To coincide with the next-gen launch, Crash Bandicoot 4 update 1.05 has been released which adds cross-gen save transferring.
Crash Bandicoot 4 Update 1.05 Patch Notes
No official notes have been provided, however the community has been quick to find some changes. We will update the post once we get an official changelog, but for now these are the community findings.
- Polar Bear hitboxes have been fixed!
- Crates in the grinding section of Out for Launch no longer bounce. (Reddit
- Cross-gen save transferring
Additionally, some new skins are also available.
While there are no official patch notes available as of writing this, what we do know is that the game has now added cross-gen save transferring support. Meaning that those who have a game save on last gen consoles, you now have the ability to easily transfer the save to a next-gen console (must be part of the same family). On PS4, if you transfer your game save you will earn some trophies on the PS5 that you had previously unlocked. For those that platinumed Crash Bandicoot 4, this will be a easy way to rack up your trophy level as the trophy set is a separate on on PS5, though it won’t unlock all trophies.
And speaking of the PS5 version of the game, while it’s not official due to release till tomorrow (North America), the PlayStation Store has made the free upgrade available a bit early. All you have to do is search for the game on PSN (or click here) and redeem the free PS5 upgrade! The download is roughly 20GB, which is about 25GB less than the PS4 version!
As for what those next-gen upgrades are?
- PS5/Xbox Series X will run at native 4K with the Series S supporting some form of 4K.
- 60FPS at 4K
- PS5 will have 3D audio and Dualsense features such as Haptic feedback
