Get to the Observatory GRE base
The observatory is located west of the city center and it is in vicinity of, among others, a dam. While en route to your objective, you can glide or simply proceed on foot, but when it comes to the latter, you'll have to swim through a large water reservoir.
There is a safe zone in this area that you should unlock in case the main character dies (more information below). This one is a small hut.
During the journey through the forest, you should encounter warnings about a large minefield (exemplary plate in screenshot 1) You can proceed in two ways:
- Walk slowly and find mines along the way - They are on the surface and are not hidden underground. You can avoid the mines or detonate them from a safe distance (e.g. using a bow).
- Choose to climb next to the dam walls (picture 2) - Remember to press the indicated button rhythmically to climb the steep slope.
Regardless of the path you choose, you will reach the destroyed observatory . Approach the mission marker. You have to interact with the board . The interaction icon can only appear if you stand at the right angle - the idea is to move the large plank blocking the entrance.
After entering the observatory, a cut-scene will start and a new story quest will be unlocked (Welcome On Board).
