How To Open the Door in Dr Leonard’s Office in The Day Before

Before the start of early access, many players believed that the launch of The Day Before would be a huge, messy bug-fest. And to be perfectly frank, the very first playable moment in the game wasn’t exactly encouraging in that regard. Namely, the first moment we start controlling our character, we will encounter the door not opening bug in The Day Before. When you collect your stuff and try to leave Dr Leonard’s office, the door will not open. You approach them, the “F” button will appear, and the “action loading” animation will prompt. Nevertheless, the door will remain closed. So, how to open the first door in the game?

It sounds strange, but you must position your character so that he is facing slightly to the right of the door. When in that position, press F and the door will open. It’s a really strange bug and an even stranger solution. But hey, it works! It’s definitely not an ideal first impression, but we will keep playing. If you have trouble with any other entrances in the game, the process of opening them will probably be the same.

You will probably notice the same issue if you try talking with Dr Leonard after your initial conversation. If you approach him and press F, chances are high that nothing will happen. The procedure here is exactly the same. You will need to position yourself so that you face slightly to the right of the doctor. Only in that position will the interaction be triggered. Hopefully, we will not need to do it for every character in the game. And the developer, Fntastic, will hopefully patch out this bug as soon as possible. With that said, our “How To Open Door & Talk to Dr Leonard The Day Before” guide is completed.
