PS4 Spider-Man: Miles Morales Save Data Transferable To PlayStation 5

Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be launched simultaneously on both the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 and Sony has confirmed that players will be able to bring their current-gen save data to the next-gen console.

Earlier this month, Sony also announced that several of its biggest PlayStation 5 games – including Spider-Man: Miles Morales – will also be released on the PlayStation 4, and players will be able to upgrade them to their next-gen versions for free.

There haven’t been any detailed announcements about Spider-Man: Miles Morales yet, however, fans already have an idea of what to expect of the game. The game is a direct sequel to the 2018 Marvel’s Spider-Man and will have a lot of similar features.

The two games have so much in common that when Spider-Man: Miles Morales was revealed, fans were confused if it was a new game or an expansion for the original game. While Sony has already confirmed that Spider-Man: Miles Morales will be a standalone title, it looks like its gameplay will be similar to its predecessor but with a new hero with his own unique spider powers.

Now, Sony has also confirmed that players who played Spider-Man: Miles Morales on the PlayStation 4 and would later want to switch to its next-gen version can transfer their save data. However, this will not work on the remastered version of the 2018 Spider-Man game.

Insomniac Games, the developer for both Spider-Man games, announced on Twitter today that PlayStation 4 save data can be carried over to the PlayStation 5 and more details will be shared by the studio soon.

It’s uncertain whether current and next-gen editions of Spider-Man: Miles Morales can openly share save data, which will enable true cross-progression however, players will at least have to switch from the PlayStation 4 to the PlayStation 5 at least once.

This is great news for players who will not be able to purchase the PlayStation 5 during its release this year, which based on recent news, will be quite a lot of players. The start of the PlayStation 5 preorders has been a disaster, with plenty of fans who wanted to purchase Sony’s next-gen consoles seem like they will be left with nothing on release day.

Traffic from fans who wanted to get a PlayStation 5 have crashed the websites of retailers when preorders started to become available and the sad thing is several preorders have been cancelled or pushed back to a next year delivery because of low stock of the next-gen consoles.

Now, fans who were not fortunate enough to preorder a PlayStation 5 know that they can at least begin Spider-Man: Miles Morales on the PlayStation 4 and then upgrade later to a PlayStation 5 without any additional expenses or forcing them to start the game all over again.

As a flagship PlayStation 5 game, it looks like Spider-Man: Miles Morales is receiving the best treatment from Sony. While it might be too soon to know for sure, it does make sense that the game could serve as a display of technical excellence for the PlayStation 5 thus making Sony committed to turning it into the best experience probable for both early buyers and latecomer.
