How to save in Hogwarts Legacy?

First off, head into the pause menu in Hogwarts Legacy. From there, enter the Settings tab. This tab can be accessed by scrolling through the menu with either LB/RB or L1/R1, depending on whether you are on an Xbox or PlayStation console.

The first settings option that should be seen is the ‘Save/Load and Exit’ section. Select ‘Save Game,’ and users should see a slew of empty save slots.

One can either choose an empty slot to save the file, or move the cursor over a file that is already present. Then, press and hold A/X on the file to overwrite. Should you want to delete a save file, perform the same action with the cursor, but hold down on Y/Triangle instead.

If you want to load a save file, look up one rung in the ‘Save/Load and Exit’ menu to find ‘Load Game.’ Here, users will find all the manually saves files, as well as autosaves.
