Saving your game is quite an easy task to accomplish in Cyberpunk 2077. Press the “Options” button for PlayStation 4, the “Start” button for Xbox One, or press “Esc” for PC.

Cyberpunk 2077 is all about making choices and facing the consequences. The game autosaves pretty frequently but, it’s good to manually save your progress from time to time. Autosaves get overridden after some time so a manual save file can help players load the previous stage of the game to make different choices or select different dialogue options.
