This mission begins automatically after the conclusion of the previous one. Now that we are inside the temple, have Edward follow Kidd along the set route until you reach a room where a bridge collapses. Turn to the left and use the handholds on the wall here to traverse the gap to the far side and swing up onto the glowing statue head on the wall to open the door below.

Drop down and continue through the door. Follow in Kidd’s footsteps and handholds as you are lead deeper into the temple. When you reach the large water pool, dive down into it. Dive under the water and follow Kidd through the underwater tunnels, being sure to surface at the same time and in the same places as he does. When you reach the end, surface and a waypoint marker will be added in the distance.

Make your way across the rocks in the water here and climb the ruin until you reach the top. Make your way over to the temple in the distance and take the stairs up to the platform at the top. Here we’ll find a puzzle that we need to solve.

Simply climb on top of the coloured statues to move them down or use the mechanism on either side of the room to lift them up.

Essentially there is a rotating circle on the floor made up of three sections of differing colours. There is also three coloured blocks. The lever in the centre of the room will rotate the floor, whilst the mechanisms on either side of the room can pick blocks up or set them down by using the counter weighted blocks mounted on the walls.

To solve it, we need to place the coloured cubes onto the section of the circular tiles that matches. To do this, use the following steps:

  • Rotate right once.
  • Use the left counterweight to raise the red block.
  • Rotate right once.
  • Use the right counterweight to lower the green block.
  • Rotate left once.
  • Use the right counterweight to lift the blue block.
  • Rotate left once.
  • Use the right counterweight to lower the blue block.
  • Use the left counterweight to lower the red block.

The game’s explanation of the puzzle makes it sound a lot more complicated than it is. Match the coloured blocks to the corresponding colours on the floor.

Upon solving the puzzle, a scene will play and the mission will be complete.
