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.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 has been announced at the Ubisoft E3 conference. It is in development by Ubisoft Montpellier and is a prequel to the 2003 video game Beyond Good & Evil. Ubisoft describe the game as “Fight alongside unforgettable characters in a stunning new solar system, as you struggle for freedom and the right to determine your own fate among the stars. Play the adventure by yourself or with friends in a vast and seamless online playground.”
The release date and platforms are still to be confirmed but we assume it will be available on Xbox!
Beyond Good and Evil 2 is the spiritual successor to the cult classic, a prequel that will transport players into a profoundly multicultural world, capturing the spirit of the original with grandiose decors and intense dramas that play out across a vast universe. Through the Space Monkey Program, Ubisoft Montpellier will be developing the game alongside its community of fans.
System 3 has become the center of interstellar trade and colonization in the Milky Way of the 24th century, thanks to the creation of Hybrid slaves. While private enterprises fight over resources and power, the first colonists weave together the rich and diverse spiritual and cultural heritages of Old Earth to give meaning to their existence. In this new era of piracy, we will rise from lowly pirate to legendary captain at the helm of massive star-faring vessels, adventuring alongside crews of colorful characters to fight for freedom and the right to determine our own fate among the stars!
