The Story Quest screen from Final Fantasy XVI

Final Fantasy XVI is now out and in the player's hands. This is a long and epic adventure of Clive Rosfield who started his life as the firstborn son to the Duke of Rosaria but that changes very quickly. Over the many hours of this campaign, players will travel the world and meet all manner of people. If you're interested in seeing just how far you are in the game you might be interested to know just how many Main Scenarios or main story quests there are in the game. In this Final Fantasy XVI All Main Scenario Quests guide we'll let you know how many there are, and what their names are so that you can figure out where you are in the story.

How many Main Scenario quests are in Final Fantasy XVI?

There is a total of 50 main scenario quests that comprise the full story of Final Fantasy XVI. Some of these Main Scenario quests will be a simple linear objective to follow, but at times there will be sub-quests that appear that need to be completed before you're able to finish the Main Scenario quest. These sub-quests also have a Renown award associated with them, something you'll want to be collecting a lot of if you're interested in obtaining the Genji Gloves and the Careful Whisper Trophy. If you continue following objective markers you'll be able to get through all of them without difficulty. If you're not just interested in the Main Scenario but in finding out what else the world has to offer there are also a variety of side-quests that will appear during the story.

You can view which Main Scenario is your active quest at any point in-game by viewing it on the right side of your screen, or by checking your quests in the pause menu.
