Import Save to PS4 IMPORTANT!!!(1)Category: ConsoleAugust-18-2014 9:40 AM PDT (7 years ago) Go to Blizzard forum post
Hey Guy's
Anyone can Confirm or Explain How the Save thing Works? I know there is a Post from Blizz but they don't Really Talked about the Manual Save Import!

I Played D3 on PS3 but i guess i didn't Upload the Save to the Cloud. So there will be no Option to me to Transfer from PS3>PS4 Automaticly

That is Why i wanna Use my Old SAVEGAME from the USB
But my Question is now:
On my USB its the Old Root for the PS3 Save (Folder Construktion)

PS3>SAVEDATA>BLES01921-AUTOSAVE

If i Try to Import that Save over the PS4 Menu it won't Show Anything so i Exported a Save from PS4 to Show what the Folder Construktion Looks Like

PS4>SAVEDATA>"Folder Name of the Game"

But in my Old Save PS3 Save in that PS4>SAVEDATA>Folder but PS4 won't let me Import it.
So Now i got 2 Roots on my USB Stick

PS3>SAVEDATA>BLES01921-AUTOSAVE
PS4>SAVEDATA>BLES01921-AUTOSAVE

Or will Check Diablo my USB STICK for the Old PS3 Save to Import/Upgrade it to PS4?

I don't think you can manually import from PS3 to PS4 with a usb stick. You have to export the save game from within Diablo, you can't just copy a PS3 save directly to PS4 as they are different formats I would imagine.


This is correct.

The previous save file alone, will not be sufficient. In order to transfer the save file, you will need to have a copy of Diablo III - this can be a digital or physical copy. It doesn't have to be the original version that you previously had. When the game accesses the online network it will patch up to 1.0.4 (PlayStation) or 1.0.3 (Xbox). The game will then have an option in the 'more' section, which allows for the exportation of the game data. This option is found after you select 'more' on the main options panel within the game. Shortly thereafter that option is selected, you will see a confirmation that the save file has been exported.

When you acquire Ultimate Evil Edition and start the game, a message will pop up which asks you if you want to import the saved data. If you do not see this message, you can go into the options for Ultimate Evil Edition and choose to import data. If import data is found, you will then see a confirmation that the game data has been imported, and your characters will then be accessible from the selection screen.

If you do not have access to the original game and console, you would not be able to export that game data. Our support article about this process can be found here.

Edit: For clarification - the Battle.net account step is not required if you're going from the same brand (e.g. PS3 > PS4). However, doing so will still reward accounts with the Signet Ring of the Blizzard.

So you have to link your console account to battle.net even if you are transferring between the same console family? It's only mentioned in the instructions for transferring between console families.


Thanks for the catch! I went ahead and updated the original post. It's not necessary for transferring across the same family - however, linking your account via BNet still awards the ring. (see edit).
