FANDOM


UFO:Afterlight has many events. For example, win the tutorial mission and the people will discuss the need of a military force. Not long after, communication officer will report that communication with Earth is lost. And when human meet the first alien faction, they will send a diplomatic message requesting alliance.

Events in Afterlight are both trigger and time based. Some events happens no matter what you do, like losing communication, and some events happen with a trigger, like meeting aliens. Difficulty does not affect the time between events.

Below is a list of events. Times are rounded to nearest 15 minutes interval. Because of game engine's imprecise timing, the actual trigger time may be off by a few minutes.
