How do you transfer your PS4 Save Data?

THAT EASY? - Sucker Punch Productions have made it that easy...

Before, with titles like Marvel's Avengers, you would need to download an update for the PS4 version of your game and have both versions installed at the same time. This left many forced into restarting the progress they had made in the current-gen version of the game purely due to lack of storage space.

With the PS4 version of Ghost of Tsushima getting a 21GB update today - version 2.04 is laying a lot of the groundwork for the Director's Cut content coming tomorrow and adding Legends content - it wouldn't be easy to fit the two on the same console.

FIGHT FOR YOUR HOME - Ghost of Tsushima has never looked better!

Thankfully, now, your PS5 should be able to use the Cloud to find your Ghost of Tsushima Save Data and transfer that to the PS5 version of the game without the need for Ghost of Tsushima's PS4 version downloaded. Of course, it will probably be a faster process if the two are installed together but it isn't necessary.

Ghost of Tsushima's Director's Cut is out on August 20th on PS5 and PS4. Both feature the Iki Island expansion and the PS5 version features a number of additional features - such as:

  • DualSense Support
    • Including Adaptive Triggers and Haptic Feedback
  • Japanese Lip Sync to Japanese Audio
  • 4K Resolution and 60 FPS
