Endings – The Alternate Histories

Through my painstaking research and continual playing of the game I’ve discovered that there are eight possible outcomes to Titanic.  In this post I will of course tell you what objects you need to obtain to achieve the endings.

1.  Soviet Germany
Vlad gets either or both the Rubaiyat and the real necklace.  Carlson leaves the ship with the notebook and the painting.

World War I broke out because Vlad had either the real necklace or the Rubaiyat with which to finance the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand.  The Communist takeover of Russia did not happen, because you saved the notebook and Lenin, Trotsky, and other Communist revolutionaries were killed.

World War II did not happen, because Hitler was successful as an artist.  The Communists seized power in Berlin instead of the Nazis, became powerful and eventually took over all of Europe, including Britain.

2.  The Soviets Win (Version 1)
Carlson leaves with the Rubaiyat and the real necklace, or they go down with the ship.  The notebook goes down with the ship or is taken by someone else, but you leave the ship with the painting.

There was no World War I, but the Communists took over Russia.  Hitler became a successful painter and was not available to unite a fractured and weakened Germany against the Soviets.  All of Europe, including Britain, was united into a single Soviet Socialist Republic.

3.  The Soviets Win (Version 2)Vlad gets either or both the Rubaiyat and the real necklace and Carlson fails to get the notebook.  He does, however leave the ship with the painting.

World War I happened, but the Communists took over Russia.  Hitler became a successful artist in a Germany devastated by depression and a humiliating peace.  All of Europe, including Britain, was united in a Soviet Socialist Republic.

4.  The Nazis Win (Version 1)
Vlad gets either or both the Rubaiyat and the real necklace.  Carlson left with ship with the notebook, but the painting went down with ship.

Britain surrenders
Britain surrenders

World War I occurred on schedule, because Archduke Ferdinand was assassinated.  The Russian revolution never happened, because Lenin and the other revolutionaries were killed.  When Hitler came to power, the Czar’s regime was too weak to resist, an exhausted Britain surrendered, and the Nazis took over all of Europe.

5.  The Nazis Win (Version 2)
Carlson leaves with either or both the Rubaiyat and the real necklace, or they go down with the ship.  Carlson also left the ship with the notebook, but the painting is lost.

World War I does not occur, and neither does the Russian revolution.  In 1927, Hitler overthrew the Kaiser and channelled the full power of a Germany unweakened by World War I into industry and high-tech weapons.

Germany developed the atomic bomb in 1939.  The West, weakened by complacency, now finds itself facing a nuclear-armed Germany bent on world-domination.

6.  The Nazis Win (Version 3)
Vlad gets neither the Rubaiyat nor the real necklace, and both the necklace and the painting are lost.

World War I does not occur, and neither does the Russian revolution.  In 1927, Hitler overthrows the Kaiser, and the Nazis develop the A-bomb six years early.  A crisis has developed, and…

“… we await Berlin’s answer”

7.  Unchanged
Vlad gets either or both the Rubaiyat and the real necklace, and both the notebook and painting are lost.

Seem familiar?

This is the version of history that really happened, the one you’re trying to change.  World War I happened, the Soviets took over Russia, and World War II took place on schedule.

You end up in that same London flat in 1942 again… if only the past could be changed playing around in your head once more.

8.  The Best of All Outcomes
You leave the ship with the Rubaiyat, the real necklace, the notebook, and the painting.  Alternatively, the Rubaiyat and/or the necklace could have been lost to Riviera and went down with the ship.  The important thing is that Vlad did not get them.

World War I never happened.  The Communist revolution was aborted and they never took power in Russia.  Following along the same lines, World War II never happened.  Mankind entered an age of apparelled peace and prosperity.

  1. am not happy with that ending Soviet Germany
    instead of fighting germans we fight some 1 els and get are ass’s handed to us but its only a game britain is to strong

  2. Why do I feel like one time when I finished the game and I saved Shalaigh’s baby during the sinking, it was mentioned in the ending. Maybe I’m just going crazy but I honestly feel like that happened. But when I did the same thing again, there was no mention of it at the end.

    • I remember this too! It said something around the lines of “Fortunately Shalaigh and the baby survived”

      It’s been forever ago since I seen this, but I think it happened when you left the titanic and took the baby with you instead of giving it back to her.

    • To get the ending with Shalaigh in it, you have to first have not found the painting in the Cargo Hold. Then during the sinking, trade the letter for the baby but don’t give the baby back to Shalaigh. Instead leave with the baby.

  3. So I want to record me playing the game to make a “movie” (entertainment purposes only, no sell) and I don’t know what kind of ending I should have. I’m thinking of not changing the past and having it all just be a flashback but at the same time I’d like to change it. What would you all suggest?

    • “What if I had met with my contact?” says Carlson in the opening, so he either didn’t receive the message from PP, or didn’t heed it. Thus, my guess is that the “initial” scenario would be very boring, so just aim for screwing up all of the mission elements and getting the “real life” ending.

  4. I think the times I’ve played it I always ended up with the 7th outcome. Bummer, but at least I completed the game. Haha.

  5. This Game Makes Me Lol

  6. Wow, didn’t remember there were so many endings. My father and I played this but all I recall is the complete success (no WWI or II, no USSR) or failure, but I don’t think I ever saw the Soviet or Nazi wins.

    Another more obvious ending: go down with the ship. Still better than failing and ending as bad as you started. :p

    One thing that always bugged me (and my father): is there really no way to prevent the sinking ?
