I know a lot of people are going to be excited about the prospect of importing their decades-old character into Diablo II: Resurrected when it launches later this year. I also know a lot of people will likely enjoy starting fresh.
Arriving later this year on both consoles and PC, the remaster that Blizzard is working on will work your old saves. “Yes! Keep your old save files,” said Matthew Cederquist, Game Producer for Diablo II: Resurrected, speaking to IGN ME. “Back when we were working on [the remaster], we wondered if the old save files would work, so we kind of shoved it in, and it worked! So yes, your local singleplayer save files will carry over.”
It should be mentioned that this will only work for those who own the original game on PC. If you’re playing on Xbox One, PS4, or Switch, well, uh, don’t expect this to work. since the game never launched on consoles (Duh.) But, you’ll get cross-generational progression and more importantly, a shared stash, which fans have wanted forever.
I’m curious to see though if you’ll be able to import your save and then move it across to say, your copy on the Switch. And if that works, then this remaster is going consume my life all over again. I said my goodbyes years ago but it seems like it was all for nothing because just when I thought I was out, they pulled me back in.
