Does Dying Light 2 Stay Human have auto-save?

In any action RPG survival horror title, knowing how to save your game is pretty important, especially in a game such as this one where things can seemingly go sour at a moment's notice. Within the first minutes into the game, however, players might notice that there's no obvious way to manually save. As such, here's a breakdown on whether or not Dying Light 2 Stay Human has auto-save.

Does Dying Light 2 Have Auto-Save?

In Dying Light 2, you indeed cannot save your game manually, despite the fact that you can have multiple playthroughs. You can have just one save slot per playthrough, which means that you can’t undo any of the key decisions you make.

This is because Dying Light 2 uses an auto-save system only.

While this is a bit of a sketchy design choice, the auto-save feature itself thankfully appears to be reliable.

There are a handful of auto-save triggers that players can rely on in Dying Light 2.

First and foremost, the game auto-saves each time you complete a quest or objective, so there's likely no instance where completed missions and progress go by the wayside on accident.

Secondarily, however, there are two other instances where the auto-save feature kicks in.

One is by sleeping in a bed (aka Resting Place) at any of the Safe Zones across the map, which are marked with green icons.

The other is by fast traveling, albeit the feature isn’t unlocked until later in the game.

Dying Light 2 Stay Human is available now for PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Windows PC (via Steam, Epic Games Store and Techland Store).
