How to save a game on GTA 5

The first thing to do to learn how to save on GTA 5 is to understand that Rockstar Games has decided to divide the saves for each aspect of the game but I immediately clarify one important thing: the procedures to follow are the same on all gaming platforms, so read on and you will find out how to save to GTA 5 PS4 , how to save to GTA 5 Xbox 360 and  how to save to GTA 5 PS3 .

That said, let’s focus on the method of saving the game in Story Mode . Well, one of the most common mistakes of novice players is to close the game and think that there has been some kind of autosave . Nothing could be more wrong: this feature, in fact, must first be enabled from the settings (e.g. Options button on PS4).

To do this, just go to the SETTINGS tab and move the Autosave option to Yes . This way, the game will automatically make saves.

In any case, my advice is not to trust this possibility too much and to manually save in the most “sensitive” points. To proceed, there are two main ways: you can simply open the phone (ie. Up arrow on PS4 ) and select Quick save (the cloud icon) or bring to you in the bed of your house and press the button that appears on screen (e.g. right arrow on PS4 ).

Perfect, now you just have to select one of the available slots , overwriting the previous save or creating a new one. In short, saving a game in GTA 5 is not that difficult: just get carried away.

How to save in GTA 5 Online

As for GTA Online , which we can consider as a “game of its own” (even if it is actually integrated as a mode of GTA 5), the method is a bit different.

In fact, being a perpetually online mode, almost everything is saved immediately . However, Rockstar Games has also implemented a “manual” method , which allows players to be “safer”. The latter consists, in layman’s terms, in exiting the online mode.

To put it into action, just go to the settings (eg Options button on PS4 ), go to the ONLINE tab and press Exit GTA Online . The game will warn you with the message: “Your GTA Online progress will be automatically saved on exit” .

In short, now you have all the necessary information to be able to save your progress in both modes of Grand Theft Auto V.

How to save cars in GTA 5

How do you say? Did you try to put a car “taken on the street” in the garage near Franklin’s house but it didn’t save you? Not sure how to keep the cars you “borrowed”? No problem, I’ll tell you how to do it right away.

Well, you should know that, although some garages open and allow you to place a car inside them, the next time you load the game it will disappear. In fact, some facilities aren’t designed to allow you to keep cars.

To do this, you will need to purchase your own garage (don’t worry, you will be guided directly by the game to this possibility). After that, a blue circle will appear in front of it . All you have to do is bring the machines you want here and they will be saved inside.

For more details, I recommend you to consult my tutorials on how to buy a garage on GTA and how to get free cars on GTA Online . I also invite you to take a look at my guide to the best GTA cars .

How to save a suit in GTA 5

One of the lesser known features of GTA is the one that allows you to save outfits to change directly during the game. It is, in fact, a somewhat “hidden” possibility, but we are here to understand how it works.

To proceed, you must first go to a clothing store (you can find it on the map, it is the T-shirt icon). Then, go to the cashier , buy or wear the outfit you want to save and press the button for the Edit saved outfits option (eg square on PS4 ).

At this point, press on one of the empty slots and type the name of the outfit . Great, you’ve now successfully saved that clothing. You can repeat this operation as many times as you want, until the 20 available slots are filled .

Once you have saved all the outfits you want to always carry with you, you can safely leave the shop. At this point, to change to any area of ​​the map, just open the interaction menu (eg by holding down the touchpad on PS4 ) and select the Style item .

Later, you can change the outfit simply by changing the Dress option . Here you will find all the clothes you have previously saved, applicable at any time in the game .

Perfect, now you are able to save all the various elements of the game. Since you are interested in GTA 5, I also recommend that you consult the page on my site dedicated to the title of Rockstar Games , where you can find countless tutorials that could be for you.
