Does the idea of ditching your beloved character decked out from countless Andariel and Mephisto runs from Diablo 2 fill you with dread? Despair not — a recent interview with Diablo 2: Resurrected‘s game producer, Matthew Cederquist confirms that your meticulously built character from the OG Diablo 2 will be fully accessible in the upcoming remaster.
“Yes! Keep your old save files,” said Cederquist, when asked about the possibility of transferring old save files in an interview with IGN Middle East. “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.”
Cederquist added the reaction of the development team was more than favorable when they added the old save file import feature for Diablo 2: Resurrected. “[When it worked], we were like, ‘okay, that’s the best feature ever’,” he added. For those players that want to relive the original Diablo 2 experience, there will be an toggle option to play the game in its legacy form.
Are you looking forward to dusting off your old Diablo 2 character and churning out some Andy and Meph runs with updated graphics and performance thanks to the old save file import feature for Diablo 2: Resurrected?
Diablo 2: Resurrected is expected to release sometime in 2021 for the Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Playstation 4, Playstation 5, PC and Nintendo Switch formats.
