How to start a new game in Dragon’s Dogma 2

Before I’d even taken five steps out of the character creator, I was wondering how to start a new game in Dragon’s Dogma 2. Even with its detailed lighting options, it’s very possible to accidentally make an Arisen you can’t live with and want to start over right away rather than wait until you can change your appearance. My first hero turned out to have duck lips and embarrassingly short legs once I saw her gallivanting around in cutscenes. Even my pawns looked embarrassed. 

I was surprised to find there’s no New Game option and no way to manage your single save. The only way to start over is to go outside the game and manually wipe your progress. But Capcom hasn’t made it easy to figure out how to delete your Dragon’s Dogma 2 save.

The first thing you need to do is turn off cloud syncing in Steam—otherwise it won’t matter if you delete your save, it’ll simply be restored from the cloud. Then you need to find where your save files are hidden and delete them. Just follow these steps:

  • Right click on the game in your Steam library, go to Properties, and then turn off cloud saves in the General tab.
  • Find your save. It’ll be pretty well hidden, but you should find it in a folder called something like:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\33217548\2054970
  • Delete all the files in that folder.
  • Boot up Dragon’s Dogma 2, start a new game, make your new character, and make sure you’ve saved.
  • Turn cloud saves back on by the same process you followed to turn them off.
