SPOILER WARNING – This walkthrough documents activity that takes place around 5 hours into God of War III. There are minor spoilers.
One of the most head-scratching sequences in God of War III is the puzzle found in Olympus Gardens, which, as well as being a maze, requires you to view bridges and stairs from another perspective in order to progress. Think Echochrome and you’ve got the idea.
The first time you’re required to use the emerald from Hera’s Chalice to warp your perspective is pretty simple, simply requiring that you walk downwards, lower the gate and walk back up the newly formed staircase on the left hand side.
But the second puzzle is slightly more confusing, requiring that you push the pillar and use Hera’s body to weigh. Firstly, burn the brambles using Kratos’ Bow of Apollo, then head back to the top right of the map and grab the pillar. Push it over to the far left section of the area, and activate the statue’s gaze by stepping on the pressure point by Hera’s body. Water should rush down and fill the cup.Next, grab hold of the pillar again and push it down to the bottom right of the map, turning it twice using the right stick. Push it all the way to the bottom and the camera should pull back to confirm that it’s in position.
Activate the pressure point again, and pick up Hera’s body. You’ll have to move her over to the staircase you’ve just formed before dropping her into the cup.
Once you’ve done that, wait for the gaze effect to time out, then grab the pillar and push it over to the pressure plate. This then gives you plenty of time to jump over the gate to the south and work your way up the staircases and out of the maze.
And if you’re still stuck, use the video below for a visual walkthrough.
