Spider-Man: Miles Morales will let you transfer your PS4 save over to PS5

Insomniac also showed off the T.R.A.C.K. suit pre-order bonus

Will your save files carry over to PS5 in all cases? Unfortunately, there’s not an easy or neat across-the-board answer to that question, and anxiety has only spread as developers share their specific plans.

We learned yesterday that Yakuza: Like A Dragon will not support PS4/PS5 cross-saves, but Spider-Man: Miles Morales – another prominent cross-gen game with a PS4 version and a PS5 version – will.

A fan posed the question on Twitter and Insomniac came back with a simple yes.

In other words, if you get Miles Morales digitally on PS4, you can move over to PS5 whenever you please. If you buy a physical PS4 copy, you’ll just need to play on the PS5 model with a disc drive.

On a separate but related note that’s probably worth reiterating right now, your progress in Spider-Man PS4 – as in, the 2018 game – will not carry over to 2020’s Spider-Man Remastered on PS5. (Also, the remaster is tied to the Ultimate Edition of Miles Morales and that’s a whole ‘nother annoyance.)

Beyond shedding light on the save-file situation, Insomniac Games also opened digital pre-orders for Miles Morales today – if you pre-order, you’ll get the T.R.A.C.K. suit, another bonus suit that hasn’t been revealed yet, an “early unlock” of the Gravity Well gadget, and three extra Skill Points. Nothing wild.

The bonuses are similar to the ones in Spider-Man (2018), meaning you’ll be able to get them in-game.
