Directorial Override is one of the main story quests in Control. This mission revolves around finding a woman named Emily. The following chapter describes how to complete this task.
You start in the main hall. Move straight ahead. A short cut-scene will launch. After it, go in the direction of the elevator. Enter it and select the only available floor you may choose. Now you will find yourself at a linear sequence of movement through a long corridor. Along the way you will meet a group of enemies. They are placed in something that resembles a storehouse.
Then you'll find yourself in a big room full of all sorts of piers. There, you will once again encounter a group of opponents. The target of your path is a small steel door on the left. You'll find a janitor you need to talk to.
After that, you will have to go out the door behind the janitor and walk down the corridor to the elevator. It will allow you to descend to the power station. At this point, you need to repair the water cooling pump and the energy converters. Both of these sites are marked with arrays, so you will not have problems finding them.
Cold water pump
In the case of a water pump, you must first mount the power supply on the three pumps. Take a cube lying around. And set it in place on the first of the targets.
Now you have to break through for other pumps. When you come to them, it turns out that the blocks holding the battery do not work. The cause will be the mysterious creature that inhabits the tunnels.
You have to go in there and destroy it. It takes the form of a large mass that obstructs the entire passage. Shoot the white dots. This will make the creature to retreat. However, you should keep an eye on the side tunnels. If there is a creature in them, it will spit on the toxic liquid that reduces your health points.
Once the tunnels have been cleared, the blockades will be active again. Install the battery in both pumps that are in the room.
In this case, you just need to restore power. Around the middle of the converter there are three battery compartments. You need to bypass the entire structure around and install all the power sources. The only difficulty here are the enemies patrolling the area.
After repairing both devices, head for the elevator near the conventions. It'll get you down to the control room. There you will encounter a lot of resistance from opponents. Use the room worktop as your shield. After the fight, get to the large console in the central part of the room. This will allow you to unlock the next level of the building. However, to reach it, it is necessary to take control of the zone.
Return to the elevator and go back to the power plant. From there, you'll get to the training field. Then you will find the last straight path that leads you to Emily.
