Pour le Français ? Désolé pas pour l'instant…


All Souls-Like games are using the same concept to save your progression. You need to find the next Bonfire (Dark Souls I to III), Crystal (Lords of the Fallen), Altar (Immortal Unchained), Sculptor's Idol (Sekiro), Medbay (The Surge) or a Shrine (Pharaonic).


But actually, many players never touched a Dark Soul because it's too Punishing for them ! Yes there are a few guys on Youtube who can finish any Dark Souls blindfolded, with the hands tied in the back, playing with their foot without being harmed even once ! But these guys are only representing like 0.001% of the community… The average player won't have the patience, nor either enough time to invest in a “Die and Retry”.

Sekiro How to Save Game

Please Share it to your Friends

  • Sekiro Savegames on your PC are located in
  • In that folder you'll find a file with .SL2 Extension
  • Everytime you see the little Icon ingame indicating
    you that the game is saving, this .SL2 file is updated.
  • Basically you need to let an Explorer window of this
    folder opened, before you launch the game.
  • Then Ingame, every time you feel the need to save
    your progression, go into your character profile and
    get out. It's a trick to activate the save manually.
  • Then Press Alt + TAB key to switch windows, and
    arrive on your Savegame folder Window.
  • Create a directory, name it with the description you
    want (5th Boss ?), and copy paste in the .SL2 file.

Your List of Saves ! (Click to Enlarge)

List of Checkpoints

You can keep a list of everything you've done. Like the exact precise moment before fighting all the bosses ingame ! Very useful if you want to re-experience the same fight later on, with the same starting gear, without waiting to be in another playground (NG+), just to see if your skills have really improved overtime.


  • SEKIRO is a very hard game to master !
  • personally i found it harder than Dark Souls
  • Because the timeframe of some movements
    is just too much QTE oriented…
  • QTE ? It means Quick Time Event, and it was
    popularized in it's time (1993) by Dragon's Lair
  • In short… Some Boss are a real Pain in the Ass
  • It takes more efforts than in Dark Souls, because
    even if you learn the Boss Patterns… You'll still
    have to click/move at the exact precise moment.

Violent Game ?

  • Sekiro is much more violent than Dark Souls
  • In Dark Souls your enemies are simply
    disappearing like spirits once they're killed…
  • In Sekiro they die in a FLOW of BLOOD ^_^
  • Not that i don't like it… But i am pretty sure
    it's not a game to put in everyone hands 😉
  • It's sometimes even a little (a lot !) GORE !
  • But i repeat… As an adult, I liked that 😀

Is it Cracked ?

  1. A “From Software” Game ? Of course it was…
  2. Will it hurt their business ? No not at all… They
    are famous, with a huge Customer Database.
  3. This time i couldn't say that you wouldn't have the
    latest updates, by downloading a cracked version,
    because all the updates are cracked very fast !
  4. When a game is famous, the hackers know they
    have to release every cracks very fast, for their
    impatient community of non-paying players.


  • Sekiro how to save game will help you to prevail
  • But for some of you, mastering the game will take
    weeks, if not months ! Depends if you're casual…
  • The game is somewhat long, but on an downside
    note, i have to mention that one place is re-used
    twice ! But that's part of the adventure / plot.
  • I'd like to tell you that i am waiting for a Sequel,
    but i still have the 2 last Bosses to beat 😀
  • The game can be bought for 60€ ($67 ?),
    the price is high but the game is Excellent !

Pictures are better than anything

Love Souls

At the beginning of this page, i already recommended no less than 5 other Souls-Like Games ! 🙂 Well ok i could add in Bound by Flame… But it's short and not the best 😉 Look on Steam for other Indie Games like Mortal Shell, Hellpoint, etc… you'll find everything for your needs !

Developers have to be paid for their hard work !
