Genesis Pt. 2: The Crash

Waking up from the dream, you’re now stuck in the Arizona wilderness. On a high cliff, tap to escape the helicopter door you’re stuck underneath, and turn around to find a rock path down to the crash site.

  • [Tutorial] You can review important story footage at any time. Whenever your camera is up and reads REC – that footage is saved and available for re-watch.

Jump over the gap, and step onto the narrow ledge to cross it. Moving onto a ledge will automatically place you on the path, then you just need to hold LEFT or RIGHT. To drop from a ledge, press CROUCH.

At the wreckage, bring up your camera and aim at the crash until the red circle fills. This will “record” footage. Check your footage and review the scene to get info on your next objective. In this case, Lynn is still alive – her body isn’t in the wreckage.

The way forward isn’t obvious – to help, bring up the camera and activate Night-Vision to see the dim path beyond the helicopter crash. Drop down from the ledge onto the path along the cliff wall to stumble on another footage opportunity. Near the fire, record the hanging corpse of the pilot.
