With three sub-functions captured, its time to focus on capturing HEPHAESTUS. All things considered, HEPHAESTUS seems to have done well for itself after separating from GAIA. It’s not contained to a single device, its processing power rivals GAIA, and its created some killer (in both the literal and cool way) machines. It seems that HEPHAESTUS has even been able to rewrite parts of its own code to protect itself from Aloy. This won’t be easy, but with the help of Beta, there is a plan. Before executing, though, we take some time to catch up with team at the base, as well as head south so we can explore more of The Stillsands.

– Merging DEMETER with GAIA
