Like many other games , DIRT 5 and Maneater will receive free upgrades from PS4 to PS5 – but there’s a catch, as you’ll have to start both titles over again. Sony’s approach to cross-backup appears to need to be implemented by developers; Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales will allow you to transfer your progress between the two consoles, but Yakuza: Like a Dragon will not.
It has now been confirmed that Codemasters’ rally driver and Tripwire Interactive’s self-proclaimed ShaRkPG will follow the latter’s path. Writing on Twitter , the DIRT 5 team explained, “On PlayStation, your Playgrounds creations can carry over, but other game progress (career, currency, saved liveries) cannot.” He added, “If that changes, we’ll let you know! “
As part of an FAQ, the team behind Maneater explained, “This is a separate app / game on PlayStation 5 and trophies, stats and saves will not transfer. We’ve known since the days of the PS Vita that it’s possible to create combined game profiles across multiple PlayStation platforms. It looks like what’s going on here is that some developers have decided not to take advantage of it, effectively creating new profiles for Sony’s next-gen system – although the upgrades are free.
