How to Save Your Game in Stray

Wondering how to save your game in Stray? Here’s everything you need to know.

Stray, out now and available to play on PS Plus Extra at no extra cost, sees you running through a futuristic world as a four-legged feline. We loved our time with it, and we’re confident plenty others will too. But there’s one thing you need to know when playing Stray: how to save your game. The short answer? You can’t.

There’s no manual save function in Stray, and so, technically, there’s no way to save your game. But don’t let that worry you – there’s a robust autosave system in place.

Head in the menu and you’ll find no “save” option; only the option to quit your game. Thankfully, the autosave system will create a save of your game every few minutes. That means you’re save to quit at just about any point, and you’ll never lose much progress.

During stealth sections, we found that if we turned off the game or restarted from the previous checkpoint, we’d get taking back to the beginning of the stealth section. That meant backtracking no more than three or four minutes. Elsewhere, Stray seems to save after every interaction and event. So if you’re simply running through the world, you might not start again in the exact same position, but your story progress will remain in tact.

And that’s all there is to know. Yes, we hate not having a manual save option for peace of mind, too. But Stray‘s autosave is reliable enough that it shouldn’t be a problem.
