Sackboy: A Big Adventure will now receive online play, including cross-platform play, and save data transfers later in the year in a post-launch patch.
Originally due to be included in the game at launch, Sumo Digital's Ned Waterhouse has announced in a blog post that its online multiplayer will now be added in a patch later in 2020. This will also include the ability for PS4 and PS5 owners to play together.
Additionally, the patch will include the save data transfer ability, which will allow players of the PS4 version of the game to transfer their existing save data to the PS5 version. Anyone with the PS4 version is eligible for a free upgrade to the PS5 upgrade if they get the new console.
Sackboy: A Big Adventure launches for PS4 and PS5 on 12 November.
