How to Unlock Artoria in Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star

Artoria Pendragon, otherwise simply known as Saber in the Fate/Zero and Fate/stay night anime adaptations, is one of the most notable characters within the Fate universe and although she does make an appearance within Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star you will not be able to use her straight away.

In order to use Artoria Pendragon within Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star a certain 'restrictive' set of requirements need to be met; and our friends at XSEED Games have put together a little guide on how to unlock her.

Of course; if you prefer to read about it then here are the requirements for unlocking Artoria Pendragon within Fate/EXTELLA: The Umbral Star.

If you are using version 1.00:

2) Choose one of the levels with a 'mystery' side mission (on normal difficulty or higher)

- Altera's Arc & Cu Chulainn Stage = Sector E
- Spoiler Arc & Tamamo Stage = Sector H

5) Defeat numerous enemies within that sector and consume 5 health pieces whilst in that sector.
6) Upon collecting 5 health pieces a message will appear stating that a powerful servant is approaching afterwhich Artoria will appear on screen.
7) Defeat Artoria, and then complete the mission as normal, in order to unlock Artoria as a playable character within the game.
