Welcome to the New World Walkthrough


Cast Away

As Arthur Morgan (you), continue your walk from the last mission, holding the L3/LS up to continue walking. Do so until eventually, a "look at smoke" button prompts, alerting you of the smoke further up on the left. Proceed towards it and you will find yourself in front of Dutch Van Der Linde, Bill Williamson, Javier Escuella, and Micah Bell. They help you out and give you some water, then you all try to come up with a plan to get off the island. But before you can get too far into it, you're surrounded by Spanish-speaking men in uniforms.

You all promptly get put into a chain-gang by the surrounding men and are forced to walk along the beach with the soldiers. A man on a horse walks along you and tries to get information as to who you are. Dutch gives a fake alias as you all walk. You bump into another group of captives who get added to the front of your chain gang. After some conversation, the man leaves and leaves you to walk with the guards and captives.


In the Jungle

Shortly after walking a bit more, the some of the surrounding guards will get shot down from the jungle. You leap to the closest one's corpse and steal the keys to free yourself, before passing them to your friends and grabbing the Cattleman Revolver on the corpse as well. Provide cover fire for your team by killing the remaining guards. A man and more captives will emerge from the jungle and tell you to follow them, but as you make your escape Javier is shot in the leg and tells you to go on without him.

Do so, and the man who rescued you will introduce himself as Hercule. He will also tell you about the slavery he is trying to abolish on the island and what he does. After following him for a bit, you'll be lead to a crate of weapons to defend against the oncoming soldiers. You are given a Bolt Action Rifle. Use it to kill the oncoming soldiers until they begin to retreat. Once this happens, Hercule will thank you for your help and will offer you an escape from the island in exchange for some help.
