The following message is from Adrian Murphy, Sr. Producer @ Irrational Games.
We’ve been looking into the Burial at Sea – Episode One issues with the securis door never opening, and believe we have a potential fix for it. I say potential because we have not completed our internal testing on this fix to make sure the issue is addressed and nothing else has been affected. In the interest of allowing those who are unable to play to get back to enjoying Burial at Sea, we are making this fix available via an opt in beta over Steam.
This is a PC only beta, so MAC USERS SHOULD NOT OPT IN! Mac users who opt into this beta will not be able to play, so please avoid doing so.
*** Please Note*** - As this is an untested fix, those who opt into the beta branch are doing so voluntarily and understand that the issue at hand may still occur, and/or other unforeseen issues may arise as a result of the changes made in this build. We cannot guarantee this as final working code, and as such we are making it available for opt in only,so those who are willing to help us test the issue can do so, without affecting everyone who currently has Burial at Sea – Episode One.
The beta branch is called “burial_at_sea_beta - PC only - Beta - Burial at Sea”. In order to access the opt in beta, you will need to follow these steps:
- In Steam, go to your Games Library.
- Right-click “BioShock Infinite”, and select “Properties”.
- On the “BETAS” tab, select “burial_at_sea_beta - PC only - Beta - Burial at Sea” from the drop-down.
- The download should begin immediately, but click “CLOSE” to dismiss the window.
- After the download is complete, launch the game as normal.
For those that do opt in to the beta, if you are still experiencing the securis door issue, or see any other issues arise after installing the beta, please respond to the thread with any and all information you can provide. Again, we’d like to thank everyone for their patience with this bug, and also thank you for potentially taking the time to help us test this fix.
