Baldur's Gate 3: How to cross-save between PC and PS5 in BG3
If you're someone who wants to enjoy Baldur's Gate 3 on different platforms, Larian Studios has something for you! The studio has implemented the feature of cross-saving. This means that if you've started a campaign on PC or PS5, you won't have to start over on the new platform you move to. It's a quick and easy process, and we'll explain to you in this guide how to cross-save so you can jump between PC and PS5 without any problems.
How to Cross-Save Between PC and PS5 in BG3?
Cross-saving between PC and PS5 in BG3 is quite an easy process that won't take much time to do. First, you would need to create a Larian account. Activating the cross-save feature is free, and by enabling this feature, you can upload your game save to Larian's servers.
Open Baldur's Gate 3 on your PC, and from there, you need to follow these steps –
Login to your Larian account. Make sure you have a stable internet connection.
Navigate through options and make sure cross-save is enabled on your PC. This would make sure your latest game save is binded to your Larian account.
Now, switch to Baldur's Gate 3 on your PS5 and head to the ingame options.
Make sure the cross-save option is turned on, and login using the same Larian account.
After doing this, you'll be able to access all your saved game files and play them on your PC or PS5.
If you're using an Xbox Series S/X, fear not! Once the game launches on Xbox, you'll be able to use the same cross-save feature between your PC and Xbox. Larian has not provided an official release date for the Xbox release, but it's expected to come out before 2023 officially ends.
Do I Need a PS Plus Subscription to use the BG3 Cross Save Feature?
Nope! You don't need a PS Plus subscription to use the cross-save feature on your PS5 since it makes use of Larian's servers. However, remember that you would need two copies of Baldur's Gate 3, one on each platform, to enjoy this cross-save feature. It's the same for PS5 and Xbox Series S/X. You would need a copy on each platform.
Well, that covers how you can transfer your BG3 game saves between PC and PS5. Hopefully, everything is clear now, and you're on your way to enjoying BG3's world regardless of whichever platform you choose to play the game on!
