Want to learn how to save in Saints Row? This upcoming reboot of Voilition's classic crime series is bringing the gameplay up to modern expectations, so you can expect the save process to be even more streamlined than before. After all, there's nothing worse than completing a long-winded mission, turning off your console, and realising you forgot to save.
In this Saints Row guide, we'll break down exactly how you save your game progress. Not only does this ensure you don't lose out on progression by accidentally quitting the game, but it'll also help you know whether any mid-mission checkpoints are there to save you from having to completely replay a level if you die during it.
How do I save in Saints Row?
Luckily, you don't need to manually save in Saints Row. Instead, everything works via autosave, which is fast becoming par for the course in modern triple-A gaming.
As such, during a mission the game will automatically save at pre-determined checkpoints. This ensures that if you do die during a battle, you'll go back to the most recent checkpoint rather than all the way at the start of the mission.
Alongside that, it means you don't have to manually save your progress via the menus each time you switch the game off. Instead, most significant events or progressions will have an autosave point to make sure you never miss out on anything.

Even better, it's very easy to spot when a save is in progress in Saints Row. After completing an objective or immediately following a cutscene, a small 'Saving' message will appear in the top right corner of your screen. It's at that specific point where the game performs an autosave. Therefore, be sure not to turn off your console or close the game during those moments, or your save could well be lost.
Aside from that though, knowing how to save in Saints Row isn't rocket science. In fact, it's incredibly straightforward - and likely not something you'll ever need to do manually. It's likely that there will be some sort of manual save in the game, just in case you want to make several save files before a branching decision, for example. We'll have to wait and see what the full game looks like before knowing for sure.
That's it for our guide on how to save in Saints Row!
