i have the exact same issue and its the first problem i run into playing the game so far.
@babaleas hey buddy i know the fix, change your grahpics and it will work. I changed from Low to Medium and the issue was resolved. We must help eachother when support is not
@teaboxmlg let me know if u find a solution, ill be doing likewise
@ubikoreanbbq Thanks for your time and for reporting the bug towards the team!
after finishing jotumheim quest line u will have the barrier unlocked.
@ultimized so without you i wouldve been stuck still since support has not yet resolved my ticket. i appreciate you alot.
@crispykibbles changing your graphic settings will solve this.
@ultimized did u save at great hall or how did u access it? i only use auto save
@kuratoro can confirm changing resulution worked for me and countless others. enjoy
@ultimized understandable to have bugs in a large game like this, as long as issues get resolved quite fast it should be fine, im going 6+ hours soon and not yet fixed which should not be the case on release for a singleplayer game
@ultimized i have 22 hours played on this save and im stuck in a quest scenario with 0 availability to escape to do anything else as you cannot cancel or disband a quest which would solve it for me.
@ubikoreanbbq im using PC, i dont have a save to use at all been using auto save entire time. I've waited 5 hours i can wait more
