Settings Reset Apex Legends PS5 Next-Gen Update

Installing the next-gen update on the PS5 is a bit more complicated compared to the Xbox Series X, which has the Smart Delivery feature. Players essentially need to manually install the PS5 version of Apex Legends. And after they install the next-gen Apex Legends, they also need to manually delete the PS4 version.

A number of players have done so before checking the PS5 version which might prove to be a mistake. Unfortunately, the PS5 version of Apex Legends doesn’t transfer your Apex Legends settings from PlayStation 4 automatically. Alas, players were not informed about this prior to the next-gen update. And when they started the PS5 version, they realised that their Apex Legends PS5 settings are set to default.

So, can you transfer your Apex Legends PS4 settings to PS5? Sad to say – no. The only way to have your old settings on the PS5 is by manually entering them into the next-gen version of the game. Thus, screenshot your settings on PS4 before you start the PS5 version or you’ll lose them forever. That’s the only way. Because, once you launch the PS5 version, you will not be able to play the PS4 version anymore. If you’ve already logged into the PS5 version before, your old PS4 settings are gone for good.
