The Witcher 2 allows imported savegames

CD Projekt Red has confirmed that The Witcher 2 will allow players to import save games from The Witcher.

GamesCom 2010: Developer CD Projekt Red has confirmed that upcoming RPG sequel The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings will allow players to import their save games from the original.

Importing your save games won't carry everything over, said Witcher 2 senior producer Tomasz Gop, because many of the underlying systems have been overhauled for the sequel. As a result, protagnist Geralt's abilities and skills will be essentially reset in The Witcher 2.

Some quest decisions and major choices will be carried over into The Witcher 2 however, allowing players to see the long term consequences of their actions – a key feature of the original game too.

CD Projekt Red presented several new sequences from The Witcher 2: Assassin of Kings to bit-tech today and we have to say that the game looks quite good – Joe's already labelled it his favourite thing from the whole show.

We'll be bringing you some more detailed thoughts on The Witcher 2 in a preview soon, but until then you can read our review of The Witcher: Enhanced Edition.

Well I know Mass Effect 2 allows you to do this and am currently playing the The Witcher: Enhanced Edition and it does look like a very promising game so far with only a few minor irks and have had some laughs along the way too.

The first game I remember importing saves was Baldur's Gate II (Golden Pantaloons anyone!) and there were probably others before that that someone else can remember.

The recent one you're probably talking about is Dragon Age II which was announced as importing recently.

Because this isn't a blog and therefore shouldn't be written in first person, even though I wanted to lend my opinion.

Effectively yes, but it's actually just thermal imaging, and is also possible in the first one :o)
