Gamers who have saved the original Diablo 2 will be able to transfer their progress to the remaster.
In an interview with IGN Middle East, project producer Matthew Söderkvist told reporters that the original Diablo 2 saves will be compatible with Diablo 2 Resurrected. It is noteworthy that initially this feature was not planned, nevertheless, the team decided to test it, and found out that the remaster can load the original save.
“When we were working on [the remaster], we wondered if the old save files would work. In the end, we just abandoned them and they worked. And we thought, ‘Okay, this is the best function in the world,’ ”said Sederkvist.
It is not yet known whether this will work with other platforms. Diablo 2 Resurrected will be released not only on PC, but also on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Switch, and will support cross-platform saves. In theory, the player can load the old save on the PC version, and then continue the passage on the same Switch.
