Finally, Tier Missions are Missions you can complete to obtain Stars for raising your MISSION PASS tier. After obtaining 10 Stars, your tier will increase, and you will be able to redeem rewards from your Mission Pass. Tier Missions change weekly and are usually for things you would already be doing, such as Enhancing a weapon or eliminating a certain number of enemies.
But not really a whole lot of information as of yet
ARKS Missions are already in PSO2. They give you SG, boosters, Excubes, EXP Tickets, etc. I'm guessing it's the same in PSO2NA, meaning the SG Shop will probably give battle passes? There's no Tier System however in JP. So I don't know how that relates to Battle Passes, since there's no mention of it. The Mission pass might just be a glorified Extreme Pass, and thus has nothing to do with getting Premium for Free or being able to trade with others.
