Beyond Good and Evil 2 new cinematic trailer and details

Ubisoft showed off a highly polished live action trailer of Beyond Good and Evil 2, featuring a very young – and good looking Jade – while CGI, it looks every bit as enticing as when we saw the game at last year’s E3.

During the show, Ubisoft are showing off a behind closed doors demo but they did show limited pre-alpha gameplay footage. The open universe of Beyond Good and Evil 2 can be played solo or in co-op.

Ubisoft also announced the Space Monkey Program, a platform for the community to contribute ideas, artwork and music, and be a part of creating the game.

Platforms are still unannounced.

E3 2018 – Square Enix Roundup

The Square Enix E3 show consisted of a thirty minute pre-recorded segment instead of the live spectacles that we have witnessed from EA, Microsoft and Bethesda. They kicked off showing more gameplay footage of the forthcoming Shadow Of The Tomb Raider, with Lara taking the role of a killing machine as she stalks her enemies in an overgrown jungle. There were also re-caps of a few of the games featured in yesterday’s Xbox show, with Just Cause 4, Kingdom Hearts 3, Captain Spirit and Nier Automata all featuring, however further information was very scant.

The other games that were featured in very quick trailers were three Final Fantasy XIV Online monikered titles –  Stormblood: Final Fantasy XIV Online, Under the Moonlight and Final Fantasy XIV Online X Monster Hunter World (coming in Summer 2018).

We then moved onto Dragon Quest XI – Echoes of an Elusive Age followed by a new Platinum Games title called Babylon’s Fall which is launching in 2019 on PS4 and Steam. Then we saw Octopath Traveller on the Nintendo Switch.

Finally we saw a trailer for The Quiet Man which is coming to PS4 and Steam. This was completely different to everything else seen as it started as a CGI trailer that seamlessly moved into gameplay footage. More footage of this to come in August.

Overall, this felt like a very rushed and thrown together thirty minutes, that didn’t give us any further details on games that we hadn’t seen before.
