Alright, so you've been through Skye Larsen's home and infiltrated Blume Tower, and killed the small army she had defending her. You've reached Skye Larsen, heard her beg and plead with you to spare her life and upload her. What do you do? Is there any consequence to picking one over the other?

The short answer is no. Picking either choice does not influence the outcome of the game, or the storyline, in any way. So ultimately, you can go with your gut feeling. If you feel sympathetic to Skye, upload her to the cloud. If you agree with Nowt, kill her.

Picking either option does change the ensuing dialogue somewhat though. If you kill her, Nowt is glad and Bagley will suggest taking a selfie with the corpse, in his charming British ways. Nowt will decline to work with DedSec in future, before changing her mind and showing up at the safehouse.

If you upload her, Nowt is furious, as expected. She swears at you a bit, reminds you of Skye Larsen's horrors, then hangs up on you. Don't worry though, because she rings back a few minutes later and apologises. She'll still end up in the safehouse, giving you 404 contracts.

Also, when you finish the mission, you'll see a news video explaining that Daybreak — the software created by Skye — is being shut down by Blume anyway, so she dies nonetheless. Happy endings all around!

Give me a game and I will write every "how to" I possibly can or die trying. When I'm not knee-deep in a game to write guides on, you'll find me hurtling round the track in F1, flinging balls on my phone in Pokemon Go, pretending to know what I'm doing in Football Manager, or clicking on heads in Valorant.
