Saves Files Are Marked by Life Paths in Cyberpunk 2077

Save files in Cyberpunk 2077 are marked by life paths, making switching between playthroughs a snap to understand. Łukasz Babiel, QA lead at CD Project Red, confirmed save files are this way to make them easy to distinguish from one another.

In a recent Twitter thread on Babiel’s page, a fan asked how save files work in game. “Every save is marked with the life path,” states Babiel. “so you can distinguish them.”

Babiel’s remarks, however, lead to some degree of confusion though. Many people took his comment as a sign that saves are separated by life path when all he said was each save is marked by life paths. A mistake some folks are running with on Cyberpunk’s subreddit. It’s more likely that Babiel’s comment means details on saves clarify what path a character is on. Much like the usual distinguishers like total playtime, the number of saves, hours played, class, number of deaths, location, and so on.

Considering that Cyberpunk 2077 is an RPG with hundreds of hours worth of content, one would hope that there are easy ways to distinguish saves. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, CD Project Red’s last RPG, let you have as many save slots as your hard drive could handle. So, it seems safe to assume Cyberpunk 2077 will feature a similar, if not more robust, save system than the studio’s previous RPG.

It’s hard to imagine an RPG released these days that isn’t full of data letting you know which save file is which. In that same Twitter thread, Babiel notes his playthrough is over 170 hours long. So there’s got to be loads of signifiers to recognize which save file is current.

We won’t know for sure until Cyberpunk 2077 comes out on December 10, but it’s a safe bet that there’ll be no shortage of ways to save your progress, regardless.
