With Cyberpunk 2077 right around the corner, but next-gen upgrades not coming until 2021, Cross-Saves are an important wrinkle that CD Projekt Red has tried to iron out. Here’s all you need to know regarding how cross-saves will work.
With the industry transitioning between console generations, there’s a lot of concern regarding save files. Cyberpunk 2077, one of the most hotly anticipated titles of… A long time, is one of these games.
Thankfully, CD Projekt Red have shed a little light on how you’ll be able to transfer your saves.
If you’re starting to play Cyberpunk 2077 on an Xbox One or a PlayStation 4, you’ll want to know about this.
Cyberpunk 2077 Cross-saves on PlayStation Titles…
For now, backwards compatibility is the only way to play Cyberpunk 2077 on a PS5. As long as you’re using the same PSN account, CD Projekt Red are convinced that you shouldn’t have any problem transferring your save between consoles.
However, for those who aren’t using a PSN account, or a different one… There are other options…
Firstly, you can connect your PlayStation Plus account ( the same one) and upplaod your files to the PS5 through this.
Or, you can transfer your data to the PlayStation 5 via LAN Cable or WiFi.
If this isn’t what you want, you can also use a compatible storage device to transfer the saves to the same PSN account on the PS5. So, any PS4-compatible External Hard Drive will do.
And on Xbox Consoles…?
As you’d imagine, the situation on Xbox isn’t wholly different.
Smart Delivery allows you to continue playing the game on an Xbox Series X|S from wherever you left off on the Xbox One. You’ll need to make sure you are connected to the internet so the data can be uploaded via the cloud.
Or, you can connect the Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S to the same network and use the network transfer option. This can be done via WiFi.
It seems PlayStation caters more to players who don’t have strong internet connections, or want to avoid using their WiFi data. However.. I doubt the save game data will take too long. Downloading Cyberpunk however…
