Mass Effect 4 Might Not Import Mass Effect Saves

It seems that Mass Effect 4 may not give you the option to import your old save files from the Mass Effect Trilogy.

In a conversation on twitter, developer Johnathan Warner replied to a question from a fan, stating that there is “no need to worry about saves”. Check out the tweet in question, here.

In my mind, this can mean one of two things for the game. Either Mass Effect 4 will be a prequel to the other Mass Effect games, rendering the choices made in that trilogy irrelevant to this story. Or, Mass Effect 4 will release with a feature akin to Dragon Age Keep which was used to transfer choices into Dragon Age: Inquisition.

Which would you prefer? Seeing Mass Effect 4 as a prequel title, or the use of a choice-creation feature as was used in Bioware’s previous title, Dragon Age: Inquisition? Let us know in the comments section below!

    I think I’m fine either way. I’d like them to tally up which ending was picked the most and tell the story from there. Though that does deminish the efforts from previous titles, a fresh start to a trilogy isn’t a bad idea.

    I’d prefer the Dragon Age Keep approach, but as long as it’s more Mass Effect I’m good.

    I think its a no brained really, if ME4 isn’t a prequel and previous decisions play a part towards the story, it should either import them if you have them (obviously) or if you’re like me and you played them on Xbox 360 but now own a PS4 for example and don’t have access to that saved data, then the choice feature would be the most logical approach, right?
