Is there Watch Dogs: Legion cross-save functionality? Current-gen console players are keen to learn whether or not they can transfer their save-file from PS4 to PS5 or Xbox One to Xbox Series X.

Watch Dogs: Legion cross-save

With Watch Dogs: Legion cross-save, players are able to transfer their save files from one console to another and pick up where they left off. This will come in handy with the next-gen version of the game. It’s expected that most players will play the game first on a current-gen console, wanting to transfer their save file over to a next-gen machine.

There is cross-save in Watch Dogs: Legion. Players are able to transfer their PS4 save-file to the PS5 and from their Xbox One to the Xbox Series X/Series S. That’s a cross-gen save file, handy alongside the free next-gen upgrade.

This was confirmed in an interview on Gamespot. The game’s live producer Lathieeshe Thillainathan explained that players “don’t need to start over” again. The cross-save functionality, meanwhile, is limited to console manufacturers for singleplayer. For example, a PS4 Watch Dogs: Legion save file can only be transferred to a PS5 and vice-versa. Xbox One can only transfer to Series X/Series S. PC, though, can transfer from PC and Stadia. Players can move the save file around as many times as they like.

Online save-file transfers are cross-gen, too, when online multiplayer is eventually added to the game. In fact, cross-save for the online modes will work across all platforms. This means that a player’s online progress is shared across the PlayStation consoles, Xbox consoles, PC, and Stadia. Again, though, single-player is restricted to consoles from the same company (aside from PC and Stadia cross-save).

Watch Dogs: Legion cross-save is cross-gen for singleplayer (PS4 to PS5 and Xbox One to Xbox Series X/S). Online multiplayer, though, has cross-platform saves across every platform. Now Aiden Pearce can be transferred from PS4 to PS5.
