The Witcher 2 Dev Diary Reveals Saved Game Importing

The story of The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings is the focus of a new developer diary for the RPG sequel, revealing players will be able to import saves from The Witcher.

"There will be a mechanism for importing your status from the first game," one member of developer CD Projekt RED explains. "Also, players will see the choices they made in part one reflected in part two. For instance, certain characters from The Witcher might treat us differently depending on how we completed that game."

You'll no doubt be delighted to hear that "erotic relations" return, though RED claims they won't be "a mini-game, a gadget or something just for fun," saying "If these important relations are to be in the game, they need to be part of the drama that is playing out."

The Witcher 2 is due out on PC in North America between between January 1 and March 31, 2011, according to publisher Atari. Console editions might also arrive later.
