'Red Dead 2' Chapter List: How Many Are There (And How To Save)

Red Dead Redemption 2 is a long game, with estimates of 60+ hours of play time to make it through the main story, and many many more hours to see everything else. But how many chapters are there in the main campaign? Let's find out.

How to Save Your Game in Red Dead Redemption 2

Before we get into the spoiler territory, let's quickly talk about how to save your game in Red Dead 2. Most of the time, your game will be saved by the autosave. This typically works just fine, with plenty of checkpoints added to missions to ensure you never have to redo much if you die.

However, if you want to make a bad decision or see what happens when you turn on cheats, you'll want to save first. To save, pause Red Dead 2 then go to the 'Story' tab. You can save, load a different file and even start a new game. If you want to start a new game, make sure you save your old one first. You are allowed to have multiple game save files on your system. This is helpful if you want a "good" and a "bad" playthrough.
