You should keep your Mass Effect 3 saves, says Bioware

by | @AttackFanboy | on February 6, 2012

The release of Mass Effect 3 is fast approaching, and in a little over a week, gamers will get their first hands on with the third entry in the trilogy by way of the Mass Effect 3 demo.  While Bioware has said that Mass Effect 3 marks the end of the Commander Shepard storyline within the Mass Effect universe, there are likely still stories to tell.  Whether that be in the form of a prequel, sequel, or spin-off to the game is still unknown, but those are the avenues that Bioware is exploring, according to Mike Gamble of the developer.

“We have so much to draw from”, said Gamble in a recent interview with OXM.  It’s pretty much a given at this point that Bioware will continue the Mass Effect franchise until demand drys up, and as Gamble points out in the interview, this could entail shaping these new experiences around your previous playthroughs.

When asked about the possibility of future Mass Effect games, Gamble explained that it might be a good practice to hold on to your save data after completing Mass Effect 3.

“It wouldn’t be a bad idea to keep your Mass Effect 3 saves.  Obviously I can’t say anything but it wouldn’t be a bad idea.”  The Mass Effect franchise has tailored each game around players who managed to hang on to their save data throughout the years.  Saving important decisions that you’ve made across your time with the game, and shaping your story around it has been one of the major selling points of the Mass Effect franchise.
