What is the problem exactly then? Well, players are progressing through the story just fine until they come up to the Volga area. Once you enter the elevator in this section, it’s worth not using the game’s quicksave feature as it can set you back hours.

We know this because of this thread on the Steam community forums alerting players to the problem. People have been finding that if they save manually at this point, the Metro Exodus Volga elevator quicksave bug breaks the game. Of course, if you haven’t saved for a while, you’ll have a lot of backtracking to do. You’ll have lost a good few hours of progress, so it’s definitely not worth saving here.

The best solution to the Metro Exodus Volga elevator quicksave bug is to simply forego saving manually in the elevator itself. If you do, you’ll end up being stuck in the elevator, unable to toggle the switch to make it go up, and with no means of escape. One Youtube video shows exactly what happens when you quicksave at this point.

Deep Silver and 4A Games haven’t confirmed that a patch will come out for this error, but it’s likely that they will have been made aware of it. An update to the game can’t be too far away, especially if other errors have been found. For now, your safest option is to save manually before entering the lift, or allow the autosave function to kick in when it can.
