It seems obvious that is has something to do with the bottles on the shelves behind the safe. I don't know if it's due to my brightness configuration (perhaps too dark), but I wasn't able to see anything over there, or to find any item in the bottles... So where is the combination ?

The code you're looking for is behind the bottles. enter image description here

The first key code combination in LGS games, and since their demise companies who follow on in their spirit, is 451 or a variant thereof (e.g. 45100). This is a reference to Fahrenheit 451.

This means you can guess the combination quickly without even looking!

This tradition started in System Shock 1 and is followed by System Shock 2, Deus Ex, BioShock and now Dishonored :)

Oow, I had no idea about that ! Any idea about how that idea came to them ? I couldn't find anything on the web. – Anto Jan 7 '13 at 15:52

Have you look this video on Youtube?

Great, the video confirms that my brightness is way too low: I was unable to see a thing back there on the shelves. Thanks a lot :) – Anto Oct 13 '12 at 15:19
@Anto No problem but why you have removed the accepted answer ? – Warface Oct 18 '12 at 15:36
The other seemed more direct and clear than "look at this video" ;) – Anto Oct 18 '12 at 15:58

Thats all wrong. The code is 528. Look at the note it says 3 months. Month of wind, month of seeds, and month of ice. Thats the order. In the book you will see different months all saying the month of whatever. And each month starting with wind is 5, seeds is 2, and ice is 8. Therefore the code is 528. I put it in myself and it opened.

You're thinking of a different safe. – Studoku Aug 31 '14 at 21:23
Yeah, definitely. Or perhaps it's different on other supports (console ?) – Anto Aug 31 '14 at 23:30
This is the combination for the safe in the final part of the game – Matteo Mar 12 '15 at 22:09
