How to Save in God of War Valhalla

There are two ways to save in God of War Valhalla, and neither of them will be overly pleasing to those of you that have never played a rougelite. The first one is to rely on the autosave. Valhalla saves by itself whenever you end a run (be it by dying or by emerging victorious) and when you spend your acquired materials and currency to permanently increase your stats in The Shore area. The second option is to “suspend” your game, as this mode calls it. You can only do this in Sanctuaries, by interacting with the Tablet of Endeavor. You can see what one of these looks like in the image above. It’s basically an ornate stone slab with golden text on it.

If you want to save your game in God of War Ragnarok Valhalla, when you’re in the Tablet of Endeavor menu, hit Square. This will save your run in that spot and send you straight back to the main menu. In other words, it tries to encourage you to save only when you want to quit for the day. However, there’s nothing stopping you from hopping right back in from the main menu. But, yeah, those are your two options. By the way, the Tablet of Endeavor is important for more than one reason. You can also use them to purchase temporary upgrades that will disappear after the current attempt ends. And whenever you’re in a Sanctuary, explore the whole place. You might find some hidden treasures.
