The Outer Worlds Brave New World Quest Guide

In The Outer World there are some Main Quests which you need to complete no matter what in order to progress through the main storyline, Brave New World is one of those quests.

The Outer Worlds Brave New World

Phineas has been captured and brought to the prison planet of Tartarus, where the Board intends to interrogate him. Now it’s up to you to infiltrate the prison and rescue Phineas before the Board can enact its plan to cull Halcyon’s population. Below we have listed two different ways of approaching the Brave New World quest.

Terra Route
Go to Terra 2 by heading back to Unreliable. You will get some dialogue when ADA tells you that the crew would like to speak with you. ADA will speak with you again after the dialogue and you will get a transmission telling you that you will be executed and your vessel seized.

You can get a Labyrinth Security Personnel ID Cartridge and either Intimidate or Lie to get it to back off. In the meantime you will find that Groundbreaker has docked as well.

After getting to the planet, get to the facility and Junlie’s troops will help you assault the facility. Go to nav point by heading down through elevator and through the restricted area.

Get through some guards and you will see lots of loot and a few vending machines on you lift, but you need to transition to The Pit. You will see a locked door on your left and there is a terminal inside with the information on the procedure to the pit.

The nearby door will take you to the lift to find another terminal in a room that allows you to Deliver Pacification Gas, and you will need a password for that. You can lie to Melody and get that password and using that password will kill all the guards on the level if you haven’t already.

Now if you have assisted Iconoclasts on Monarch they will help you with the guards on the next level after you get out of lift. Go to the left door down the hall and open the sealed door and get inside to talk to Chairman Rockwell.

You can Lie, Intimidate or Persuade him to help you if you get out of there alive. Now head to the restricted Access area.

Take the nearby lift and take the elevator in the middle and head to talk to Sophia Akande. You can Lie or charm her or you can use Science, Hack or engineering to tell her the experiments are wrong. At the end, you will have to Lie/Perception or Persuade/Science or Lie/Hack to Sophia and she will agree and return Dr. Welles to you.

Go to the nav point and steal The Chairman’s Keys and use them to free Phineas and this will mark the end of your quest.
