How to transfer from PC to Switch.


The first thing you need to know about how to transfer PC save to Switch is that cross-save on Switch is based on the Steam and GOG cloud saves, making things much easier but you will need Steam or GOG versions of the game to save transfers work.

The first thing you will have to do to enable cross-save functionality and transfer Witcher 3 saves from PC to your Nintendo is to open the game and wait for the main menu to load.

When this happens, you will have to open the "Save to the cloud" option and choose between Steam or GOG.com depending on the version of your PC and log in to your Steam or GOG account depending on your choice.

Once logged in and linked the account you will have to return to the menu Save in the cloud and select the option Upload game to transfer and load your PC and save on Nintendo Switch.

Keep in mind that Switch users can also upload Switch changes to Steam or GOG cloud servers for when they want to recover the game on the PC after playing on the fly.

This is useful if you want to recover the game on the PC after playing on the fly. Below, we show you how to transfer your Witcher 3 save from Switch to PC.

For this the first thing you have to do is repeat the same previous steps from PC to Switch until linking the Steam or GOG account.

After linking the account you will have to go to the main menu of the game on Switch and choose the Cloud Saved option, then you will have to open the Upload option to transfer your saved to the cloud to be able to upload the saved file from the PC version of the game.

It is very important that you keep in mind that Switch and PC changes may not always be compatible due to some errors due to some DLC packages or also because of the number of mods you have in your version of the PC game, another reason it could be that you changed the name of the saved file and placed a different one from the one you initially used.

For those who are wondering if you can transfer between PC and PS4 or Xbox One, they should know that so far there is no official support that allows it, however, it can be done with the use of mods but it is not something that developers have officially implemented.

In the same way you cannot make save transfers between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, although this does not mean that this function can not be added at some time by the developers, meanwhile we can use the PC and Switch.

 This is all you need to know about how to transfer PC save to Switch in Witcher 3 and now that you know how simple and easy it is we hope you can take advantage of this function from now on. In the meantime we will remain very aware in case the developers come to launch the cross save for other platforms at some point.
