What events will trigger an auto-save? This is so the player can better decide when to save manually.

1 Answer 1


I noticed that the game automatically saves:

  • After buying or selling from a store
  • When you have reached a checkpoint in a quest
  • When you have finished a quest
  • When you enter a quest area
  • After you liberate an outpost

Quest is defined here as a story-mission, a mission from the job board at outposts (hunting, assassination) or a Trial of the Rakyat challenge.

  • @Strike In my game (PC), I don't see the auto-save icon when I take a letter (collectible). Are you sure about that edit? What about the other collectibles? Dec 17, 2012 at 12:15
  • I just checked it ingame and I'm sorry to say that my edit is indeed incorrect. I got it confused with the experience bar that pops up when you take a collectible. I'm sorry for the confusion. I will suggest an edit to remove that point, add another and define things a bit more clearly.

  • @Strike Are you also sure about the edit regarding an auto-save after liberating an outpost? After I liberate outposts in the second island, I don't see the auto-save icon. Dec 19, 2012 at 12:46
  • For me in the very least it worked. As soon as the little cutscene was over the auto-save icon popped up. Take this video at 5:23 for reference.
