How to Save Your Game in Red Dead Redemption 2
Red Dead Redemption 2 is likely going to take up a huge chunk of your time. With its beautiful vistas, engaging story, and interesting characters, there’s no shortage of things to do in this world. Rockstar Games really does have a lot in store for us with Red Dead Redemption 2. One thing you absolutely don’t want is to get caught in a situation where you forgot to save – You might lose some progress. Not to worry: We’re here to help! Here’s how to save in Red Dead Redemption 2.
Is there auto save?
Er…kinda. There are checkpoints, but you might want to manually save when quitting, to avoid any issues. This is especially true when you’re just out exploring, as there may be fewer chances for auto save. The safest way to trigger an auto save is to make your way back to camp or some place with a bed, and go to sleep for any amount of time. This will ensure that you have an auto save. Otherwise, it can be a bit spotty and it’s best to not end your session randomly while in the middle something if you want to be safe form losing progress.
How to manually save
But what about if you want to save manually? It’s easy! Press the Options button on PS4, or the Menu button on Xbox One, choose Story, then select Save Game. You can also exit your game from here. There are plenty of save files here to choose from, so feel free to keep a bunch of manual saves handy if you want.
Are there multiple save slots?
There are multiple save slots. You can also delete save slots, just like most modern open world games.
And that’s it! Hopefully this saves you some of the headache of figuring out how to save your game. It’s not complicated, by any means, but with a game as big as this, there’s no question that some of the nuances can get overwhelming.
