Door will not open at Chapter 17

★★★★ Novice
Hello all. I have recently came across a bug about 3 - 4 days ago which has been really annoying! I know that for one, I'm not the only person having this problem because I saw a YouTube comment about that too. It's the door which you have to enter the alien word, Open. It's the big circular door, Its opposite the elevator and it has a big alien beside it. Sorry if in going around the bush on this. But thanks in advance!

Hi fngdevin9086!


Can you please provide us the information on what kind of system you are playing DSIII? (PC or console)


During Dead Space 3 gameplay, if you become "stuck" at a door that will not finish loading, simply pause your game and attempt to restart from the last checkpoint, or "Continue from Last Save."

If the problem persists and the door does not load after Continuing from your Last Save, attempt restarting the entire chapter using Chapter Select. The door should load correctly upon this restart.


Keep us updated!

Same here. I m on PS3. Restart the check point and restart the game. The door where u rotate 3 symbols to match the pattern on the floor and play it back.

Edit:NVM, u have to press X on the controller. There was no sign of instruction to open the door so I couldn't figure it out, lol
