Diablo III on PS4 getting cross-platform character import

According to a recent report by Destructoid, it was revealed that a cross-platform import feature will make its way to the console version of Diablo III. Players that choose to upgrade their last-gen copy can bring their characters to the PlayStation 4 or Xbox One version of the game, regardless of the original platform that it was played on.

Players need to simply link their PlayStation Network or Xbox Live ID’s to a account in order to access this feature. In-game menus will streamline the process, allowing for a seamless transition into the Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition on new-gen platforms. One item of note however, is that save data cannot be transferred between Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

Excited by this news? Does this make double-dipping a bit more enticing? Sound off in the comments below.
