Original Diablo 2 Save Files Will Carry Over To The Remaster

Remember the days of old when Diablo 2 had just released? That was more than 20 years ago. Yeah, let’s not dwell on that. Thankfully, Blizzard and company are giving long-time fans the opportunity to port save decades old save files to the upcoming remaster.

“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! And we were like, ‘okay, that’s the best feature ever,'” Diablo 2: Resurrected producer Matthew Cederquist told IGN Middle East.

Twenty years is a long time to hold on to a save file, so the percentage of Diablo 2 fans with prime save files to carry over are limited (probably). If you’re new to the Diablo 2 experience, however, this remaster is the best way to immerse yourself in a classic RPG. The remaster preserved the same renown gameplay from yesteryear with remastered graphics, planned support for cross-progression, 7.1 surround sound, updated Battle.net support, and more. Experience Tristram, the Barracks, Burial Grounds, Lut Gholein, and the Sewers up to 4K.

According to the official Diablo 2: Resurrected website: “Diablo II: Resurrected includes all content from both Diablo II and its epic expansion Diablo II: Lord of Destruction. Battle your way through icy caverns, horrific tombs filled with undead abominations, and frozen wastelands to the frigid summit of Mount Arreat and stop Baal, the Lord of Destruction. Raise hell with two Lord of Destruction playable classes—the cunning Assassin, master of traps and shadow disciplines, and the savage Druid, a bold shapeshifter and summoner who commands primal elemental magic.”

Diablo 2: Resurrected is set to launch on PC, PS4, Ps5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and the Nintendo Switch sometime this year.
