BioWare QA chap Jack Lamden has confirmed that those hankering for Mass Effect 2 will benefit from hanging onto their progress from the first games.
“Hang on to your Mass Effect 1 saves,” said the developer in a forum post.
How saved from the first game will affect play in the sequel is unconfirmed.
The first Mass Effect 2 movie was shown last night, as seen here.
No date or platforms for the game have been announced as yet.
