'Cross-brand' Diablo 3 save transfers confirmed

Retain your character in Ultimate Evil Edition even if you're moving from PlayStation to Xbox

Diablo 3 saves can be moved from PlayStation to Xbox and vice versa when consumers buy the upcoming Ultimate Evil Edition

Posting on blog, Blizzard explained that "cross-brand" and "cross-generational" transfers have been enabled and will allow players to export save data from Diablo 3 and import it to Ultimate Evil Edition on PS4 or Xbox One.


In a somewhat unprecedented move, save can be transferred across platforms, which means players can take a Diablo 3 PS3 save and move it to the Ultimate Evil Edition on the Xbox One, or from Xbox 360 to PS4. Full instructions on how to do so follow:

In August, Blizzard announced Diablo 3 sales had reached over 20 million units worldwide across all platforms, including the Reaper of Souls expansion and digital sales.

The Diablo 3: Reaper of Souls Ultimate Evil Edition release date is August 19 on PS3, Xbox 360, PS4 and Xbox One.
