E3 News Xbox One Xbox One S Xbox One X

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!

I'm the wrong side of 40 and I love games with great stories and multiplayer fun with friends. I started my gaming life on a Commodore Vic 20 (Google it!) Most importantly, I hold a strong belief that you should be as excellent to people on the internet as you would to them in real life!
