Cyberpunk 2077’s next-gen patch has finally rolled out, with a number of notable improvements. From then on, surely you want to transfer your PS4 save to PS5. Here’s how.
The next-gen version of Cyberpunk 2077 was eagerly awaited. CD Projekt RED finally delivered on their promise by rolling it out. It is now possible to discover the game optimized for next-generation consoles. Among the improvements, players will be able to benefit from ray-tracing, 4K at 60 FPS (with dynamic resolution scaling) but also faster loading times. The Dualsense controller’s haptic feedback features and adaptive triggers are also on the menu.
The new next-gen version should enhance the gaming experience if the developers have learned from past setbacks. Especially since the arrival of patch 1.5 also brings its share of improvements: increased responsiveness of NPCs, additional content, more complete customization of the appearance, improved AI during the combat phases… The studio has not skimped on the news.
Cyberpunk 2077: switch from PS4 to PS5
Do you want to survey Night City by switching your PS4 save to the PS5? The developer has provided some explanation about this on its official website. Players will need to select a save file to upload to the cloud. After launching the PS5 version, they will have the option to download it and continue their progress on Sony’s latest console.
Note that it is not necessary to have a PlayStation Plus subscription to perform the maneuver. Important detail, only one backup file is supported. For their part, people who already play Cyberpunk 2077 on PS5 via backward compatibility will only have to download the new version of the game. By doing so, the console will automatically detect the save.
Last I heard, some players failed to upgrade from Cyberpunk 2077 to the PS5 version. However, CD Projekt RED was quick to provide an explanation: “For disc owners, in order to download the next-gen upgrade, the CUSA (PlayStation code) of your disc must match the region of your PlayStation account”.
