How to Save Your Game in Resident Evil Village

To save your game in Resident Evil Village you have two main options:

  1. Reach autosave points in the story
  2. Use typewriters found around the map

The first option is easy, as it will trigger automatically as you play. For typewriters you will need to find them. We'll detail some locations later on in this article.

How Does Auto-Saving Work

Resident Evil Village will autosave at certain points. You'll see a white/light blue circle icon in the top left of the screen when this happens, indicating that you have triggered a checkpoint and your game will be saved. If you die or quit the game, you will continue from this point, handy for boss fights and other tricky areas.

Typewriter Locations

Players can Manually Save in Village by using Typewriters located all over the map. As you reveal more of the map in Resident Evil Village you will see typewriter icons. These indicate save points. To avoid spoiling later locations, we'll say that there is a typewriter in the church in the opening area. This is easily reachable and will likely be the one you use the most.
