Cross-saving from PC to PS4 is a little easier, but make sure you don't already have a save file on your PlayStation console. Here's how to do it:
- Install and launch Genshin Impact on your PlayStation 4 or 5.
- When a pop-up screen appears, follow the instructions to link your miHoYo account to PSN.
- Your PC save should now appear on your PS4 or PS5.
Can I unlink my accounts later on?
Nope! Once you've linked your PSN and miHoYo accounts, there's no going back. So make sure you've got the correct accounts on both sides before making any commitments.
Are there any limitations to cross-save?
There are a couple, especially for players who started their account on their PS4 or PS5. Any PlayStation-exclusive items, like the glider and sword, can't be used when playing the game on PC. However, it seems like you'll be able to claim Horizon Zero Dawn's Aloy early on PlayStation and use her on PC with no restrictions.
Another thing to consider is that you can only make in-game purchases on the platform on which you started. So if you started on PlayStation, you won't be able to buy anything in-game on PC. You can use the miHoYo top-up centre to buy a monthly card or genesis crystals, but battle passes still need to be bought on your original device. Any genesis crystals you do buy are locked to the device you purchased them from, too. So if you have a stack of crystals on your PS4, convert them into primogems to use them on PC.
