Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe has all the endings from the original game as well as the new endings as well in the Ultra Deluxe version of the game. In this guide, we tell you how to get the secret bucket ending in the game.
Secret Bucket Ending
To unlock the secret bucket ending, first, you need to complete the New Content Ending. You will not get the bucket without completing the new content ending. After you’ve completed the new content ending, the bucket will be right next to table number 422.
Once you start, go and grab the Bucket and go through the left door to the Boss’s Office Stairs. Go up the stairs and towards the boss’s room but when you are about to enter through the double doors, you quickly want to step back from the doors as you step in. If you did it right then the doors will close as you were stepping out of the room. Now go back to your office at the very start. You’ll notice the door to the right of your office is now open. It’ll be the alternate path that you’d have to take in this ending. Go through the door and go up the stairs to the Escape Pod Bay. You’ll enter a very dark hallway, just keep going and you’ll reach the Escape Pod. Go near the Escape Pod and Stanley will save the Bucket.
The saved bucket can also be found in the Epilogue of the game. After the secret bucket ending, go to the menu and start the Epilogue. You’d have to go through the desert and eventually you’ll find the Escape Pod with its door open and bucket inside of it.
You can modify almost every ending and interaction by collecting the bucket. Carry the bucket and you can unlock variations on almost every original ending and Ultra-Deluxe ending.
