Main article: Plot summary of Xenoblade Chronicles 2

Rex is salvaging for treasure in the Cloud Sea. When he wants to trade today's loot for money in Argentum Trade Guild, he gets called to Bana. He introduced him to Malos, Jin and Nia and offers him 100,000G in advance for a salvaging job on an Ancient Ship sunken deep below the Cloud Sea. He accepts and makes necessary preparations. After travelling to the site with the C.S.E.V. Maelstrom and lifting the ship above the surface, he ventures in together with Malos, Jin and Nia. They ask him to open a sealed door. Behind it, he finds a girl in a capsule, seemingly unconscious, together with a red sword. Rex is about to stretch his hand out to that sword, but Malos tells him to not get any closer. After Rex accidentally touches it anyway, Jin rushes to him and stabs him in the back. He falls dead and finds himself in a place where that girl is standing next to a lonely tree. Rex approaches her and she tells him that she is a Blade called Pyra and that this place is Elysium as she remembers it in her dreams. Pyra revives him by giving him half of her life force after he promises her to bring her to Elysium in the real world. They attack Malos on the deck of the Ancient Ship and escape together with Nia, who was upset about the actions of Malos and Jin, and her blade Dromarch, on the back of the Titan Azurda that Rex lives on.

In other words, yes we know it's unfinished; we just didn't want to leave it blank in the meantime. You can help complete it.
The editor who added this tag elaborates: Doesn't go into enough detail


Unlike previous games in the series, only three Driver Arts are available to the player. However, up to three Blades can be equipped to each Driver. This results in up to nine different arts available to the player during battles, in addition to special attacks that may trigger a Blade Combo.


The game mostly takes place on multiple smaller Titans like Gormott or Uraya. Quests can be accepted from NPCs that involve things like collecting items, defeating enemies, or talking to other NPCs. Another feature is the Blade's Affinity Charts. By meeting certain requirements, their skills can be leveled up. Blades can also be sent on Merc Missions that run passively in the background.

Downloadable Content[edit]

Japanese-Voice Pack[edit]

On the same day Xenoblade Chronicles 2 released, a free downloadable content was released that allows players to choose to play through the game with the Japanese voices. This DLC is exclusive to the international release of the game; there is no such DLC that adds English voices to the Japanese and Chinese version.
