSD 10.3 uses higher console resolution, while 11.0-RC3 uses only test mode:
# dmesg | grep VT - FreeBSD 10.3
VT(vga): resolution 640x480
# dmesg | grep VT - FreeBSD 11.0-RC3
VT(vga): text 80x25
Also for some reason FreeBSD 10.3 uses terminus like console font by default, while 11.0-RC3 uses font vga 8x16 or resembling.
Following options have been set inside GENERIC file both for FreeBSD 10.3 and FreeBSD 11.0-RC3:
#device vga # VGA video card driver
#options VESA # Add support for VESA BIOS Extensions (VBE)
#device splash # Splash screen and screen saver support
# syscons is the default console driver, resembling an SCO console
#options SC_PIXEL_MODE # add support for the raster text mode
# vt is the new video console driver
device agp # support several AGP chipsets
On FreeBSD 11.0-Release I'm not to set console fonts too ...

I solved the problem:
echo "hw.vga.textmode=0" >> /boot/loader.conf
The issue is solved.
