Hi guys!

Just want to point out that the previously mentioned method with cloud saving is overly complicated.

I just went out and deleted the local save when I died in an otherwise clean run and reloaded the game (so the game redownloads the cloudsave). All online.

At least my game didn't upload the death to the save right away even if the game registrerad the death (no 'reload checkpoint' available)
FrozenImplosionCan confirm that this works! Just finished it

VirusTk GaMBitI tried this method twice and sadly it didn't work for me. Don't mean it as criticism, maybe it got patched or I am doing something wrong...

HUN playmoreAs of today, I can confirm this method - just like with every other game where you lose your progress by the game overwriting your save - WORKS. To conserve resources cloud save syncing always lags behind the internal save by several minutes. This means if you don't force it by quit and restarting the game it will have your save from ~5 minutes ago. To keep it simple, any time something bad happens, don't quit the game but go to 'manage game' and delete the save with 'A + delete from console'. You may have do this twice in a row. Then the game forcibly closes and when you restart you'll get your save back.

The reason people may not get this is because the time limit isn't visible and actually very tight. I did this a couple of times exactly the same and when I barely had to restart I got it right away. Note that every time you start from a checkpoint you have to wake up which adds at least 5 seconds to the clock. Every time you don't get through large portions in one go (forced to hide for example) you will lose 10-20 seconds easily.
