This guide will discuss how to backup and “reset” your save file process for the purpose of unlocking achievements, restarting the story, etc.
Resetting Save Data from Epic
Resetting Your Save Progress
If you are like me and 100%-ed the game on the Epic Games Store and then went to play the Steam version and realized your save file is still there, this guide is for you! This guide will be pretty simple and straight-forward.
At the time of writing this guide, there is no in-game way to reset your career/account progress entirely in either the Steam or Epic Game Store editions. However, this guide will work for both platforms.
The best way to go about this is to navigate to the following path in Windows File Explorer.
All save files are located in the SaveGames folder. If you wish to back these files up, simply renamed the folder (I named the folder SaveGames-Epic) and relaunch the game. You can also simply delete the folder and it will be regenerated on next launch.
If you want to restore the previous save file (or use another one), simply rename the currently used folder to anything but SaveGames and rename the desired folder to SaveGames.
If you receive Cloud Sync Error the first time launching after performing these actions, choose to keep the local file (i.e., the new save file we just forced). This error should only happen once.
