Ghost of Tsushima on PS5 – how to transfer PS4 save data


If you’ve just purchased Ghost of Tsushima: Director’s Cut on PS5, you’ll want to know how to transfer your PS4 save data. Unless it’s your first time playing of course, in which case: enjoy!


Since Sony launched the PS5 back in November, one major pain point PlayStation fans have encountered is the shoddy save transfer processes in place. In a majority of cases, you will need to update the PS4 version of the game, boot it up, then upload your save in-game before retrieving it on PS5.


For example, those wanting to carry their saves over to Final Fantasy VII Remastered on PS5 needed to re/download the whopping 100GB title on their PS4 beforehand.

Ghost of Tsushima marks a huge leap forward. You won’t need to have the game currently installed on a system you own, nor do you have to manually upload save files:

Sucker Punch allow returning players to access their save data seamlessly from within the Director’s Cut. Simply choose a transfer option from the Ghost of Tsushima main menu, select which file to import, and sit back. You’ll now be able to pick up where you left off or start a New Game+ playthrough. You’ll also want to make sure you import your data for Ghost of Tsushima: Legends too! It’s worth noting that GoT isn’t the only game that does this – Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order quietly touted this handy feature when it recently hopped over to PS5.
