Palworld has a huge open world that you can explore, but what if you forget to save your game as you take in all the sights around the Palpagos Islands and end up losing your progress? To prevent that, here’s all you need to know about how to save in Palworld.

Palworld has an exciting world with tons of activities like catching Pals, engaging in fights with them, cooking food, upgrading your gear, and exploring dungeons, caves, forests, mountains, and deserts while scavenging for or mining resources like coal and sulfur.

However, it is important to make sure that your progress is as your journey progresses so that you don’t lose out on all the time you’ve put into building a base and collecting resources as well as ingredients, and get to keep all the Pals you’ve defeated and caught.

So, here’s everything you need to know about saving in Palworld.

How to save your progress in Palworld

Palworld has an autosaving feature that keeps saving your progress every few minutes, so you don’t have to worry about manually saving from time to time. The game does not, however, have manual saving, so there’s no feature that lets you save the game at desired points and reload whenever you want.

You’ll have to rely on the autosaving feature to save your progress as well as achievements, as you can’t turn it off or customize the timing between each autosave. Every time your game is autosaved, an icon will appear at the top of your screen to let you know the game has been saved.

How to safely quit in Palworld

If you want to make sure you’re safely quitting Palworld without any danger of losing your progress, always quit the game using the in-game options. You can either use Return to Title or Exit the Game, which you can access by pressing the escape key.

You’ll have to be careful whenever you’re engaging in short-term activities like boss fights or resource collection, where force-quitting your game without autosaving can force you to restart before the boss fight, or with fewer resources.
