How To Enable Cross-Save For Genshin Impact On PS5
With the release of Genshin Impact version 2.0, cross-save is coming to the PS5 and PS4. And that means you can finally play the game across every platform that it’s on and carry your progress with you on all of them. While Android, iOS, and PC players have been enjoying this capability since the game launched, PlayStation players were left out.
Once the 2.0 update launches, things won’t just work. You’ll have to link your account on PSN to the rest of the accounts, which are all linked together with your miHoYo account. And while that might seem like something that will be either tedious or inconvenient, the process is actually really quite simple. It’s made all the easier thanks to miHoYo, which recently explained how to enable cross-save for Genshin Impact on the PS5 and PS4.
If you plan to play on either of those two consoles from time to time, this handy guide will walk you through how to get everything connected. So you can freely jump between platforms as you see fit. First though, let’s go over why this is a good idea if you have a PS4 or PS5.

Or maybe you primarily play on console but you have to share the TV, and you need to switch devices if you want to continue playing. Well, this is why you want to link the PSN account for cross-save. Because you can carry that progress on the PS4 or PS5 over to a mobile device or a gaming PC is you have it. And vise versa.

There are also a couple of caveats to be aware of, but we’ll go over those a bit later. First, let’s go over the steps for linking your PC/mobile miHoYo account to your PS4 or PS5.
