How Cyberpunk 2077 Cross-Saves Work On PS5 And Xbox Series X/S
Here's how to transfer your Cyberpunk 2077 save from one console generation to the other.
Developer CD Projekt Red has outlined the way Cyberpunk 2077 players on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One can transfer their saves to their respective next-gen consoles. (You can read our Cyberpunk 2077 review now for an idea of what to expect.)
PlayStation 4 and Xbox One players who upgrade to the next-gen system in their respective console family can pick up their Cyberpunk 2077 save file on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S / Series X from where they left off when the game drops on December 10. As you'd expect, the process of transferring saves from one console to the other is different for each console family.
Xbox is very simple. Thanks to Smart Delivery, Cyberpunk 2077 players on Xbox One can upload their save to the cloud and simply pick up their file on Xbox Series S / Series X. Similarly, players can connect both consoles to the same network and download their saves via selecting the System Network Transfer option.
PlayStation, on the other hand, has three different ways of transferring saves. Cyberpunk 2077 players on PlayStation 4 can either connect to their PlayStation Plus accounts and upload their save files, transfer their data via a LAN cable or wireless network connection, or use an external hard drive to copy their save and then transfer it to the next-gen PS5 console.
While this process works with the backwards-compatible version of Cyberpunk 2077, it remains unclear whether saves from last-gen consoles will be accessible in the full-fledged next-gen upgrade of Cyberpunk 2077. That version comes out next year for free.
In other Cyberpunk 2077 news, CD Projekt Red confirmed that the open-world action-RPG will receive additional content after launch. The studio is still planning a multiplayer component that's slated to launch in 2022, supposedly with microtransactions that "won't be aggressive."
