Cross-Brand Character Transfers in Ultimate Evil Edition

The upcoming console Diablo III on PS4 and Xbox One can import characters from PS3 and Xbox 360

Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition
The upcoming Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition release is a new version of the game, that builds on the previous standard Diablo III console game. The UEE on the next-gen PlayStation 4 and Xbox One will be able to import older Xbox 360 and PS3 character saves, whether they are from the same brand or across platforms. This will allow players who have switched console brands to still transfer characters that they played on the original console Diablo III. Blizzard also announced that the PS3 and PS4 versions of the game can now be pre-purchased digitally from the PlayStation Store, to jump into the game as soon as it is released on August 19.

Cross-Platform Character Transfers
Lylirra provided initial info on the character transfers that will be available in the Ultimate Evil Edition. This will involve a patch after the game is released, and setting up a account to transfer the character saves. More details about the process will be provided after that console Ultimate Evil Edition patch has been released.
Just to confirm, in an upcoming console patch for PS3 and Xbox 360, we'll be enabling what we're calling "cross-brand" or "cross-generational" transfers for Ultimate Evil Edition. As the name suggests, these transfers will allow players to copy their character save data across brands and across platform generations.

We'll have more details to share once the patch is live, including how to complete a transfer with step-by-step instructions and how account linking works. In the meantime, here's a quick list of what's supported:

  • PS3 > Xbox One
  • Xbox 360 > PS4
  • PS3 > PS4
  • Xbox 360 > Xbox One

The goal of cross-brand/cross-generational transfers is to support players who may have switched brands when next-gen systems were released for PlayStation and Xbox, but don't want to leave their progress from original Diablo III behind when upgrading to Ultimate Evil Edition.

As a follow up to that, please note that the following cross-platform transfers will not be supported:

  • Xbox 360 > PS3
  • PS3 > Xbox 360

For same-platform upgrades to Ultimate Evil Edition (PS3 > PS3 and Xbox 360 > Xbox 360), your character save data will be automatically loaded once the game is installed. No additional steps needed!

Of course this does NOT mean we'll be able to use our PC characters on console.

Correct. :)
