Genshin Impact - Cross Save Guide
Genshin Impact has an automatic save feature that saves your game progress. Find out how to use the same save across PC, Mobile, and PS4, and more info about the cross save feature in the game here!

How to Save Your Genshin Impact Game

Auto-Save Feature Included

Genshin - Save and Quit From the Paimon Menu

Genshin Impact features an auto-save system on all available platforms. This means you can close the game at any time from the Paimon Menu and your progress will not be lost!

Checkpoints are available inside Domains

Genshin - Checkpoints in Temples

Checkpoints can be found within the Domains encountered as part of the Main Story Quests. Unlike other locations in the game, players cannot quit the game within a Story Domain and restart from the same point, so these checkpoints are provided to allow players the option to quit midway through.

You can quit and come back

If you end the game after passing through one of these checkpoints, you will start again at the Save Point. If you quit the game during a Story Domain without reaching any checkpoint, you will start the game again at the point before you entered the Domain.

Cross Save and Crossplay Availability

Cross Saving is Available Between All Platforms

Genshin - Play with the same save on PC and Mobile

Since Version 2.0, players are now able to link their Playstation accounts to a separate e-mail address and use the same account on different platforms!

This means players can play with the same save on PC, iOS, Android, PS4 and PS5.

Version 2.0 Release Date & Patch Notes

Cross-saves on Switch

The Nintendo Switch version of the game has still not been released. As such, the possibility of cross-saves on the Switch is still up in the air. Since there's no guarantee that cross-saves will be available for the Switch, it's best to hold out for the Switch release for those who want to play on the Switch later on.

System Requirements and File Size

Crossplay Availability

Genshin Impact - Genshin Impact PS5 Cross Save
