If you are sitting on a pile of Stone of Jordans on your old Diablo 2 character, fortune favours the hoarder.
Diablo II: Resurrected producer Matthew Cederquist has told IGN Middle East that players will be able to transfer our original Diablo II save files to Diablo II: Resurrected when it launches.
“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.”
That means brand new visuals and sounds, but the same old character.
Being able to go back to your original Diablo II save files would be a great fan-service for those who are still playing the action role-playing (ARPG) game after its release decades ago. Other than importing original saves, we’ve also seen how you can toggle between the visuals of the remake and the original Diablo II first-hand during BlizzCon 2021.
A promise to honour the original classic, Diablo II: Resurrected’s release date is still unannounced but we know that it won’t be too long before Diablo’s resurrection since the alpha tests are now available for registration.
Diablo II: Resurrected is now available for pre-purchase on Blizzard for US$39.99.
