–The Narrator, disappointed by the lackluster New Content

The New Content Ending is an ending that occurs when Stanley and The Narrator explore the supposed "new content" added in The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe.

This ending is exclusive to Ultra Deluxe.

Obtaining The Ending

It's unclear what triggers the route to this ending, but it may be linked to completing a certain amount of endings. After a restart, a new door labeled "New Content" in the hallway before the Two Doors Room will be open.

The Ending

Walking a maintenance hallway and hopping onto a small on-rails vehicle, Stanley is shown a presentation of The Stanley Parable: Ultra Deluxe. As the vehicle moves, big theatrical props and a vocal presentation from a new narrator tell the story of 2013's The Stanley Parable, its critical/commercial success, Ultra Deluxe's availability on consoles and the new content that was injected into it.

When the ride comes to a halt, Stanley and The Narrator are met with an elevator, which takes an uncomfortable amount of time to start and get moving. This mildly frustrates The Narrator, and his first impressions of Ultra Deluxe are sour.

The elevator leads up into a large room with, at the center, the first piece of "New Content" in Ultra Deluxe: The Jump Circle. A circle of tape on the floor, and a screen reading "Jumps Remaining: 36". When Stanley is standing inside the circle, he can jump until the 36 jumps of the "Jumps Remaining" counter are depleted. (It never fills back up.)

A hallway lies behind The Jump Circle and leads to another elevator. The Narrator is disappointed at this excuse for "new content", but remains hopeful as to what other "New Content" may be left.

Unfortunately, the elevator leads to a hallway (strangely, it is a catwalk hanging over the void in a blue office space) which further leads to a room with a handwritten sign that reads: "Thank you for enjoying the New Content". The Narrator gets very frustrated, but remembers that he can simply do the story with Stanley, like the "good old days". Game resets.

With the Bucket

This is the first in a cycle of new progression endings introduced in Ultra Deluxe, appearing before the Sequel Ending. Because of this, the player cannot obtain this ending with the The Bucket since it is unlocked after playing this ending. However, after completing the Epilogue, the game's progression endings are reset back to this one while still keeping the new sequel content in the Office, including the bucket.

Taking it in the New Content door will appear to keep things the same, but once Stanley enters the first elevator, the Narrator will notice you have the bucket, something he was working on for the game's sequel. This makes him realize that Stanley may have seen all his new content, like the Infinite Hole. Once reaching the sign saying "Thank you for enjoying the new content", the Narrator will realize that if Stanley has the bucket with him, he must have enjoyed the new content, congratulates himself on making a successful sequel, agrees with the sign, and the game resets.

Trivia

  • Twitter is somehow canon in The Stanley Parable, as when you are in the sign room the Narrator says "I intend to find these people on Twitter and hold them personally accountable."
