Cyberpunk 2077 has landed on PlayStation 5 consoles, and many players received a free PS 5 upgrade along with their PS 4 copy. If you’re one of those players, then you’re likely looking to transfer your save files across platforms. Luckily, CD Projekt RED and Sony make it a fairly straightforward process.

There are three ways to move your PS4 save to your PS5: connecting to your PS Plus online storage, data transfer via LAN or WiFi, or transferring data via a USB device. Note: to transfer your save using any of the three methods, you must be using the same PlayStation account on both consoles.

Method One: Connecting your PS Plus account online storage

This method requires you to use PlayStation’s online storage function. This feature grants users access to 100GB of storage that they can use to save and transfer game files from console to console as needed. If you haven’t activated automatic uploads, there’s no worries; this guide will fill you in on how to perform a manual upload.

  • On your PlayStation 4, go to Settings.
  • Locate Application Data Management.
  • Find Saved Data in System Storage.
  • Select Cyberpunk 2077.
  • Hit Yes to upload your save file.
  • Click Upload to Online Storage.
  • On your PlayStation 5, go to Settings.
  • Click Saved Data (PS4).
  • Select Cloud Storage, and click Cyberpunk 2077.
  • Click Download to Console Storage.

Method Two: Data transfer via LAN or WiFi

Before beginning the data transfer process, ensure that both your PS4 and PS5 consoles are updated and that you are signed in on both consoles to the account you plan on using on your PS5.

  • On your PS4, navigate to Trophies.
  • Press the Options button while in Trophies.
  • Click Sync with PlayStation Network.
  • Connect both consoles to the same network via WiFi or LAN cable.
    • To connect your consoles via LAN cable, simply plug one end of the LAN cable into the PS5 and the other into the PS4.
    • Using a LAN cable will drastically decrease your transfer time.
  • Ensure both consoles are powered on.
  • On your PS5 console, navigate to Settings.
  • Select System.
  • Go into System Software.
  • Click Data Transfer.
  • Hit Continue.
  • Select the PS4 you wish to transfer your Cyberpunk 2077 save from.
    • The PS5 will show the message Prepare for Data Transfer.
  • Press and hold the power button on your PS4 until it beeps.
  • On the PS5, select the Cyberpunk 2077 data you wish to transfer.
    • Be sure to read any precautionary statements that pop up.
  • Hit Start Transfer.
    • Your console will restart following the transfer. It will be ready to use upon restarting.

Method Three: Transferring via a compatible storage device

The last method requires users to have a compatible storage device and the accompanying cable—piece of cake.

  • Connect a USB storage device to your PS4.
  • Go to Settings.
  • Locate Application Saved Data Management.
  • Click Saved Data in System Storage.
  • Hit Copy to USB Storage Device.
  • Select the Cyberpunk 2077 save file you’d like to transfer.
  • Transfer save to the connected USB drive.
  • On your PS5, go to Settings.
  • Select Saved Data and Game/App Settings.
  • Hit Saved Data (PS4).
  • Select USB Drive.
  • Click Copy to Console Storage.
