In this Outer Wilds Tower of Quantum Knowledge Guide, we’ll tell you how to get into the Tower of Quantum Knowledge, and what’s inside.
Outer Wilds: How to Get into the Tower of Quantum Knowledge
The Tower of Quantum Knowledge is sealed off when you arrive at Brittle Hollow, making it impossible to access from the planet. Instead, you’ll need to follow these steps to get inside. Here’s how to access the Tower of Quantum Knowledge:
- Land on the roof of the tower.
- Fire a scout onto the surface of Brittle Hollow to monitor the surface integrity.
- As Hollow's Lantern gets more and more violent, the surface will crumble, and the entire tower, and you along with it will fall into the black hole below.
- Make sure you are in your ship when this happens. At the White Hole side, fly into the Tower.
