    Hi quick question about the new ps5 beta, about a month ago i purchased the complete collector's edition and was just about to start playing but now there is a ps5 specific beta, as i have bought the complete edition i just wanted to know if its going to give me access to everything on the ps5 version once its out of beta.
    Does progress restart on ps5 or can ps4 save data be transferred.
    Lastly as im only starting would it be best to start the ps4 or ps5 version

    As progress is saved on Square-Enix's servers rather than Sony's, progress is synchronised over all platforms you play the game on.
    In terms of content, the PS5 will have everything you've paid for on the PS4 as long as it's registered to your account.

    In terms of what happens after the PS5 beta period, I can't quite remember but in the past, it was a free upgrade to the newer versions.
    Worst case scenario, the PS5 version will go until the full release, but you'll always have the PS4 version to fall back on until then.

    As you are first starting, I don't see any harm starting with the PS5 version.
    It might just feel a bit weird because the new PS5 features will go if you go back to the PS4 version.

    Hopefully that helps.

    If it is like the ps3 beta pre launch, I believe progress was capped to level 20 but it may be a higher cap now if they have one. And your progress was saved and you continued from where you left off.

    If you solely play the ps5 beta any progress you make should continue into full release, however I dont know if you will be able to switch between versions in the beta period but when it is over your progress will stay the same across all platforms, I can currently play the ps5 version up to heavensward and on the pc up to shadowbringers and I can play the same character without losing anything other than zones I dont have access to on ps4.
