Can you transfer save data in God of War Ragnarok? Many games release on both PS5 and PS4, and some of these cross-gen games allow you to move your save data from the last-gen version to the newer version. This lets you pick up where you left off once you upgrade to a PS5. As part of our God of War Ragnarok guide, we'll be telling you whether you can transfer save data in this game, as well as how to do it.
God of War Ragnarok: Can You Transfer Save Data?
The good news is that yes, you can transfer your save data from PS4 to PS5 in God of War Ragnarok. However, you cannot transfer your save from PS5 back to PS4, so it's a one-way system. Note: You will need an active PS Plus membership in order to upload your PS4 save data to the cloud.

If you want to continue your PS4 save on PS5, it's a pretty easy procedure. Follow these steps to get your save data from PS4 to PS5.
Boot up your console with the PS4 version of God of War Ragnarok. Highlight the game's icon and press Options, then select Upload/Download Saved Data.

On your PS5, navigate to the PS Plus section, then More (the three dots in the top right). Select Cloud Storage. Navigate to Saved Data (PS4), then Cloud Storage. Wait for the saves to appear in the next screen. You should see your PS4 God of War Ragnarok save data at the top. Tick it, then move to Download in the bottom right of the screen.
Next, boot up the PS5 version of God of War Ragnarok. On the main menu, select Load Game. Press R1 to tab across to PS4 System. Your downloaded PS4 save data will appear in the menu. Select it to load the save and carry on where you left off on PS4.
