Dying Light 2: Save Game PC Location Guide

If you're looking for a way to back up your progress, then follow our guide for all possible save game locations in Dying Light 2 on PC.

Dying Light 2 is a big game. Maybe not exactly 500 hours big, but there are a lot of side quests that disappear after a certain point, and some decisions aren't easy. That's not to mention multiple endings. With all of that in mind, you may be wondering how to find your save files to return to certain portions without having to start over completely.

Below, we cover all of the possible save game locations for Dying Light 2 on PC, so you can regularly back up your progress. But do note that this only applies to the PC version of the game, which is available in both Steam and Epic Games. You cannot do this on PlayStation or Xbox just yet, though Techland is working to implement the functionality.

Dying Light 2 Steam Save File Locations

Remember that Steam doesn't always save game folders with the exact title of the game. In this case, Steam can store all Dying Light 2 save files in the "534380" folder on your PC. 

You can simply search your hard drive for this folder, or use the following paths, where Dying Light 2 save files are stored:

  • \Steam\userdata\[USERID]\534380\remote\out\
  • C:\Users\User\Documents\dying light 2\out\save_backups
  • C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\DyingLight2\Saved\
  • C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Roaming\DyingLight2\Saved\

One of these folders will surely contain all of your save files. So just copy the entire folder and store it on a different drive.

It is also advisable to turn on the cloud storage on Steam by following these steps:

  1. Open Steam.
  2. Go to the Steam menu in the top right.
  3. Select the "Settings" option.
  4. Go to the "Cloud" tab.
  5. Check the "Enable Steam Cloud Synchronization" option.
  6. Press "OK" to confirm.

Dying Light 2 Epic Games Save File Locations

Epic Games usually stores files under the "DL2" or "DyingLight2" folder on your PC.

Here is the list of all possible save files locations for Dying Light 2:

  • C:\Users\[USERNAME]\Documents\My Games\DyingLight2\Saved\SaveGames\
  • C:\Users\[USERNAME]\Saved Games\
  • C:\Users\[USERNAME]\Documents\My Games
  • C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\DyingLight2\Saved\

Epic Games also recommends utilizing cloud storage for save files:

  1. Start the Epic Games launcher app.
  2. Click on your profile icon at the top right corner.
  3. Select the "Settings" option.
  4. Check "Enable Cloud Saves" option.
