Keep your Witcher 2 save files, because they’ll carry over into Wild Hunt

The Witcher

CD Projekt RED have confirmed that your decisions in The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings will carry over into The Witcher 3.

Although the company could not confirm whether console gamers would get access to the feature, CDPR’s Executive Producer John Mamais claimed that for PC players it would “definitely impact your playthrough.”

“We’re not sure how it’s going to work on the consoles yet,” he said to Videogamer, “but we might try to create some kind of game state even if you haven’t played. Obviously we didn’t make the game for the Playstation 3, so we might try to deliver something for the PS4 that could create some kind of profile for those players.”

Good news! Both my Xbox and PC endgame saves await :D

 

Hands up if you DIDN’T see this coming.

 

Well I carried over my Witcher 1 saves to the Witcher 2 and it had seemingly very little effect on the gameplay – ie I ended up staying with Shani and looking after the orphan boy in Witcher 1 and it didn’t seem to change anything at all in the Witcher 2.

On track record then, I have a feeling it will be a rather irrelevant feature.

Though I hope to be pleasantly mistaken on this.

 

meji,

This. I too chose Shawni, then was presented with an opening scene in The Witcher 2 of Geralt apparently commiting adultery by sleeping with Triss…right.

I wouldn’t hold my breath.

 

I get the feeling that it will play more of a part between witcher 2 and 3 than 1 and 2 did. However it would be awesome to see stuff from the first game carry over to the third.

 

Between TW1 and 2, save importing was an afterthought, as far as I remember the devs have said as much. This time around it’s intended to be a much bigger deal.

If I don’t keep my Blue Stripes tattoo, I’ll be sad.
