Note that the endings have certain sequences that will
play depending on a few choices you made through the game, but if you choose to
kill Menendez at the end, then you will always have the YouTube clip about his
death and the rioting. If Chloe is
alive, she will save the world. If not,
then the world is in peril from the virus as the British computer scientist –the
replacement for Chloe, cannot stop it. If you chose to save Mason, then he will
show up to talk to Woods. If you killed
him, then David will retire, and so forth.
There are few actions throughout the game that actually determines what
happens at the ending scene and different combinations of choices will result
in different endings being played out.
Here are the best, worst, and some in between.
This ending is arguably the best ending that you can
get. Everything works out in the end for
the world, and everyone—well almost everyone, is still alive. You will get it if
you don’t kill Mason on the rooftop; if you kept Chloe alive by killing Harper
as Farid, and if you decided to capture Menendez alive instead of killing him
at the very end.
This is the worst ending that you can receive. If you killed Mason on the rooftop; if you
didn’t save Chole, either by rescuing her from Defalco or by choosing to keep
Harper alive, and you decided to take Menendez alive at the end of the game. It
doesn’t end up well for anyone, as the British computer scientist has no idea
how to stop the worm, Menendez escapes, and then goes to pay Woods a visit.
This is more of a blah ending as it doesn’t show the
aftermath of the virus and instead shows the uprising of Cordis Die as
Menendez’s death triggers the video to play.
Mason still meets his father, but the world is in chaos as revolts
happen across the world.
This is the ending you will receive if you killed Mason
on top of the roof and decided to off Menendez at the end instead of capturing
him. Again it shows the same sequence of when Menendez dies and the world revolts
as Cordis Die uprises, but different than the other endings, it shows Mason
telling Woods that he is done and that he is retiring.
If you thought some of those ending were bad, then wait
until you get to feast your eyes on the travesty that follows all the endings.
