The story of Final Fantasy 16 just got expanded with the Echoes of the Fallen DLC, and now there are more missions to complete before hitting the credits. Here’s a full list of every mission in the Final Fantasy XVI campaign, DLC, and side quests.

Final Fantasy 16 is one of the most acclaimed games of 2023, and fans have fallen in love with Valisthea and its many memorable characters. There’s a lot to tackle in the main story of FF16, its DLC, and the New Game Plus called “Final Fantasy Mode.”

But as the campaign of Final Fantasy XVI unfolds over many decades and takes Clive to plenty of different locations, players might be wondering how many quests they have left before hitting the end.

Here’s how many quests there are in Final Fantasy 16 along with a full list of story and DLC missions, and side quests, so you can easily track your progress.

How many quests in Final Fantasy XVI?

There are a total of 50 story quests to finish in Final Fantasy 16 before the end credits, which is expected to take players around 38 hours to complete. FF16’s latest DLC added one more questline called Echoes of the Fallen, and although it is not mandatory to complete, it adds 3 hours to the main story content.

Of course, if you’re looking to see and do everything in Valisthea, there are also 76 side quests to find. If you’re a completionist, it could take you closer to 70 hours to hit the end of Final Fantasy 16.

The Echoes of the Fallen DLC added its own questline to the game, with a completely new mission that will add almost 3 hours of new content, including new items and boss fights. To access this new questline, players will need to reach the Back to Their Origin main quest and talk to Charon in the main hub.
