    I’ve enjoyed the original game, but I’m super excited that we get new content with the DLC. If you are struggling to get through a level, check out our full Talos Principle 2: Road to Elysium walkthrough.

    All Talos Principle 2: Road to Elysium levels guide

    The Talos Principle 2 Road to Elysium DLC contains three episodes: Orpheus Ascending, Isle of the Blessed, and Into the Abyss. Each chapter has plenty of puzzles and secrets to solve, and we’ll help you with them in this full guide.

    This is a work in progress – puzzle solutions for all episodes will be uploaded ASAP!

    Orpheus Ascending

    In the Orpheus Ascending episode, your goal is to collect all fragments of Sarabhai and bring them back to life.

    Yield Puzzle (1)

    Head through the barrier and into the area of the puzzle. You’ll see an Inverter that you will use to open up the blue barrier and get the Sarabhai fragment. You need to clear a path for the blue laser to get to the Blue receiver. In order to do so, you have to:

    • Pick up the Inverter.
    • Connect it to the red laser Emitter on the left.
    • Connect it to the Red receiver.
    • Connect it to the Blue receiver to unlock the gate.

    Crossing the River Puzzle (2)

    To solve the Crossing the River Puzzle in the Orpheus Ascending DLC, you’ll have to use the two connectors to get the laser to the blue Receiver.

    • Pick up the Connector on the laser Emitter side.
    • Connect it to the Emitter.
    • Connect it to the second red Receiver (1) on the right.
    • Connect it to the third red Receiver (2) on the left.
    • Connect it to the blue Receiver (3) next to the gate.

    Using the first Connector like this intersects with all of the lasers and gives you a clear path to the second Connector.

    • Connect the two Connectors, then head over to the other side.
    • Pick up the second Connector on the blue Receiver side (while keeping all of its current connections).
    • Connect it to the blue Receiver, and you’ll complete the puzzle.

    Sequence Puzzle (3)

    In the Sequence Puzzle area, you’ll find an Accumulator and a Connector, which you can use to find the solution. This one might seem complicated because of the two different colored lasers, but it’s actually quite simple.

    • First, grab the Connector and connect it with the red Emitter. Don’t worry about the fact that it can’t get through the barrier just yet.
    • Now connect the Connector to the red Receiver (1) on the wall next to the gate as well as to the Accumulator (2).
    • Step on the pressure plate to have the red Emitter charge the Accumulator with the red laser.
    • Pick up the Accumulator and connect it to the red Receiver to charge and unlock the gate.

    Vastness Puzzle (4)

    There are two Connectors in the Vastness puzzle, which you will use to solve it. One of them is behind a blue barrier, so you have to unlock it first.

    • Pick up the first Connector (2) and connect it to the red Emitter (2), then connect it to the red Receiver (3) on the wall to the left. This will unlock the second Connector (4).
    • Take it and connect it to the red Emitter and the red Receiver through the window in the other room. This will unlock the second blue gate.
    • Grab the first Connector and take it to the second room.
    • Connect it to the blue Emitter (which is locked behind a blue barrier), to the blue Receiver, and the red Receiver to the left (the one that unlocked the second Connector).
    • Place the Connector on the pressure plate to unlock the laser and complete the puzzle.

    Chain Puzzle (5)

    The Chain puzzle in the Talos Principle Orpheus Ascending DLC is pretty simple. All you have to know is where to hit with the laser.

    • Flip the Switch to pop up the puzzle
    • Pick up the Connector and connect it to the blue Emitter.
    • Once you do, connect it to the fourth blue Receiver.

    Equilibrium Puzzle (6)

    it’s just as the name of the puzzle says: you need to establish an equilibrium between the blue and red laser. There are two Connectors and two Accumulators which you need to use. There needs to be the same exact number of points that a laser goes through on both sides.

    On the red side, there are already four immovable connectors. However, on the blue side, there are only two. That means that the two Connectors you can move are both going to go on the blue side

    • Pick up the red Accumulator and connect it to the first point on the right.
    • Connect the two Connectors in a line to the left.
    • Take the blue Accumulator, attach it to the last Connector in the line, and open the gate.

    Domino Effect Puzzle (7)

    For this puzzle, it’s important to figure out which Receivers to hit exactly. There are four Connectors for each of the four sections.

    • Click on the Switch to bring up the puzzle.
    • For the first red section, connect the Connector to the red Emitter and the first red Receiver.
    • For the first blue section, connect the Connector to the blue Emitter and the third blue Receiver.
    • For the second red section, connect the Connector to the red Emitter and the fourth red Receiver.
    • For the second blue section, connect the Connector to the blue Emitter and the third blue Receiver.

    Concatenation Puzzle (8)

    For the Concatenation puzzle, you will follow a similar train of thought as in the Equilibrium puzzle. There are two connectors locked behind a purple barrier, and one isn’t. First, let’s take care of the red side.

    • Go through the purple barrier and take one of the two Connectors.
    • Connect it to the red Emitter and then to the first immovable point to activate the red Receivers.

    The red side is simple, but the blue side gets more complicated.

    • First, take the second Connector in the red area close to the purple barrier where you can see the blue laser Emitter and connect them.
    • Go back to the other room and take the one Connector there.
    • Attach it to the red area Connector before connecting it to the blue immovable point (don’t connect it directly to the blue Receiver, as it won’t work).
    • Once you’ve connected everything, place the Connector on the pressure plate to open the blue Emitter.

    Causation Nexus Puzzle (9)

    If you’re like me and get confused about how to get the Hexahedron that is way up in the air with no other items, don’t worry. It’s easy to forget that 1k can also block lasers with his body.

    The blue and red lasers intersect, with only one making it through. The two pressure plates only open the gates to help the lasers reach their respective Receivers. With all of that information in mind, let’s begin.

    • First, step on the pressure plate to drop the Hexahedron one platform down.
    • After it drops, block the red laser to the right. Now, the blue laser is active, which means you can head on over to the other pressure plate. This will let the blue laser reach the blue Receiver, and the Hexahedron will drop once more.
    • Go to the other side and block the blue laser. Once the red laser makes it through, step on the pressure plate on that side for the third Hexahedron drop.
    • This is the final one. Just like before, block the red laser and step on the pressure plate.
      The cube is now on the ground. Use it as a step to reach the fragment.

    Incarnation Puzzle (10)

    The tenth puzzle of the DLC utilizes the same strategy as the one before, using 1k’s body to switch the lasers in different directions.

    • Head to the blue laser in the middle area and block it. This will allow the red laser to hit the red Receiver and open the blue gate.
    • There will now be a red laser opposite the blue laser you just blocked. You should block the red laser now to open the second blue gate.
    • Now, head through the first barrier and block that red laser. The blue barrier will close up again, effectively trapping the red laser.
    • Go to the red Emitter and block the laser coming out of it. This will open the blue gate towards the shard.
    • To get back, block the blue laser so that the red laser hits the red Receiver once again.

    Breakthrough Puzzle (11)

    In order to activate the Receiver at the end, you will need to clear the path with the two Inverters.

    • Connect both Inverters to the blue Emitter individually.
    • Connect it to the green Receiver (2) on the right, along with the red Receiver (2) next to the gate.
    • Take the second converter and connect it to the green Receiver (3) on the left and the red Receiver (2) next to the gate.

    Switchboard Puzzle (12)

    Seeing the Switchboard puzzle can be very overwhelming for the first time, but it’s all about simple laser placements (no need to overcomplicate it). There are two Connectors that will help you reach the solution.

    • Take one Connector and attach it to the blue Emitter.
    • Connect it to the third point (from left to right) in the bottom row.
    • Now put that down, grab the other Connector, and attach it to the red Emitter.
    • Connect it to the first point in the second row.
    • Take the first Connector again and connect it to the second point in the second row along with the third point in the first row. This will activate all Receivers and solve the puzzle.

    Extension Puzzle (13)

    This one is similar to the Equilibrium puzzle, where you have to get the exact number of points for each laser. The red laser has six points, while the blue only has two. That means you have to add all three available Connectors to the blue side.

    • To unlock the two Connectors, grab the one outside and place it on the pressure plate.
    • Connect the red Emitter and the red Receiver through it.
    • Take the two Connectors out of the room and leave the third one on the pressure plate.
    • Connect the three Connectors in a line, and then connect the last one to the blue Emitter on the wall.

    Data Stream Puzzle (14)

    Similar to the Domino Effect puzzle, here you have to figure out which Receivers to hit in the row.

    • For the first red section, connect the Connector with the red Emitter and the first red Receiver.
    • For the first blue section, connect the Connector with the blue Emitter and the third blue Receiver.
    • For the second red section, connect the Connector with the first red Connector and the third red Receiver (if you connect it directly to the red Emitter, then the two blue Receivers on each side will shut down; that’s why you have to dilute it through the other Connector).
    • For the second blue section, connect the Connector with the blue Emitter and the second blue Receiver.

    Flow Control Puzzle (15)

    Much like the name of the puzzle suggests, you are supposed to control the flow of the lasers with the six Hexahedrons.

    • Take two Hexahedrons and place them on each side of the blue laser at the start. This will activate the blue Receiver.
    • Head to the right. Place a Hexahedron on the nearest green laser coming from the top, then place another one to block the closest laser to the green Receiver. This will activate it.
    • Move over to the left now. Block the closest green laser with a Hexadron. Go to the green laser coming from the ceiling closest to the red Receiver and block it. This will activate it and solve the puzzle.

    Propagation Cancelation Puzzle (16)

    The point of this puzzle is to cancel out some of the lasers with different colors. It seems a bit overwhelming, but it is quite simple.

    • Connect the green Emitter and the second notch from the green Receiver to activate it.
    • Connect the blue Emitter and the first notch from the blue Receiver to activate it.
    • Take the same Connector and connect the blue Emitter to the fourth notch from the red Receiver to activate it.

    Heart of Annubis Puzzle

    Once you get all of the fragments from the blue puzzles, you’ll activate the Heart of Annubis puzzle. You can see it as a yellow marker on your map, but it’s located at the crossroads that lead to all of the different puzzles. Step into the purple beam and climb up the stairs to reach the puzzle.

    Your goal is to activate all Receivers on the walls (two of each color) of the heart of Annubis. There are two Connectors that you will use to achieve this. There are also only red and green Emitters for this puzzle.

    • First, take one Connector and attach it to the green Emitter.
    • In order to turn on both green Receivers, connect to the point between them and the one point to the right of it.
    • To activate the bottom blue Receiver (as well as set up half of the activation for the top blue Receiver), use the green laser to connect to the two points in the row next to them.
    • To activate the red Receivers, connect the red Emitter to the three points in a row above the bottom red Receiver.
    • To activate the top blue Receiver, use the red laser to connect to the right point.

    Once you have it complete, head into the purple beam again to reach the last fragment of Sarabhai. However, once you are back down, there are three additional (optional) yellow puzzles you can complete to find more fragments.

    Hysterisis Yellow Puzzle

    The first yellow puzzle you’ll encounter is Hysterisis. There are two Connectors and two Receivers, along with a pole in the middle that keeps moving. You have to use this to switch which laser and receiver are active.

    • Connect the blue Emitter and Reciever, then connect it to the red Receiver as well. Put the Connector in the corner farther from the entrance.
    • Connect the red Emitter and Reciever, then connect it to the blue Receiver as well. Put the Connector in the corner closer to the entrance.

    As the pole moves, it will keep disrupting each of the lasers. All you have to do is wait for the switch in front of both blue walls, and you’ll find the fragment.

    Clockwork Yellow Puzzle

    When it comes to the Clockwork puzzle, you will need to set it up so that each blue barrier goes down one by one in a clockwork direction. This can happen when all three color laser beams cross. The timing of it also won’t allow for the fans to power up, so you can easily pass through.

    • Connect one Connector to the blue Emitter and Receiver along with the green Receiver.
    • Connect one Connector to the red Emitter and Receiver along with the blue Receiver.
    • Connect one Connector to the green Emitter and Receiver along with the red Receiver.

    Step by Step Yellow Puzzle

    The final yellow puzzle of the Orpheus Ascending Talos Principle 2 DLC is the Step by Step puzzle. You’ll employ the body block mechanic here.

    • Connect the left Connector to the blue Emitter (1) and Receiver (2) along with the right point (3) and red Receiver (4).
    • Connect the right Connector to the red Emitter (5) and Receiver (6) along with the left point (7) and blue Receiver (8).
    • Click on both Switches to lift up the gates.
    • Stand in front of the blue Emitter to block the laser and let the red laser hit the point.
    • Step on the pressure plate and wait until the red laser activates the first left red Receiver.
    • Stand in front of the red Emitter to block the laser and let the blue laser hit the point.
    • Step on the pressure plate and wait until the blue laser activates the first right blue Receiver.
    • Repeat this two more times and climb up the stairs to reach the right fragment.

    Once you have collected it, head back outside and select to go back to the real world, thus completing the Orpheus Ascending episode of the Road to Elysium Talos Principle 2 DLC.
