After a long series of updates, Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut finally brings a much-needed change. Now, players can transfer the saved data over without downloading the complete version again. It is one of the biggest improvements as it cuts down a lot of extra and unnecessary work. Sony brilliantly tackled the PlayStation 5 cross-gen save issue. On PlayStation 5, the saves can be bought over from the cloud, internal SSD, or even a USB stick.

After the proper upgrade to PlayStation 5, Ghost of Tsushima got a lot of improvements such as better resolution, less loading time, no more pre-rendered cinematics, and much more. However, what got the most attention is how Playstation 5 imports Playstation 4 saves seamlessly. Earlier, the exchange of data was quite difficult as players had to download a dozen of gigabytes of extra data to get where they had left off the game. The recent change now makes all this much simpler and less time-consuming.

How to transfer save files?

To transfer save files from PlayStation 4 to PlayStation 5, first, have them in the PlayStation 5 storage and select ”Transfer PS4 console save” on the menu. However, first, download the latest patch. If you are a PS Plus member with cloud saves, download locally before transferring. According to the official tweet by Sucker Punch, when players transfer the PlayStation 4 saves to PlayStation 5, they can also re-earn all the trophies previously locked on PlayStation 5.

After completely transferring the files into the game, the PlayStation 5 trophies should appear. After the first load, the trophies will pop out.
