God of War is an incredible game, but if there’s one criticism that can be levelled at Sony Santa Monica’s latest, it’s the release’s save system. While it’s perfectly adequate if you only plan to play on a single save, you can seriously risk losing progress if you start a New Game. As part of our God of War guide, we're going to explain how to create multiple game saves.
God of War: How to Create Multiple Game Saves
God of War has an auto-save system which means that it’s constantly documenting your progress as you progress, and overwriting earlier saves the further into the campaign you get. However, if you start a New Game, your old progress will be overwritten.
To create multiple game saves you need to create Manual Saves. To do this, push the Options button to bring up the pause menu and then press Triangle to access the game’s options. Scroll to Save and create a new Manual Save. This will never be overwritten unless you specifically want it to be. You need to repeat this process for every new game file you start, because relying on auto-save means that your progress will be lost.
