Saving the Game – The Last Guardian
After you’ve burned yourself out solving puzzle after puzzle in the ruins present in The Last Guardian, you’re probably going to want to take a break and save your game before stopping. However, the game’s menus don’t offer you a proper ‘save game’ function. Instead, your progress will be auto-saved each time you reach a new checkpoint, and you can restart from your latest checkpoint whenever you jump back into the game next.
As a general rule of thumb, your progress will be saved whenever you complete a puzzle segment. You’ll be able to tell when you’ve reached the end of a puzzle as the boy and Trico will usually leap out of your current area and bring you to a new one. Game progress will also be saved at the end of each major combat encounter. One thing to note about the game is that you can’t have multiple save slots for a single playthrough. This means that once you’ve completed a puzzle, you won’t be able to reload a previous save file to play through it again. Instead, you’ll have to start a fresh game.
Since you can’t manually save, whenever you’re ready to pick up from where you left off, simply boot up the game and choose the Continue option on the title screen.
