Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition Will Feature Cross Platform Saves

If you’re planning to buy Diablo III on PS4 or Xbox One, but you’re worried about losing your progress and character from the last generation versions, then you won’t have to worry for much longer.

Blizzard will allow you to export your save and use it on another console. You’re able to do this between current generation consoles, or mix and match and even transfer from PS3 to Xbox One or Xbox 360 to PS4. This is all done through Battle.net which makes it possible for cross platform saves.

The most common method, transferring from PS3 to PS4 or Xbox 360 or Xbox One is below, but there are also step-by-step guides for the other methods over on Battle.net. There’s also ways to do it manually.

PS3 to PS4, Xbox 360 to Xbox One

If you will be playing Ultimate Evil Edition on a different console (same brand, different generation), follow the steps below to transfer your data.

Exporting Your Save from Diablo III:

Step 1: Insert your original Diablo III disc or launch the digital version of the game.
Step 2: Download and install patch 1.0.3 for Diablo III.
Step 3: Log in to your Sony Entertainment Network (SEN) or Xbox Live (XBL) account.
Step 4: Proceed to the main menu. Navigate to “More” > “Export Save.”
Step 5: Confirm this selection and proceed through any prompts that appear.

Success! You’ve exported your save data.

Importing Your Save to Ultimate Evil Edition:

Step 1: Log in to the same SEN or XBLaccount from which you exported your save.
Step 2: Insert your Ultimate Evil Edition disc or launch the digital version of the game.

Success! The game will now automatically check our servers for exported save data and load it on your new platform.

  1. Every time I see the Diablo3 logo I do a Homer Simpson tippy-toe dance in excitement. Come on and release now, please.

  2. That’s pretty impressive. First game I’ve heard of doing that.

  3. So i guess i’m kinda screwed if ive traded in my game then….

  4. Some more good news courtesy of the latest post on the EU blog.

    “One more cool piece of news for PS4 players: the next-gen console architecture makes it much easier for us to offer ongoing patch support for the PS4 version of the Ultimate Evil Edition. This means that as we continue to patch the game on PC, we’ll now be able to roll out related patch content, as appropriate, on PS4 as well. It’ll take some additional time beyond the PC patch rollout, but we’ll get them to you as quickly as possible.”

    • That is good news!!
      Very pleased now.
      :)
