Hanging on to Mass Effect 3 saves 'wouldn’t be a bad idea', says BioWare

Published on February 2nd, 2012

Hang on to those saves once you’re done, folks – BioWare may have plans to make use of them in the future.

“It wouldn’t be a bad idea (to keep your ME3 saves)” said Associate Producer Mike Gamble talking to GamerZinest last week. “Obviously I can’t say anything, but it wouldn’t be a bad idea…”

Mass Effect 2 and 3 both use save states from the games prior to determine the player’s previous actions and use them to help shape the story.

Could a future Mass Effect game be affected by the decisions you make in Mass Effect 3?

Mass Effect 3 is the last game in the Shepard trilogy, but BioWare hasn’t ruled out the option to return to the Mass Effect universe in the future.

As for Shepard’s send-off, Gamble says that it has to leave players satisfied.

“We want the outcomes to be satisfying to the player. That doesn’t necessarily mean they’re all going to be happy or positive, but they have to be satisfying. Players have to understand that the choices they’ve been making in this game and in previous have had an impact, and that they’re an architect in what happens.”

How will Shepard’s story end? Find out on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on March 9th.
