Where are the save game files located?
Epic Game Store
You can find your saved game files in the following folder:
%USERPROFILE%\Saved Games\The Outer Worlds
%USERPROFILE% usually maps to "C:\Users\<your username>", so in this example, the save game files would be in "C:\Users\<your username>\Saved Games\The Outer Worlds"
Microsoft Store and Xbox Game Pass
If you're playing on the Microsoft Store or through the Xbox (Beta) App for PC:
Playing while logged into your Microsoft account (which enables cloud saves):
%USERPROFILE%\Saved Games\The Outer Worlds Windows 10\<YOUR GAMERTAG>
Playing while signed out / offline:
%USERPROFILE%\Saved Games\The Outer Worlds Windows 10\Local
Advanced Users: You can move your save files between these folders if you'd like (to allow for online or offline play) but make sure the game is not running and to back up any changes that you make.
