Campaign Walkthrough

This is a Campaign Walkthrough for X Rebirth. The Campaign Walkthrough is 100% complete and is based off version 2.0 of the game. When playing through the campaign, stations and zones may be different than what's in Free Play mode so some of the wiki general information may seem incorrect.

Special Notes:

  • If you are looking about the old 100 Energy Cell Issue that was problematic pre 2.0 please go here: 100 Energy Cell Issue
  • If you are using an old save and trying to do the campaign you may run into issues on the Alliance mission.

    • If you leave the system(to do a mission) instead of waiting for the 100 energy cells to be picked up the ship can bug out.
Selling 100 Energy
The only 100% confirmed solution at this point is save just before doing the buy and then just patiently wait for the pickup, go to the next system, talk to the drop off and wait for the drop off. (SPECIAL NOTE: When you are in the sell system make sure that you are selling to that station not another station. For some reason unless the Rahanas is in the same system as you it puts another station for the listing above. See picture to make sure you have the two circles that are highlighted in red shown and selected.) Repeat this until success.

Find Yoolis [Medium]

Prison Break [Medium]

  • Protect: Taranis (2 Achievements given) [Recommend to Quick Save now after the talking stops.]

  • Dock at: Heart of Albion Ship (1 Minute Timer)
    • After you dock the timer may run down to 0:00 and nothing happens. Just as long as the ship you docked at says its jumped its okay to go back to the cockpit. The campaign will continue.

Impound Raid [Medium]

Rebuilding DeVries [Medium]

  • Build: Integrative URV Forge in Glaring Truth
    • Remove the Rahanas from your squad
    • Join Construction Vessel to your squad.
    • Immediately get out of any menu and wait till you receive a message from the pilot about no fuel. Click his portrait and select option 2. Don't Use Fuel. This will take 10-15 minutes for the vessel to power up its jump drive and get into your system.
    • Select the 3D box portrait mini icons that will magically appear once the Construction Vessel is near you and build the station.
    • When building the station just click next next next until you're done and tell her to handle it all. Don't bother giving her credits.
      • At this time unsure if defence is really needed or not so you may wish to add defences during the build process.

    • You don't need to complete the station to continue.

Joint Operation [Medium]

Albion Exodus [Medium]

    • Try to stay away from the capital ship as it will destroy you fairly quickly.
  • Fly to: Crimson Rocks
  • Fly to: Barren Heart
  • Fly to: Heartache Mist

  • Fly to: Jump Beacon
  • Defend: Jump Beacon
  • Fly to: Torrid Veil
  • Fly to: Glaring Truth (Cutscene) (Achievement given)

Alliance [Medium]

  • Campaign doesn't say what to do at this point other than talk about drones...lots of drones. What you need to do is complete the station you started earlier.
  • Contact the Construction Vessel you deployed earlier in the campaign as it should still be there building.
    • Check the resource status with your Architect. You should still need something like 674 Bio-Optic Wiring and 286 Fusion Reactors. You can take two paths. Scan and board PMC ships that contain what you need or take the Rahanas to trade in Albion (which this will be doing).
  • Join Rahanas to squad
  • Plot a course to Buried Treasure in Ascendancy. This is a safe system to get the two main items you need.
  • Do a buy order for The Bio-Optic Wiring at the High Tech Fab and Fusion Reactors at the Ship Tech Fab. We will also be purchasing for part two of the station.
  • Plot a course to Fervid Corona in Glaring Truth or to where ever you put your station.
  • Sell the resources to your Construction Vessel.
  • It will take 30-40 minutes for your station to build. Feel free to do missions or explore during this time.
  • Cutscene will appear once the station is built.
  • (Optional) Hire a manager to manage production.
    • You should be able to hire one from Solar Energetics in Fervid Corona.
    • To assign the manager dock at your station. Then hit Enter, Crew (5), Call remotely (2). Select your new manager and hit Comm. Then click Work Here (4).
  • (Optional) Hire a specialist to improve production.
    • You're technically suppose to get a Metallurgical Engineer since they help Refined Metals production. However as I've search in most game saves they are 90% PMC and the other 10% are in a zone that you can't get to yet. Plus the campaign doesn't seem to need any kind of specialist.
  • Contact the Construction Vessel's Architect
    • Click Show construction plan (1).
    • Scroll down until you see URV Wharf and highlight Stage 1 right under it.
    • Click Extend and Next.
    • You will notice that on the next screen that you need the following:
    • Click Ok.
  • Buy 672 Energy Cells at Solar Energetics.
  • Sell all three resources to your Construction Vessel.
  • Wait for the URV Wharf to build which is typically completed in about 20 minutes.
  • Remove Rahanas from squad.
  • Quick message from Nakano will appear once the URV Wharf is complete.
