The recently-announced A Plague Tale Innocence next-gen update for both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S has been released.
Xbox Series and PS5 players can now download the next-gen version of Asobo Studio’s hit title from 2019. On Xbox Series X, the next-gen version weighs in at roughly 42GB, whereas PlayStation 5 players will need to download 33GB of data.
Save files from the last-gen versions on consoles will carry over to the next-gen versions. Whereas saves will automatically carry over from Xbox One to Xbox Series X|S, PS5 players are seemingly required to first download the latest patch on the PS4 version of the game before starting the game on PlayStation 5.
If you've played #APlagueTale: Innocence and are about to dive back into your save on next-gen:
- PS4 to PS5: make sure to download the latest patch on PS4 before starting on PS5 to get your cloud save.
- Xbox One to Xbox Series: automatic cross-progression.
