After the cutscene in the Otherworld you will return to York’s apartment. Francis is attempting to strangle Aaliyah who he seems to believe is Forrest Kaysen.

Francis leaves the apartment and will start walking towards a light. At the end of the light you will transition to 5 hours later in Le Carre when M.65 begins.

M.65: The Final Battle

When you take control of Francis you will be inside the Cold Storage Warehouse in Le Carre. Immediately save then stock up on supplies from the vending machine and Toolbox like ammo (since Francis has nothing). When ready walk over to the portal and go into it.

Make your way through the first Otherworld section and defeat the enemies that are in your way. Reach the portal at the end and go through it to reach the hanging meat room. Head through the meat room and use the save next to the portal. Head through the portal.

Go through the next section and access the portal there. After this second portal you will reach the storage area of the building. Run to the elevator and go into the portal that is there. Make your way through this Otherworld section to reach the area you first met Avery at the start of the game. Save if needed then walk into the caged area. This completes M.65.

M.66 Puzzle Pieces

When you enter the caged area you will trigger Profiling. To complete your profile of this area you need to interact with the three inspection points. Once you’ve done this M.66 will complete. You will then see some Red Seeds on the ground nearby. Follow the seed trail to the portal.

M.67 Red Seeds

Follow the Red Seeds to the portal and go through it to reach another section of Otherworld. Complete this section to reach the final room before the boss fight. Save, load up on supplies, and head through the portal to complete M.67.

Episode 4 2019 Boss: Avery Smith

Walk into the research facility and you will see Avery standing in the middle of the room. Go over to Avery to trigger a cutscene and then a boss fight.

Avery as a boss is a bit different than the previous fights we’ve done since it is an actually mobile enemy. The fight with Avery takes place over two forms that have three phases each. The first form features 10 ft tall Avery. In the first phase of this fight Avery will charge at you. Once you damage him to half he will start pounding the ground which release pockets of steam that damage you. In the final phase Avery gets a leap attack.

Once you defeat the first Avery form he will morph into a really tall child. In this form Avery takes low damage unless you hit his walkman/box thing on his chest. Avery will cover this box with his hands when moving around, but you can sprint towards and then away to bait out an attack where he moves his hands so you can shoot the box to deal critical damage.

Like the first form there are three phases in this fight. In the first phase Avery walks around the arena and attacks when you get close. In the second form Avery goes to the corner of the arena and grabs the barrels there to throw at you. The third phase is a collection of the attacks seen in phase 1+2.

Upon defeat of Avery walk forward to Patricia to trigger a cutscene. During the cutscene select Give him your hand when prompted. What follows is a timed Inspection so select the following:

  • Altar.
  • Patricia.
  • Saint Rouge Solution tank.
  • Aaliyah Davis.
  • Forrest Kaysen.

After this investigation and cutscene you will trigger another boss fight with Forrest Kaysen.

Episode 4 2019 Boss: Forrest Kaysen

The Forest Kaysen fight is fairly straightforward. Kaysen stands behind Aaliyah and uses her as his source of defense and damage. When you deal damage to Kaysen you will need to avoid shooting Aaliyah. This can be done easily when Kaysen jumps into the air or strafes away from Aaliyah. When you are not dealing damage to Kaysen you will need to dodge shots fired by Aaliyah which can be done fairly easily with dodge (RB while aiming).

At certain points in this fight you will trigger a QTE where you need to hit B. If done successfully you will throw the contract at Kaysen which deals high damage. Defeat the Kaysen boss fight to finish the game and trigger the final cutscene you will see that wraps the story up. Wait until the end of the credits for a couple of stingers then the game will officially end. If you wish to start the game on NG+ simply load the save with the Red Seeds on it.
