Genshin Impact - Cross Save Guide
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.

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 Temples

Genshin - Checkpoints in Temples

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.

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 Temple without reaching any checkpoint, you will start the game again at the point before you entered the temple.

Cross Save and Crossplay Availability

Cross Saving is Only Available Between PC and Mobile

Genshin - Play with the same save on PC and Mobile

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.

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

How to Cross Save
