How to Import PoE 1 Save File in Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire
Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire, is the follow up to the excellent old-school style iso-RPG from Obsidian Entertainment. In the first game, you’re forced to make many choices that have an impact not only in your present situation, but also, you’ll make calls that impact the entire world. PoE 2: Deadfire is a direct sequel, and picks up right where the first game leaves off for the most part. Obsidian doesn’t shy away from your big choices, in fact, it takes into account all of them. Whether you’re importing a save file, or starting fresh, at a point early on in the game you’ll need to input what choices you made either by directly choosing them again, or by importing a save file from PoE 1.
To import your Pillars of Eternity 1 save file, you’ll first need to just play along through the early part of the game. You don’t need to play very long, just about five minutes or so. At that point you’ll be forced to sit down with a certain character, and discuss your actions from the first game. It’s at that point that you’ll be prompted to either import your save, or input/change your history manually. If you have a save file from PoE 1, it is during this point that it will appear and you can import it into the game.
Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire weighs your choices from the first game heavily, so pick carefully if you’re doing it over. And, if you regret what you did in the first game, use this opportunity to fix your mistakes because this is your first and only chance to do so in the game.
That does it for how to import your PoE 1 save file. Best of luck in the sequel!
