Usually involves a gradual build-up to conclusion after significant playtime and outwardly seems to be the point at which the game would end, but in the end, does not. Usually a major plot twist causes the story to continue from here.

More literal case would be the appearance of end credits or similar game ending sign, but the game unexpectedly continues after this.
