This is an explanation of the save feature in Genshin Impact. To find out more about the cross-save feature available in the game, and how to save your game, we answer all your questions here.

How to Save Your Game

Auto-Save Feature Included

Genshin Impact features on auto-save system on all available platforms. Our team tested closing the applications from various locations around the world of the game, but we were always able to start again at the same place where we left off. As long as you quit the game using the available option from the menu, you will be able to start again at the same point without losing any progress.

Save Points are available inside Temples

Save Points 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 Save Points are provided to allow players the option to quit miday.

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

Are Cross Saves and Cross-Progression Available?

Only available between 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, so if you prefer the ability to play the game on the go as well as at home, PC or Mobile should prove to be a better choice.

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.
