Save game cloud syncing is the process of having save game data automatically synced to cloud storage.


Cloud syncing has a number of benefits:

  • Automatic backup protects against catastrophic data loss like hard drive crashes.
  • Seamlessly continue a game on another PC without having to manually transfer save data.
  • Ability to store save games for long term retrieval (useful for series such as Mass Effect which spanned over 4 years).
