How do you save the game manually in Red Dead Redemption 2? How do you load a game in Red Dead Redemption 2? The game doesn't do a great job of telling you that you can actually save your game manually whenever you want. It's perfectly possible to play through the entire thing with autosaves alone, but it's probably best to make a manual save now and then just to make sure that your progress is properly kept.

How to save the game manually in Red Dead Redemption 2

To save your game manually in Red Dead Redemption 2, you're going to have to head into the game's pause menu by pressing the options button on your controller. From here, scroll down to 'Story' and hit X. This is where you'll find the 'Save Game' and 'Load Game' options. Yeah, it took us a while to realise they were hiding away in there, too.

Selecting 'Save Game' will bring up a list of 15 available save slots. Selecting 'Load Game' lets you load from any of these slots, or your latest autosave. Easy!
