Dragon’s Dogma 2 only offers one save slot at a time so it’s best to ensure that you’re happy with your Arisen before progressing any further. If you’re looking to change your character and start a fresh adventure, here’s how to delete your save in Dragon’s Dogma 2 on all Steam, PS5, & Xbox.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 excels in many areas but the game does suffer from some problems, including the lack of a New Game option to start a playthrough with a new character. The game offers just a single save slot for players to use and there’s also no easy way to delete it. This can be infuriating for those looking to create a new character and start from scratch.

Fortunately, you can get rid of a save manually and start a brand-new playthrough. So, here’s how to delete your Dragon’s Dogma 2 save on Steam, PS5 & Xbox.
