Being able to save in any game, especially in Diablo 4, can make a huge difference in one’s experience. The amount of content in Diablo 4 and RPGs, in general, can translate to dozens or even hundreds of playtime hours. Each game has its own progression rules, and there exist several unique ways to being able to save your progress. The last thing we want is to build the best character, with the best class possible, to lose our progress. Here is how to save your progression in Diablo 4.
How Do You Save Progress in Diablo 4?
You need not worry about saving your progress in Diablo 4. For further clarification, there is no way to manually save your game or progress in Diablo 4. This is because your game constantly saves while you are playing. This is thanks to the constant connection between your game and Blizzard’s servers. In other words, Diablo 4 will save your game in real-time. So you won’t have to worry about anything before quitting.
There are limits to this, of course. While your character’s inventory and loot will be automatically saved, any dungeon progression interrupted by closing the game will be reset. Any items you have collected will be saved, but the actual dungeon progression will be lost. Everything else will be retained automatically in Diablo 4.
Two mechanics support this auto-save feature as you’re playing Diablo 4. First of all, we have the Auto Loot Pickup. This is a security measure that ensures your character will pick any rare items that are on the ground if the player disconnects.
Then, you have the inclusion of the Scroll of Escape. This helps your character travel automatically to any main city once you collect it. Also, if the player disconnects, the character will be automatically sent to a main city. This ensures your character won’t die if you are in a dangerous area if a disconnection occurs.
Accordingly, you can concentrate on playing and defeating the enemy forces in Sanctuary. Diablo 4 will take care of retaining your game’s progress on your save file. Just be sure to have a stable internet connection. You can use an Ethernet cable to ensure its stability and prevent any disconnections or time-outs.
Diablo 4 is available now on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, and Windows.
