A lot of games these days allow multiple save files. Take GTA V as an example; there are lots of activities to do and there are a few choices to make within the story, you may want to replay it without losing your original progress, so what do you do? You fire up a brand new game and save it as a different file and hey presto, you have two save games.
Unfortunately Far Cry 4 doesn’t have this feature so if you finish the game but fancy traipsing through Kyrat afresh, you’ll have to save over your current save-game. It’s a little annoying but it’s not really the end of the world.
That said, it looks like Far Cry 5 may allow multiple saves, or at least it’s “on the shopping list” according to Far Cry 4’s Creative Director Alex Hutchinson.
Having multiple save files is certainly a handy feature and it did leave us a little stumped as to why there’s only one in Far Cry 4. Perhaps they didn’t want room mates or siblings sharing, or maybe it’s just a technical thing. Either way, it’s a shame that it wasn’t implemented in the first place.
Have you found a way around Far Cry 4’s single-save conundrum? Do you think multiple save files for Far Cry 5 are the way forward? Let us know down in the comments section below.
Far Cry 4 is out now on the PC, PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360. It’s pretty cheap over on Amazon UK if you’ve still not picked it up.
