When a game saves, often there are two places they’re stored. One is locally on your computer (so that you can play offline), and another in the cloud (such as Steam cloud, so that they are permanently backed up and synced between systems). There are a few reasons you might want to know the location of your save files.
Firstly, back-ups are important. In the event that your save becomes corrupt (whether due to a bug, modding issue etc), you likely won’t be able to play that save again, meaning all that progress is lost. By copying and pasting your save folder, you’ll always have a backup you can revert too. It’s always recommended to back-up your save before making any changes to your game.
Another reason you might need to know where your save game is located is so that you can actually modify it. Some games have special software available which allow you to open up your save and edit your character freely.
Where to Find Xenoverse 2 Saves
Steam users can find the Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 files inside their Steam folder. The default directory is:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\USERID\323470\remote\DBXV2\DBXV2.sav
Replace C:\ with the drive you have Steam installed in. USERID should be replaced with the ID of your Steam Profile folder.
If you can’t access your Steam folder, open up Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 in your library. From there, press the cog icon on the right hand side of the screen, choose ‘Manage’ and ‘Browse Local Files’.
