The Purge is a story mission.

Summary[edit | edit source]

The Purge is the final story mission of the Artemis Path, starting immediately upon the conclusion of 16 / 16. The mission tasks the player with finding a way to the final Atlas Interface at the center of the Galaxy.

Initial Description[edit | edit source]

I have faced the Atlas once more. I do not know how to process what I have learned. The Atlas is everywhere because we are all part of the Atlas. It is a machine, a simulation. We have no meaning beyond it.

But the machine is being destroyed. Something is happening to the Atlas. I can feel it pulling me towards the centre of the galaxy, to some great cleansing...

Walkthrough[edit | edit source]

Race to the Core[edit | edit source]

The player will be tasked with making their way to the final Atlas Interface. Each time the player uses their Starship's Hyperdrive to warp to another system, they will permanently acquire a Glyph. Additionally, special events will occur after specific warps.

If you warp again fast enough you will not advance to the next glyph and thusly be able to get closer to the physical galactic core.

0th Warp[edit | edit source]

Before the player has a chance to perform their first warp, they will be contacted in space by Priest Entity Nada and must board the now-present Space Anomaly. Once inside, the player must speak to both Nada and Specialist Polo concerning the end of The Atlas; after exiting the Space Anomaly, the player must decide whether to pursue The Atlas Path, explore the galaxy, or head for the final interface.

3rd Warp[edit | edit source]

The player will receive a transmission from Apollo in which they will give their thoughts on the end of the Atlas.

6th Warp[edit | edit source]

The player will receive a transmission from Artemis if their soul was uploaded into the Korvax simulation aboard the Space Anomaly. In the conversation the player may realize that what they had considered to be interference before was actually a symptom of the prolonged death of the Atlas.

9th Warp[edit | edit source]

The player will receive a transmission from -null- which will advise the player against continuing toward the final Atlas Interface. However, the player must ignore the advice of -null- and continue onward.

The Final Interface[edit | edit source]

Once the player has received the last glyph (granted after the 16th warp), they must charge and use the marked Portal. As with the first mandated Portal use in the Artemis Path, the player will end up on an Exotic Planet and will have a chance to wander around briefly before they are taken to the final Atlas Interface. The player must use the interface to speak with the Atlas one last time.

(Note: reaching the final Atlas Interface in this manner does count as reaching the centre of the galaxy for the purposes of the Take a Deep Breath and To Live Forever Trophies)

The player must cry out six times in a row in order to start the conversation in earnest; once this is done, the player will be unable to leave the conversation until they have chosen one of two options: Reset Simulation or Refuse the Atlas. Regardless of which option is chosen, the player will gain the Remembrance Blueprint after they make their choice.

Reset Simulation[edit | edit source]

If the player chooses to reset the simulation, they will be given a choice of what kind of galaxy will be created next. The four options are Lush galaxy (green), Harsh galaxy (red), Empty galaxy (blue) and Norm galaxy (teal).

Once the galaxy type has been chosen, the simulation reset will occur, teleporting the player and their current starship to a random planet in the new galaxy and damaging all Technology in the player's Multi-tool and those in the primary (but not technology) inventories of the player's Exosuit and starship. The player will need to board their starship after arrival in the new galaxy in order to conclude the mission.

Once the player has changed galaxies, locations in the previous galaxy will no longer be available to visit unless the player joins the game of someone who is currently in that galaxy.

Refuse the Atlas[edit | edit source]

If the player chooses to refuse the Atlas, they and their starship will be teleported to a random planet in the current galaxy with the starship located around 500 units away, and the mission will conclude immediately. Unlike in previous encounters with the Atlas, the starship's Launch Thruster will remain in working condition, allowing the player to take off immediately.

If the player changes their mind after making the decision, they will need to travel to the galaxy's centre via more conventional means (once the player is at the star system marked by the Galactic Centre objective in the Galaxy Map, they will need to charge their Hyperdrive to 100% in order to make the final jump to the centre).

Rewards[edit | edit source]

Additional information[edit | edit source]

  • The player can warp repeatedly into the system they are currently in, which still counts towards the mission progress.
