Some Diablo II players may be wondering if they can boot up their old save file when Diablo II Resurrected is released. A save from 20 years ago couldn’t transfer over to today, right? Well, according to a recent IGN Middle East interview with game producer Matthew Cederquist, the upcoming remaster will let players do just that.
Cederquist stated that the remaster will allow anyone to transfer their save from the original game into Diablo II Resurrected. It is pretty amazing that those saves from over 20 years ago can still be continued today.
The producer mentioned that the devs were incredibly surprised to find out that throwing the old save files into the remaster worked. “Back when we were working on [the remaster], we wondered if the old save files would work and we kind of shoved it in and it worked,” Cederquist stated. “And we were like, ‘okay, that’s the best feature ever.'”
Cederquist did not mention if this would be only available for the PC version of the game. If the save functionality comes to PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, or Nintendo Switch when the game is released sometime this year, we will be sure to let you know.
