As with prior games, Mass Effect: Andromeda features an auto-save feature. However, there are times where save checkpoints are few and far between, resulting in lost progress if you aren't careful.
In situations where difficulty presents itself, be sure to head into the main menu and select the 'Save' option toward the top of the screen. This will allow you to create a manual save at your location on the save slot of your choosing.
Note that manual saves are not available during some sections of missions.
Andromeda can be a tough game, so be sure to save often.
