Bioware : Your Mass Effect 2 Saves Might not Work With Mass Effect 3

1 min read


[Beneath here be spoilers]

You know how in Mass Effect 2 you could import your character from the first game, bringing with it some extra cash, some resources, a level or two – and all your moral choices?

Notice how in the loading screens for Mass Effect 2, it says that you’ll be able to export your character to the last game in the current Mass Effect trilogy? that may not necessarily be the case, according to Bioware.

[Final Spoiler Alert!]

If your Shepard end the second game pushing up space daisies, you won’t be able to resurrect him or her for the final game.

“Dead is dead. Mass Effect 3, as with the rest of the trilogy, is Shepard’s story. If you have a dead Shepard at the end of Mass Effect 2, that saved game won’t import into Mass Effect 3,” he said.

“You can play Mass Effect 3 if you died in Mass Effect 2 of course, but you’ll have to create a new Shepard. Harsh? Yes. But we wouldn’t be serious about the concept of a suicide mission if you couldn’t die and your death didn’t have serious consequences.”

There you go – if you’ve finished the game, and it resulted in your protagonist kicking the bucket, you may wish to reload a save and do things a little differently. Or not. It’s your game, with your Shepard, and your choices.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
