Can Elex 1 save files be imported into Elex 2?

This section of the Elex 2 guide will answer whether players can transfer their Elex 1 saves to maintain Jax’s equipment and abilities in the second game.

This guide will tackle the question of whether it’s possible to import Elex 1 save files into Elex 2. This is something players may be wondering about in order to keep Jax’s equipment, skills, and choices from the first game in the series.

Be warned, there are minor spoilers in this section regarding the events of the Elex 2 prologue. They are necessary to understand the topic of save file importing. However, there won’t be any spoilers regarding the rest of the campaign in Elex 2.

The events of Elex 2 take place many years after Elex 1. Jax is once again the main character and players will encounter many familiar characters from the first game.

Unfortunately, there is no way to import old save files from Elex 1. There are a few reasons for this:

  1. In the prologue of Elex 2, Jax’s home is attacked, and he must escape, which explains the loss of his equipment. Players must start collecting weapons, armor, and other items from scratch.
  2. Also during the prologue, the main character is infected and must deal with the effects of the infection throughout the game. When an NPC saves him, players must start developing Jax from level 1 again. This includes buying attributes and learning new skills from trainers.

In short, Jax’s development in Elex 2 is reset, and players must start from scratch. The game doesn’t allow players to transfer choices made in the first game, and it’s up to the developers to decide which scenes are canon. Regrettably, players have no control over this.


1. Can I import my saved game from Elex 1 to Elex 2?

Unfortunately, it is not possible to directly import your saved game from Elex 1 to Elex 2. The two games have different game engines and storylines, so the save files are not compatible with each other. However, some players have reported that they were able to recreate their character and choices from Elex 1 in Elex 2, which can provide a similar experience. Keep in mind that Elex 2 takes place several years after the events of the first game, so some choices may not have a direct impact on the storyline.

2. What happens if I don’t have a saved game from Elex 1?

If you don’t have a saved game from Elex 1, don’t worry! Elex 2 is a standalone game that can be played without any knowledge of the first game. The story and characters are introduced from scratch, and the game provides enough context for new players to understand the world and its factions. However, if you have played Elex 1 before, you may recognize some characters and locations that are referenced in Elex 2.

3. Can I transfer my character’s appearance from Elex 1 to Elex 2?

No, you cannot transfer your character’s appearance from Elex 1 to Elex 2. The character creation system in Elex 2 is different from the first game, so you will need to create a new character from scratch. However, you can customize your character’s appearance and choose from different factions and abilities, which can affect the gameplay and storyline. So, even if you can’t import your old character, you can still create a unique and memorable character in Elex 2.
