The Ghostwire Tokyo After The End quest is easily missed, but is important to complete before the end of the game. Ghostwire Tokyo gives players a lot of freedom to do things in the order they want to.

After The End is a side quest that fills out the backstory of some of the characters and unlocks the full ending of the game. Here is everything you need to know about After The End, Ghostwire Tokyo’s missable mission.

While progressing through the story you will reach a certain point in chapter four. Without spoiling much, you will enter a building, head down to the basement and then find a motorbike. You need to gather materials to repair the bike, and once done, you will use them to progress to the next part of the game.

Up to this point, you are totally safe. Once you repair the bike you will be informed that, while you will return to the open world afterwards, if you continue you will be locked out of the side missions After The End I, II, and III.

Feel free to play through the story up to this point, but be sure to head back out and complete these side missions before going any further if you want to be sure you complete the whole game.

To begin this mission, you need to answer a pay phone in the northwest of the map. It will be marked on your map as After The End I, and is found at the western end of the expressway that runs west to east. Pick up the phone to hear from Rinko, who has some leads for you to chase down.

Trying to keep spoilers to a minimum here, but from this point, you need to head south to your objective. If you check the map, you will see a green circle indicating where you need to go next. Head to this point and investigate the area. This will begin a new objective where you will need to follow the trail of a ghostly figure.

This is pretty much the structure of all three of these side missions. Go to a phone, speak to Rinko, go to the objective, follow a ghost, and pick up an object. In part two, you will need to do some climbing and gliding so be prepared for that.

The only snag is that, while part two becomes available immediately after the first, part three does not. There are conflicting reports online about how to trigger this, but in our playthrough, it triggered when in proximity to the correct payphone.

After completing After The End II, head to the Toyoi Shrine just west of where the quest started and you should hear a phone ringing. Check your map and the indicator should appear for After The End III.

With the final part of the mission complete, you are free to finish the game without fear of losing out. Completing this series of side missions for Rinko gives you the ending of her story.

Once you pass the point of no return after having done these missions, you will have a final encounter with Rinko. So, doing these missions is not only important for completionists, but for those who want the full story.

That is it, everything you need to know to complete the After The End side missions and complete Rinko’s story. For more on the game, why not check out our Ghostwire Tokyo Fallout Easter egg guide.
