When is cross-saving coming to Genshin Impact on PS4 and PS5?
Genshin Impact’s long-awaited cross-save feature releases alongside Inazuma region update 2.0, which will hit live servers July 21, 2021. This will transfer the backups to PS4, PS5, PC, Android, and iOS.
This is obviously huge news for all gamers, especially those on PlayStation, who previously could not use the same account on PC and mobile. We’ll likely hear how this feature works once the Inazuma update goes live, so be sure to check back here for all the latest details.
What is cross-backup in Genshin Impact?
To put it simply, cross-save allows you to play on the same Genshin Impact account on many devices. For example, if you have a Genshin Impact console account and want to play on PC, then you will be able to freely transfer all of your progress between any device of your choice.
This is obviously a fantastic feature for those who want to play on PC, mobile, PS4, PS5, and Switch.
