The Save Game menu provides the ability to save the current game process and lists all manual saved game files.

Overview[edit | edit source]

While it may seem obvious what the save game menu does, the technical details of the process aren't explained.

There are five types of save games: autosave, chapter, loyalty, manual, and mission.

A small symbol Autosave Icon.png will appear in the lower right corner of the screen whenever one of the four types of automatic save is taking place - autosave, chapter, loyalty, and mission.

In the Save Game menu, ONLY the manual type save files appear. To view the four other types, you have to go the Load Game menu.

Each save game entry will list the save type, the date, and the time of the save. Save games are sorted with the newest saves at the top.

Selecting a save game from the list will give additional details: Name, Level, Location Details, Game Completion, and total elapsed Time Played. A large picture will display in the circular central area relating to the mission/location details.

New Save Game[edit | edit source]

There is an empty slot at the top of the list designated as "New Empty Slot". This is the slot used for creating new manual saves.

Overwrite Save Game[edit | edit source]

Selecting a save game and then trying to save over an existing save will bring up the Overwrite Save Game screen. This allows you to confirm or deny this action.

Manual Saves[edit | edit source]

These are the main save files used to save game progression. This function can be chosen at most points in the game based on personal preference. There are times where manual saving is disabled.
