When Mass Effect 2 went under development the first thing Bioware announced was that Mass Effect saves will work in Mass Effect, hence changing some of the story elements in the sequel. But the case might actually be different for the third game in the series. Producer Casey Hudson speaking to GameInformer said: “ead 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. 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.”
But you never know until the game is released. Right now we are enjoying Mass Effect 2 so check back later for more on Mass Effect “3”.
