When playing the campaign, you have to choose an explorer and go on expeditions for the Explorer Clubs and the Exposition Universelle. The campaign is organized in 4 years and each year has several random expeditions as well as one Story Act expedition. The Story Act expeditions have some more scripted stories in which you interact with and follow Victoria Malin, the director of the Exposition Universelle. It is through these expeditions that you learn more about the Curious Islands, the Palikao as well as the Island's different inhabitants. These expeditions play on 2 or 3 islands instead of just 1 like in the normal expeditions.
