How to save in Cyberpunk 2077

Always manually save!

Are you ready to explore the Night City? Though always remember that progress has to be saved as you're starting your binge of Cyberpunk 2077! Losing progress, everybody hates, so keep on top of saving.

How to save in Cyberpunk 2077

To save in Cyberpunk 2077, all you need to is to pull up the main options menu by pressing Esc if playing on PC or by pressing Options/Start if playing on console. Navigate to Save Game, then either select a new file or override an already existing file, and your game will be saved.

There is a quick save option for both PC and console users. For PC players, if you are using a mouse and keyboard, all you have to do is press F5, which will automatically quicksave the game. Console gamers, you have to open up the main options menu by pressing Options/Start on the controller, then hit Triangle or Y, depending on what console you are using. Remember, you can only have a single quicksave save slot, so every time you quicksave, it will overwrite the existing one.

Cyberpunk 2077 has an autosave checkpoint system, but like most games with this, you shouldn't rely on it. Autosaves are pretty infrequent, so always manually save the game, as you don't want any progress to be lost! The Autosaves are handy if your game crashes or freezes, and you might only lose a bit of progress; however, upon loading the game back up, we would recommend saving!

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.
