Owners of Razer's Game Booster software for Windows PC can utilize the beta version of a new feature today — the Save Game Manager, which backs up game saves and settings directly to the cloud, the company announced today.

According to Razer, Save Game Manager can be used for games with local save files and will automatically upload saves and player data to Dropbox. Save Game Manager's full release, to come at a later date, will be be compatible with more cloud storage services.

Save Game Manager is currently compatible with more than 2,000 titles, including both seasons of Telltale Games' The Walking Dead, XCOM: Enemy Unknown and the recent Tomb Raider. Razer notes this will be "continuously updated" as the company's software engineers add compatibility for new titles. Users also have the option to manually add new games to their service.

"We continually work to enhance the gaming experience for our community," Razer co-founder and CEO Min-Liang Tan said in a press statement. "There are few things that take the fun out of gaming more than lost game progress or disappearing settings. It is our hope to rid the world of such frustrations and help make sure that losing game info never happens again."

Save Game Manager is the most recently-added feature for the Game Booster, which functions as a launcher with some performance enhancements for running games. The software also backs up save game data and provides users with other features like screen capture tools.

The Razer Game Booster with Save Game Manager is available to download through Razer's website for free.
