Does It Have Autosave?

Yes, the game does have an autosave feature that triggers each time you pass certain points in each chapter. It seems to be that the autosave is set off once you start a new chapter, learn a new piece of information, enter a new area, or have progressed past a significant part of the chapter you're playing.

You will be able to see when the game is autosaving as a small symbol that appears on your screen. The symbol is a variation of the classic Guardians of the Galaxy symbol. When the symbol is active try not to turn off your console. otherwise, the saving process will not be completed and you will lose your progress.

Does It Have Manual Save?

Yes, the game has a manual saving option too! All you need to do to access it is open up your pause menu and you will need to click on the "save game" bar. This will take you to 3 slots, which means you can have 3 different save game files at one time. Click on the slot you want to save your current game in and it will have manually saved it.
