Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition will allow you to import your characters from PS3 and Xbox 360 – even across console families.
Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition arrives on PS3, Xbox 360, PS4 and Xbox One on August 19, almost a full year after the base game released on PS3 and Xbox 360 in September 2013.
For those who’ve sunk time and effort into the original, there’s good news: the Ultimate Evil Edition supports cross-save.
You won’t be able to take your save files back and forth, but Destructoid reports you will be able to import your progress and characters from the PS3 and Xbox 360 base game onto a newer console.
To our surprise and delight, that applies across console families – so your PS3 save will work on PS4 or Xbox One – and so will your Xbox 360 save.
This delightful feature is powered by Battle.net – just link your Gamertag and PSN ID via your web profile, then fire up Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition and use the import option in the game menu.
Unfortunately, you won’t be able to import from PS4 to Xbox One and vice verse, so consider well which platform you’re going to stick with before you splash out.
Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition includes the base game and Reaper of Souls expansion. We wouldn’t have believed it, but Diablo 3 really works on consoles.
