View Full Version : Main Mission cannot Progress- Talk to Skell about the plan

12-28-2019, 04:22 PM
I'm playing on Stadia but have seen others on console report same problem.

I have been doing main mission and got to the Enemy Of My Enemy where I believe u rescue Skell. This is the problem I have seemed to have skipped the rescue, when I went to Erewhon I was asked to speak to Fox and then Skell appeared in cut scene.

Now it is asking me to "Talk to Skell about the plan" I get a yellow icon where I assume Skell should be but he is not there. I cannot talk to him so cannot progress.... game is broken.

Any work around or know how to Fix?

I captured a photo of the seat I believe Jace Skell should have been sat at. I can share that somehow if needed.

What I can report though is I found a way to fix it.

I believe the issue was probably caused by Co-Op playing with other players that had already completed the rescue Skell mission. I know When other joined my squad I was part way through rescuing Skell - I was in the area where his lab was. I think two of us in a three man squad then went to do a faction mission but the 3rd player continued to rescue Skell. I never actually rescued Skell myself but when I went back to base I had a cut scene when I next spoke to Fox and skell appeared. After the cut scene it moved my onto "Talk to Skell" but he was not there. I had Yellow mission icon where he should be sat but his seat was empty.

So to fix - I joined another player that had Jace Skell sat at his chair back at base. When i joined the other player Jace then appeared for me and I was able to talk to him. So can now progress.

I think the issue is the game gets confused when different players Co-Op when they are at different stages of the mission.

Hope this helps.
