Diablo 2: Resurrected will allow players to use their old Diablo 2 PC save files

It was recently announced that Diablo 2: Resurrected will be making its way to Nintendo Switch and other platforms sometime later this year. Now, thanks to an IGN interview with the Blizzard development team, it’s been revealed that players who still have their old save files on PC for the original title will be able to transfer their progress. The team were understandably surprised it worked given that the original game is 20 years old and said “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 supports full cross-progression, so technically you’ll be able to boot up your save file on the new game on PC and carry on the progress over to your Switch or other gaming platform of your choice.

  1. But why?
    Cheating was quite easy online back then.
    Old saves would still have the advantages gained from map hacks and other cheating methods.
    And PVP for new player would be absolutely pointless, though pointless it was back then as well.
    But otherwise, I’m still interested in the game, as I used to play the original a lot. But I would not use my old saves, even if I could find them somewhere. It has been so long time now, that I’d rather experience it from the start, and not shortcut to end.

    1. You will not be able to use your existing online “” account characters in resurrected. You will however, be able to use your offline saves on resurrected if you still have them saved locally on your PC. Hope that clears things up!

      1. I guess thats good. but still wouldnt bother with my old saves, if I ended up getting the game, and as I would get it on Switch likely, it would not even matter if I had my old saves somewhere.
