Early Access Updates and Save Games

During Early Access, a lot of new content is going to be added to the game. Due to the interconnected open-world nature of Starcom:Nexus, major updates will not be “save compatible.” But don’t worry, if an update happens, you’ll still be able to keep playing the save you’re on. Here’s how:

Steam automatically updates game clients (this can’t be disabled). So if you were in the middle of a game and Steam updates, when you come back the continue button won’t be enabled and the load game won’t show any games. Don’t panic, the save is still there.

To continue your saved game, in your Steam Library, right-click Starcom:Nexus and choose properties:

Then, select the Betas tab at the top. Then opt-in to branch of the last stable release. Restart the game and you should be able to load your saved game.

When you want to play the latest version of the game, repeat the steps except select the most recent stable Beta.
