Already own Diablo III on PS3 or Xbox 360, but plan on picking up the Ultimate Evil Edition on PS4 or Xbox One? Then you’re in luck, as Blizzard confirmed today that you can export your old Diablo III save from your last-gen console right to your current-gen.
The best part is that you can export your save to either of the current-gen consoles, so if you played Diablo III on PS3 but pick up the Ultimate Evil Edition on Xbox One, you’ll still be able to move your files. Unfortunately it doesn’t work for last-gen versions, so you won’t be able to export your Xbox 360 Diablo III file to the PS3 version of the Ultimate Evil Edition.
Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition releases on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, and PS3 on August 19th.
For step-by-step instructions on how to export your save, check out the official blog post on Battle.net.

I hope other games will adopt this as well.
Funny thing is that I avoided getting it on “last gen” knowing that I would enjoy it even more on “next gen” once it was out. Guess I could have been playing it all along… Still, stoked to play this soon!
I passed on last-gen as well, knowing it would eventually hit Xbox One and PS4. I wish I would have known!
