How to save in Diablo 4

Diablo 4 will save your progress automatically during your gameplay. Your progress will be saved on the game's server so you don't have to do anything manually. Your loot, items, and the enemy slain numbers you've acquired so far will be considered as saved progress in-game. Plus, when the game saves, your progress is constantly saved and updated in real time, so you won't have to worry about performing a manual save.

Though if you plan to prematurely end your gaming session, there is a way to manually save in Diablo 4. You'd have to open the game's menu and select "Save and Quit." That's the only alternative you have to save your game manually.


In terms of loading your save file, Diablo 4 offers you the option to either continue where the autosave left off, or you can pick a manual save you've made in the past. This is quite helpful if you want to experience different builds and story directions in Diablo 4. Just make sure you make the right decision before you hit play on a specific save file. That way you won't have any regrets!

In Diablo 4, checkpoints are available at certain stages, which allow you to pick up where you left off. Checkpoints help players in terms of convenience, so if you've accomplished a lot in a certain stage, checkpoints make sure you don't have to go through accomplishing them again. Therefore, they'll save as you go.

Overall, it's pretty easy to save in Diablo 4. You have the autosave feature and a manual one so you won't have to worry much about losing your progress! For more guides like this, you can check out our other pieces such as our guide on the main villain in Diablo 4 and our Diablo 4 Butcher guide.
