The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Saves Won’t Import on Console
While it was a bit of a pipe dream, CD Projekt Red has confirmed old saves from previous consoles won't carry over to The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.
On the PC version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Joystiq reports that players have the option to load a save from The Witcher 2 in order to impact your gameplay. While the console versions of the game will not be supporting this feature, they will be supporting a different one where you can simulate a sate of the world from the previous games.
"The way how it works is that the game on the consoles will ask you whether you want to simulate a specific state of the world, coming from previous games," Miles Tost, CD Projekt Red's Level Designer, explained. "If you choose 'yes,' then you will get a special conversation at one part of the game - I don't want to spoil where it happens. It's basically a conversation with a character and the conversation is about the adventures of Geralt of Rivia. And you can basically deny or confirm whatever [the character] has heard of whatever tales of [Geralt.] It's actually kind of a cute mechanic. If you don't want to simulate the state then this conversation doesn't take place."
Then, CD Projekt Red's Community and Website Coordinator Marcin Momot also went on to confirm on Twitter that this feature will also be available on the PC version of the game. You know, in case you regret all of the life decisions you made for Geralt.
You can catch The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on May 19.
