One new feature unveiled about PS2 is the mission system. This is a multi-layered approach to provide players with a sense of focus.[1] There are automatically generated missions, although the main focus is on player-generated missions.

Automated Missions

The most basic missions will be automated.

Squad and Outfit missions

Squad Leaders and Outfit officials will be able to arrange missions.

Empire Missions

Entire Empire-wide missions have been confirmed. It is possible these are arranged by high-ranking players with the right certifications.


The ability to create missions is a trainable skill. It sounds like there is a leadership focus available through the normal skill tree. This suggests (although not confirmed) that this replaces Command Ranks.
