Diablo 2 Resurrected Will Let You Import Save Data From Original Release
If you're still playing Diablo II over two decades later, you don't need to stop and start over when you pick up the remaster.
If you haven't stopped played the original Diablo II or still have access to your save in that game, you'll be able to transfer your progress into the upcoming Diablo II: Resurrected remaster. It all seamlessly transfers over. However, that isn't a mandatory decision.
"Yes, keep your old save files," Diablo II: Resurrected producer Matthew Cederquist told IGN. "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 single-player save files will carry over."
As revealed at BlizzConline 2021, Diablo II: Resurrected will feature a toggle that allows you to switch back and forth between the remaster's updated graphics and the original game's visuals. So you could port your original Diablo II save into the remaster and then switch to the original game's visuals and it would be like you never switched games. Why? Because you can. If you prefer, you can also keep them completely separate as two different games within the Battle.net launcher.
Diablo II: Resurrected will launch for Xbox Series X|S, PS5, Xbox One, PS4, PC, and Switch later this year and an alpha test is happening now. The remaster is being made by Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 developer Vicarious Visions, recently folded into Blizzard Entertainment.
