Storage Locations

These are common storage locations for saves and profiles for Dead Island games.

If needed, see the list of common app/title IDs for Dead Island games.

Placeholder Description
<user> Your platform-specific account name or ID.
<app/title ID> The game's application or title ID. Every game has a unique ID.

You should see files named save_<number>.sav (Dead Island) and/or save_<number>.sar (Riptide). Those are your saves, and there is one per character. There may be one extra (old) copy so make sure to pick the right one.

PC (Steam)

If Steam was installed at the default location, saves should be here:

%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Steam\userdata\<user>\<app ID>\remote\out\save

Similarly, the profile should be here:

%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Steam\userdata\<user>\<app ID>\remote\out\profiles

Xbox 360

These paths are for saves stored on a USB drive.
