Brief Campaign Overview
5 Missions. Reduced to 4 on New Game+ as the intro is removed. Also, you may choose to skip the tutorial deployment completely on a new game, but that means losing about 130 RP (on Ironman) and 400-500k score.
4 Missions. 2 different choices for your first mission. Your choice influences the mission terrain and turn goal in the third mission. Completing this mission strand unlocks the Rychart Prime mission strand.
5 Missions with 2 optional missions (Kaldun). After completing mission 1, you have your only chance to attempt the two optional missions; you can't attempt them later on as you won't return to the desert command bunker.
If you do choose to go to Kaldun: Your choice of finishing location when breaching the factory entrance dictates whether you start at the Northern or Southern deployment zone. Whilst this does not alter the mission, it does alter you mission title in the battle records. Upon completion you will return to the desert command bunker and carry on to Drayan.
4 Missions. Two choices for mission 1 that will affect mission 4. This mission strand can be done second, third or fourth depending on the player's choice. Probably best to do it second, because that leaves more time to prepare for Rychart Prime which is harder.
5 Missions. Requires both Ferarai Lance and Rychart Prime be completed to access. No special criteria.
4 Missions. Final mission has an auto fail criteria linked to number of turns taken.
4 Missions. Protect unarmed citizens/ human soldiers with rifles is a common occurrence. Caution, the human soldiers are weak and die quickly, even on easy mode. Also, these missions are considerably harder than anything before them.
5 Missions. Devoid of secondary objectives, increase in number of enemy with ranged attacks. Hard missions.
If you finish these missions, then you have completed the campaign. You may still continue playing by starting a new game with your current squad with all XP you've earned and skills you've unlocked. This is called New Game+ and it is useful to unlock achievements. Alternatively, you may continue with the epilogue after which New Game+ will still be an option. Having won New Game+, there will be a New Game++ option.
Stratos Space Station (Epilogue)
5 Missions. Choice of two differing missions for the fourth mission (Command Centre or Research Hall). Your choice must be made before the mission completion screen appears in the third mission. Which you choose influences the reward balance (mainly XP or RP) for the fourth mission and the difficulty of final mission, as only one will remove all the fortified machine gun turrets.
Below is every mission title, [turn goal], minimum XP & RP reward for completion on easy difficulty, number of secondary objectives present and if any humans must be escorted to safety. Where a) and b) are listed, you may only attempt one mission variant. If this occurs twice in a mission set, you will do both A's or both B's, e.g. Choosing Galantia Cross mission 1a means mission 3a will also be played.
Guidance on where to find all secondary objective locations has been kept separate to avoid spoilers. The missions are also linked to detailed walkthroughs where available.
Can be bypassed for your first play through, if this your second time starting from scratch.
