The transition between console generations is always interesting, although it's been fairly seamless overall thanks to the fact that the PlayStation and Xbox platforms are backwards compatible with the latest generation. Besides that, there are many games that have versions for both generations that players can play depending on the platform they have. Some of them will need to be purchased separately, while others will come with both releases, like the Resident Evil Village release. This new version is available for PS5 and PS4 in addition to a number of consoles, which makes cross-save all the more important and this guide will tell you how to transfer your save from PS4 to PS5 with Resident Evil Village.
How to Transfer Save from PS4 to PS5
Xbox makes it really easy with Smart Delivery and its cloud saves, but PlayStation never makes it too easy about it. Rather than carry over saves regardless of what platform you're playing on, you'll need to manually import our save to PS5.
For those who have already played Resident Evil Village on PS4 and were finally able to score a PS5 after starting and want to transfer your save rather than start fresh, you won't have to do too much, thankfully.
To get started, you obviously need to have your saved game on the PS4 version with your PSN name. Once you have the save you want to transfer, go to the title screen of the game on PS4 and select Options. Scroll down to Download Recorded Data and this will upload it to the servers. Now is the time to upgrade to the PS5 version of Resident Evil Village.
Once you get to the game's title screen on PS5, you'll need to scroll down to Options and select it just like on PS4. Next, scroll down on this new screen to the Download Saved Data option and choose it. This will connect you to the network and download your existing saves from PS4 and bring them into the game for you to use on PS5. If you can't find your save, you'll need to go back to the PS4 and make sure they're downloaded correctly and try again.
Resident Evil Village is available for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, and PC. If you're having any issues in-game, be sure to check out the rest of our guides for Resident Evil Village.
