As you play through Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, the question of how to save your game progress will undoubtedly come up. Like other games available right now, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice offers an integrated auto-save mechanic that will keep track of everything for you.
This is great for those who can’t be bothered to save manually, but can also cause a bit of anxiety when it comes to keeping track of where the game has decided to auto-save. To help clear everything up, we’ve put together a guide explaining how to save in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice!
How to Save in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
As noted above, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice keeps track of your progress through a regular series of auto-save events. Almost everything you do in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will trigger the auto-save mechanic from completing a battle to entering a new area or resting at various Sculptor’s Idols.
For gamers who prefer to have a hand in how and where the game saves progress, there’s also a “manual save” feature in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice. To manually save your game, you’ll first need to hit the Menu button on Xbox One, Options on PlayStation 4, or Esc on PC. Next, expand the Options section and towards the bottom, locate and select “Quit Game.”
By shutting everything down through this menu, you’ll trigger a save right before you exit the game. In a way, this also plays into the auto-save feature, though it also helps relieve some of the anxiety that comes with having an internal auto-save mechanic.
