Out now on PS4, Xbox One and PC, A Plague Tale: Innocence thrusts you into medieval France, in the midst of the Black Death.
Death and danger surround you at every turn – and with this being a video game, that means saving your game regularly. So how do you save in A Plague Tale?
Whether for better or for worse, A Plague Tale has no functionality to let you manually save. Everything is handled by the game’s autosave system, so you have to trust in your game, and your machine, to save your progress at every turn.
Thankfully, A Plague Tale: Innocence‘s autosave feature is very robust. If you mess up, or god forbid your machine crashes, you should never lose more than a few minutes of progress. Autosave points in the game are generously distributed. Each new area, each cutscene, and each new gameplay plot will give you a save point before and after, so you don’t have to worry about having to retrace your steps.
The game also updates your autosave file every time you use a workbench, so be sure to interact with one every time you pass, even if you don’t need to upgrade or craft anything.
