Hogwarts Legacy is far from a short game, with its main story clocking in at around 25 hours and side content pushing that total up toward the 50-hour mark. With this in mind, figuring out how to save the game should be right at the top of most players' to-do lists, as very few people will be able to complete the main story in a single sitting.
As with most modern video games, Hogwarts Legacy does include an autosave feature but given how unpredictable these can be, many players will likely prefer to make their own manual saves. This can not only be useful for saving progress, but also for providing players with a way to replay certain sections of the game without having to start again from the very beginning.
Thankfully, creating a manual save in Hogwarts Legacy is incredibly straightforward and can be done at just about any point outside of cut-scenes. To save the game, players will simply need to press the pause button, which, by default, will take them to the "Save/Load and Exit" tab. From here, they'll be able to save or load the game, exit to the main menu, or restart from the last checkpoint.
How Many Save Slots Are There in Hogwarts Legacy?
During a normal playthrough, players will have access to ten save slots. This may seem like a lot at first, but given that there are more than 40 main story missions in Hogwarts Legacy, players may want to use these sparingly, creating a new file every four or five missions. Of course, some may only want access to the last few missions, in which case, they can just create a new save whenever they need to and then overwrite older files once they start to run out of space.
Can I Create More Than One Character in Hogwarts Legacy?
Unlike a lot of other video games with character creation options, Hogwarts Legacy players will be able to create multiple characters. To be more precise, players will be able to have up to four different characters on their system at any given time, allowing them to have a character in all four of the Hogwarts houses. Each of these characters will have ten save slots available to them, meaning that there are technically forty save slots in total.
Hogwarts Legacy is available now on PS5, Xbox Series S|X, and PC. PS4, Xbox One, and Switch versions are currently in development.
