Valheim: How To Save Game Progress

Saving in survival games is absolutely vital.

Valheim is no different.

It may not be entirely clear at first how to do so.

You're probably sitting there wondering whether to quit, but maybe that will erase all your hard work?

How To Save Game Progress

Saving in Valheim is as easy as pie.

Simply exit the game as you normally would:

  • Press the “Esc” key.
  • Select “Quit.”
  • Select “Yes.”

Doing this will automatically save your location and progress.

Unlike many other titles where you have to reach a checkpoint or sleep in a bed, Valheim doesn't require this.

Great news for those of us who constantly forget to save.

The only downside to this system is that players can't return to a previous save if they wish to.

Well, Vikings couldn't do it, so why should we, right?

Keep in mind Valheim is in early access so this could change in the future.

Right now this seems like a simple and easy way for players to save and we love it.

Valheim is the next Viking title to take Steam by storm, there are plenty of plans for the future with the 2021 roadmap. You can even set up a dedicated server and play with your friends in coop! If bosses interest you, there's already four in the game Eikthyr, the Elder, Bonemass and Modor, you'll require plenty of items along the way like the Swamp Key.
