Subnautica: Below Zero isn’t a game you’re going to complete in one, so it’s important to save your game. Here’s how to do that.
In theory, saving your game in Subnautica: Below Zero is simple. In practice, there are a couple of snags. First of all, when it comes to saving your game, you need to do the following:
- Hit the menu button.
- Select and hit the save option.
Easy, right? The snag is that you absolutely need to do this before you quit. Below Zero does not save your game. Yes, if you die, you end up back in your base or vehicle. But it won’t save your game for when you come back. On the Xbox Series S/X, at least, Below Zero doesn’t support Quick Resume, so manual saving is essential.
Unfortunately, you can’t load while playing Subnautica: Below Zero, you need to quit to the main menu. Then, select play and choose your saved game and it’ll load up.
You also only have one save slot per playthrough, though you can have multiple playthroughs. So if you forget something in a deep cave, and have saved your game since then, you can’t reload and grab whatever you didn’t pick up.
Still, save before you quit and you should have an alien whale of a time with Subnautica: Below Zero.
