Important: Saving your game in Dragon's Dogma 2

Saving game progress in Dragon's Dogma 2 looks different than in most games you know. There are only two slots for saving your game:

  • First Slot is Last Save, this save performed automatically in selected places or you can do it manualy by saving game yoursefl. Automatic Save will always owerwrite Last Save. So when you loading game from Last Save you will always get the latest, safe game state.
  • Second Slot: A Last Inn Rest Save, its made automatically when you rest in Inn. It is overwritten only when you rest in Inn again. It is not overwritten by the game prograss, it is always your last rest at the Inn. So if you want to save the game in a specific place, then go on an expedition, and then go back in time to the moment of sleep in the Inn, this is the option.

So if you want to go back to an earlier point in the game, you only have one saved game left, your Last Inn Rest, so make it carefully.

Now go to sleep at the Inn.
