So yes, if you have an old save with characters you love, you will be able to play that save with new graphics and feel the nostalgia pumping up.
Game designer Andre Abrahamian said “When we first started working on the game, we wanted to keep all the gameplay aspects, like discovering the Horadric Cube recipes, or the deep itemization systems or the drop rates, and all the storytelling. But when we approach things like the art, we wanted to push it and modernize it as much as we could.”
