Here you can see how to save and info on the save feature in Genshin Impact. See if you can use the same save across PC, Mobile, and PS4, and find out more about the cross save and cross-progression feature available in the game.
List of Contents
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 can be found within the Temples encountered as part of the story. Unlike other locations in the game, players cannot quit the game within a Temple and restart from the same point, so these checkpoints are provided to allow players the option to quit midway through.
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 Temple without reaching any checkpoint, you will start the game again at the point before you entered the temple.
Currently, only players of Genshin Impact on PC or Mobile devices will be able to use cross-saves between the two platforms. PS4 players will not be able to send save files to other platforms. It is also currently unknown if PS5 will allow cross saving of any kind. So if you prefer the ability to play the game on the go as well as at home, PC and Mobile is the way to go.
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.
Crossplay is available for all systems that can run Genshin Impact. This includes PC, mobile, PS4, and will be supported on PS5 as well. For more information on crossplay and how it works, check out the guide below.
For PC and Mobile players, all you need to do to cross save is to use the same email address on both devices and select the same server. With that you are easily able to play at home or on the go.
