How to transfer The Witcher 3 savegames from PS4 to PS5 and from Xbox One to Xbox Series X|S
1. The first step is install (if you don’t already have it) The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for PS4 and Xbox One. Yes, you read that right: we need to access the “old-gen” version to be able to transfer our saved games. Make sure that once installed, the game is updated to version 4.00.
2. Once the installation is complete, start the game and choose “load game”. Then press the L2 (on PS4) or LT (on Xbox One) button to enable cross platform progress.
You will have to copy the url shown on the screen or scan the QR code to access the My Rewards website. Click on “claim” and register at GOG.com (or login if you already have an account).
Once this is done, you’ll have activated cross-platform progress (and, by the way, you’ll have obtained several new items). But we’re not done with this version yet…
3. Next we must update the “old” savegames to the current version. Doing so is very simple: load the saved game you want to transfer. Once it has loaded, open the menu and select save game.
If you’ve followed the steps correctly, next to “Empty Slot” you should see the icon of a cloud with an arrow pointing up. Choose that option.
If you want to make sure that everything is in order, when you select load game you should see that a new game has been created indicated by the icon of a cloud and a check mark. In addition, in the image that accompanies it, the current version number (4.00) should be displayed.
4. Now yes, we go to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt for PS5 or Xbox Series X | S and start the game. When selecting load game, we press the L2 or LT button again. It is likely that it will force you to access the url again, but if you have done it before, the process will be much faster and you will only have to log in.
If all went well, you should see your PS4 and Xbox One saves in this version, indicated by the icon of a cloud and a down arrow.
If at any point in the process you have problems (we initially couldn’t get the cloud symbol to appear on PS4/Xbox One, despite the fact that the updated game already indicated that it was in version 4.00), repeat the registration process on GOG.com or restart the gameWell, maybe that’s how it’s solved.
