How to save and exit in Lies of P

To save and exit from the very spot you are standing in Lies of P, you'll need to visit the settings menu.

This can be found as the furthest right option where you find your equipment storage and change your belt and bag slots. From the Settings menu, you can exit the game by switching to the far right option, labelled Exit (shocking, right?).

Once you find the Exit section, it is simply a matter of selecting Title Screen and confirming your choice. This will send you back to the main menu of Lies of P, from which you can then close the game and turn off your console.

It's important to save your progress in Lies of P because the game is challenging enough as it is. The last thing you want is to have to repeat a tough combat sequence or boss battle.

If you find yourself struck with the need to stop the game for pizza or have an annoying kid/sibling/parent seeking your immediate attention, there is a way around it. Better still, you can turn off your console or PC with the confidence that you'll continue from where you left off.

As simple as it is, that's all you need to know about saving and exiting Lies of P! For more assistance with the game, let us talk you through which combat style to choose. We've also got the trophy and achievement list compiled for the completionists among you!
