Can you have multiple save files in Dragon’s Dogma 2? Capcom promises a world of adventure, with plenty to discover, and a wealth of time to discover it in. If you’re spoilt for choice though, you might be tempted to have a few save files on the go, depending on your mood.

You’re encouraged to unearth discoveries by taking your time, trekking across the Dragon’s Dogma 2 map as your choice of DD2 vocation. For those wanting to share their copy of Dragon’s Dogma 2 with other household members, it could be a practical desire to split your save from your friend’s. Whether it’s possible or not is a different story altogether.

Can you have multiple save files in Dragon’s Dogma 2?

No, you cannot have more than one save file in Dragon’s Dogma 2. The only way to play with another save file is to launch the game using a different profile.

Hideaki Itsuno, director of Dragon’s Dogma 2, hopes that the limitation in save files and indeed moments where you can physically save the game will encourage players to think twice before making bold decisions. “I really wanted to encourage the thrill of exploration,” he comments in the interview, “That was the thinking behind the limit.” Encounters like the Dragon’s Dogma 2 Sphinx that can only occur once wouldn’t have the same feeling if you could simply reload your save.

Capcom patched the game shortly after launch, making it easy to delete your Dragon’s Dogma 2 save without having to jump through several hoops. All you need to do is pick New Game from the main menu and right away you can start again from the character creation page.

Dragon’s Dogma 2 Save Manager

There is a way to sneak around the one save file limit on PC, all you need to do is head to our Dragon’s Dogma 2 mods guide. The Save Manager mod gives you everything you need to run multiple characters at once, though if you use our guides effectively, you should only need to rely on one save.

So, you can’t share your copy of Dragon’s Dogma 2 with anyone else in the house, but can you play alongside them? Sadly, Dragon’s Dogma 2 multiplayer is also lacking, but you can recruit your pals’ Dragon’s Dogma 2 Pawns, even though they’ll be controlled by AI.
