Unlike any previous Digimon game, Digimon Survive incorporates two distinct gameplay styles and mechanics for the different portions of the game. The story sections are all presented in a visual novel format, where you will read dialogue, make choices, learn about characters, and build up your Karma. Then, when battles break out, you are shifted into the tactical, grid-based battle system. While both are new to the series, it is the visual novel elements that have the greatest impact on the story presented.

Difficulty

Moderate

Digimon Survive's story is very mature in its themes and how it handles its characters. It is also quite serious about the player's choices actually having meaning beyond just some flavor text being changed here or there. In fact, the ending you get will be drastically changed based on decisions you make throughout the journey, leading to multiple possibilities. In total, there are five possible endings you can get, so to make sure you get the one you want, here's what you need to do to get each one in Digimon Survive.

Note: There will be massive spoilers ahead for every ending in the game. We will list the requirements to get each ending before explaining the ending itself, but be warned when reading further.

How to get the Moral ending

The first three possible endings all relate to your different Karma stats: Moral, Wrathful, and Harmony. Each time you make important decisions, you will earn points toward one of these alignments. Here's the ending you get for being Moral.

Step 1: Play through Digimon Survive with at least 25 Moral Karma points by the time you reach chapter 8.

Step 2: Save the game if you like.

Step 3: Choose the Be true to my friends option.

Step 4: Defeat The Master in the battle to cleanse it.

Step 5: You will learn that The Master was using child sacrifices to keep the two parallel worlds from collapsing, which would kill all the Digimon in it. Your characters will claim that the will and belief of humans will be enough to keep the world from collapsing and go back home to tell everyone about the existence of Digimon. Their Digimon partners all choose to stay behind until the human world is ready to accept them.

How to get the Harmony ending

The next Karma-specific ending will be for the Harmony ending, which follows the same fundamentals as the others, so be sure to build up your Harmony points before the point of no return.

Step 1: Play through Digimon Survive with at least 25 Harmony Karma points by the time you reach chapter 8.

Step 2: Save the game if you like.

Step 3: Choose the Save the world option.

Step 4: Miu will die, causing Kaito to form a new pact with Piedmon to form Boltboutamon, which you must defeat in battle. Afterward, The Master consumes Boltboutamon, who you will then need to battle.

Step 5: This ending will show the portal connecting the two worlds expanding and becoming stable, which could be a threat to both worlds. Your team, along with their Digimon partners, go to the human world and form the Japanese Institute of Electronic Symbiotes to help humans and Digimon exist together.

How to get the Wrathful ending

The final Karma-specific ending will be for the Wrathful ending, which follows the same fundamentals as the others, so be sure to build up your Wrathful points before the point of no return.

Step 1: Play through Digimon Survive with at least 25 Wrathful Karma points by the time you reach chapter 8.

Step 2: Save the game if you like.

Step 3: Choose the Stay with Agumon option.

Step 4: This will cause Saki to die and Aoi to fuse with Labramon to form Plutomon. The Master will then fuse with Plutomon to gain its power, which you must defeat in a battle.

Step 5: This ending shows the portal between worlds growing larger and is no longer possible to close. The team realizes the two worlds will inevitably become one again and head back to the human world with their partners. This time, the merging of the worlds results in chaos, with your surviving teammates fighting to try and keep the peace.

How to get the true ending

There is indeed a true ending to Digimon Survive. However, it isn't one you will be able to get right away, and it has some very specific requirements. Here's how to get the true ending.

Step 1: Beat the game and get any of the prior listed endings.

Step 2: Start a New Game + playthrough.

Step 3: Make sure Ryo has the highest affinity of any character.

Step 4: All characters need to survive.

Step 5: You will meet Haruchika and her Digimon Fanglongmon, who has gone into Ruin Mode. You will need to defeat it to revert it to a calm nature and release her, at which point all the kids, the professor, and their partners all return to the human world.

How to get the bad ending

On the opposite side of the coin, there's the bad ending. Obviously, this isn't one you will want to get unless you're just curious about how poorly things can go.

Step 1: Play through Digimon Survive with at least 25 Wrathful Karma points by the time you reach chapter 8.

Step 2: Select the Never go back option.

Step 3: This will kick off the bad ending where Takuma refuses to return to the Digimon world despite the others trying to convince him. He instead goes home to his mother, leaving Miyuki and Agumon.

There's a small time skip that shows Takuma and his family evacuating as a state of emergency is called due to a portal opening up in the sky.

How to get Ancient Coins in Sea of Thieves

Like any live service game, Sea of Thieves has its own form of premium currency. Ancient Coins are the most valuable treasure in the game and are used to buy various things from the Pirate Emporium, such as pets, costumes, and other cosmetics. Thankfully, there are no items you can get with these coins that give you any advantage over any other pirate on the seas except for making you look a little cooler. Still, some of those shop items are enticing enough to make at least you consider buying them. You don't have to spend real cash on anything in Sea of Thieves if you're willing to do the work. Here are all the ways you can earn Ancient Coins.
How to get Ancient Coins
There are three main methods for obtaining Ancient Coins in Sea of Thieves. The first is the most obvious and fastest: buy them with real money. In the main menu, you can access the shop and purchase various-sized bundles of ancient coins ranging from 150 to 4,250 for real money. While this is an option, we suggest not buying Ancient Coins unless you really want something right away or just feel compelled to give a little money to Rare as thanks.

The next way to get Ancient Coins is to find rare Ancient Skeletons. These gold and blue skeletons have a chance to appear on any Island, Fort, or Sea Fort and have a big sack of coins on their back. If you spot and defeat one, it can drop anywhere between 100 and 800 Ancient Coins. Make sure you're quick about it because after 20 seconds, it will dig back underground and escape.

How to get the glider in Rise of the Ronin

The expanded open world of Rise of the Ronin is so big that not even a trusty horse and fast travel systemare quite enough to make traversal as fun and fast as needed. While it might seem a little fantastical, you won't complain about the inclusion of a glider once you get your hands on it and feel how freeing it is to soar above the rooftops and countryside. This has been a heavily marketed mechanic, and yet you can miss your first chance to get it if you don't explore a little before moving on with the main quest. If you want your ronin to truly rise, make sure you check out how to get the glider here.
Where to get the glider

The glider can be found only after you complete the first "big" mission in Rise of the Ronin called "Curtain Falls, Curtain Rises." The end of this quest will have you slay the boss and engage in a short dialogue with them. No matter what you pick, you will get both the papers you need to cross into Yokohama and a key to a storage room. You're not shown where that room is or even need to go there to continue, but missing it will mean losing out on glider access.
