Hate to be the bearer of bad news, stoffe, but it looks like Dungeon Siege III will have save points instead of being able to save whenever you want.
They don't work in the demo, but there are unactive save points.
Lack of the ablility to save really stinks in the demo. Playing demo as Anjali again and got stuck 10 feet above the ground when switching between human and fire form. After trying everything I could think of to get back at ground level I just quit. I will not switch form again on stairs.
