You can fix it by leaving the game on for a few hours and waiting for the door to spawn. Thanks to user u/mathaav on Reddit for confirming that this fix works. You can check the entire thread here.

  • Wait for the door to load: Many Reddit users have fixed this problem by just leaving the game on. This is a very odd and inconsistent fix that works for both PS4 & PS5. So if you don’t mind leaving the game on overnight, or while you carry on with other chores. You should have no problem fixing it.
  • Restart from the last checkpoint: While this fix sucks but it is at least better than being stuck in one place. You can hope that restarting from the last checkpoint triggers something in the game that makes it work normally. This is a problem as players from both consoles are having this issue and it resolves in a different number of tries. So it might work in one try, or you might have to keep reloading for quite some time until it works.
  • Restart your console: Rebooting your PS4 or PS5 and then trying to play might help fix this bug. Once your console is on, load from the last checkpoint to see if the door spawns.
  • Reinstall the game: This is another fix that you can try as a last resort. The game isn’t letting you progress any further so you might as well reinstall it and see if it helps.

If the above fixes don’t work then you will have no choice but to wait for the developers to release an update fixing the Yggdrasil tree for this mission.
