Last year saw the launch of new generation consoles and alongside that was quite the diverse amount of games both big and small. One of those was Bugsnax, an adventure survival game filled with animals that are food and food that are animals. Or something. It launched alongside Sony’s PS5, but also came to PS4 and now the latest update will let those users transfer upward.
The new update, 1.06, is live now and the big feature it brings is the ability to transfer saves between the PS4 and PS5 versions of the games. If you recall, the PS5 Bugsnax was given away for PS Plus at the launch of the system. So if you redeemed it but have only been able to play the PS4 version, you can now transfer without issue. There’s also various other things here, such additional save protections and some improved gameplay tweaks. You can see the full patch notes below (via Twisted Voxel).
