As we have alredy read and discovered in the past, Mass Effect 2 players will have the option to import save files from Mass Effect which will bring all the descisions made in the first game to unfold into the sequel.
According to Chris Priestly, Community Coorindator at BioWare all your questions are answered in his recent forum post here.
In a nutshell, you won’t be able to play as your super-high-level Shepard when you import the save game, however, the higher your character’s level was when you finished Mass Effect, the better bonuses your Mass Effect 2 Shepard will receive. Some of the bonuses Chris mentioned include extra money or crafting resources when you start the game.
ALSO, Chris has said that the game won’t have a “New Game Plus” option, but multiple playthroughs with the same Shepard will be possible.
Very interesting stuff. What do you guys think. Let us know. Leave a comment below
