Location of Save Games

Pillars of Eternity stores its save games in the following locations:

 

Windows

%USERPROFILE%\Saved Games\Pillars of Eternity
 

%USERPROFILE% usually is something like C:\Users\your-name-here

 

OS X

For Steam, GOG, and DRM-free backer disc versions:

~/Library/Application Support/Pillars of Eternity/Saved Games
 

If you bought Pillars of Eternity from the Apple App Store, your save game directory is located here:

~/Library/Containers/com.mpdigital.pillarsofeternity/Data/Library/Application Support/Pillars of Eternity/Saved Games
 

Linux

$XDG_DATA_HOME/PillarsOfEternity/SavedGames
 

If $XDG_DATA_HOME is not defined, it's stored in ~/.local/share

 

There is one other folder that you may find in your temporary locations where we build and maintain the current game state, but this is not intended to be shared / used if you go to play on another machine.

 

For the Backer Beta, save games were stored in non-standard locations, such as roaming or temp folder locations. Those were changed for the final game release.

Hi, just a quick question regarding backing up saves.  I have Pillars on Ubuntu and want to wipe my SSD and reinstall the OS.  However, I don't want to lose any of my saves, characters or game state in general.  Can I simply backup the saves and move them into the same location once I'm done reinstalling?  Thanks in advance!
