The special endings require a few more additional steps in knowing just how to get to them unlike the straightforward career prologues that make up the majority of the endings. This is the basis for all these endings to achieve them so for now, that is all you need to know on how to discover them. A few more key narrative discoveries can and will remain hidden within its other trophies and achievements which are also worth exploring.
