How to Save GTA 4 PC Games Without an Internet Connection

By Danny Djeljosevic

Rockstar Games’ PC game “Grand Theft Auto 4” allows players to travel all over Liberty City to complete missions, many of which involve committing crimes. There are many missions to complete, so gamers will want to save their progress as they play. This involves creating an online Windows Live ID to save progress, but gamers without Internet connections can also save their games. Saving without an Internet connection involves creating an “offline profile” for your computer.

Step 1

Access your “Grand Theft Auto 4” game and click “Start.”

Step 2

Press “Enter” to begin the sign-in process when the screen informs you that you are not signed in.

Step 3

Select “Create New Profile” followed by “Create Offline Profile.”

Step 4

Input the name of your profile (there’s a 15 character maximum) and click “Submit.”

Step 5

Review your profile information, changing any incorrect information with “Customize Profile” and click “Done” to save.

Step 6

Play through the game, saving as you see fit.

Tips & Warnings

  • Players with an Offline Profile won’t be able to track their Achievement points.
