    Can you have two Skyrim characters and it be safe for one not to overwrite the other when saving or auto saving?I have a level 55 that’s nearly beaten everything that I don’t want to lose, but I messed up the “Oblivion Walker” trophy and want to start a new character just for that .

    Does anybody know?

    Yes, you can.

    Manual saves won't overwrite each other, so use those. Autosaves will overwrite but it's never a good idea to rely solely on those anyway.

    I think there is a max number of saves you can have on the PS4, but looks like it's 100 so shouldn't be an issue.

    As long as your characters don't have the same name and race it won't be hard to distinguish between their saves.

    Thank you. The only other question I guess I have, is when you travel and the game auto saves every time you enter a major city or area, will it overwrite another characters game?

    Autosaves don't care about which character they "belong to", so yes. Make sure to always leave a manual save as the latest save before switching characters so the save won't be overwritten.

    Thank you so much. So basically, manual saves can not be overwritten by an auto save if I’m understanding.

    Yep.
    (If you're on Special Edition, quicksave works the same as autosave, except instead of three there's only one of them.)
