Beyond Good & Evilis the game that the under 20’s may not know, in fact, the first opus was released in 2003, 14 years ago already. It is with a magnificent cinematic trailer that the game is presented to us. A universe mixing fantasy and science fiction and protagonists half-human, half-animal. Beyond Good & Evil takes place in system 3, a solar system that contains many races and cultures living together in a steampunk universe where the law of every man for himself reigns supreme. This first trailer presents us with a charismatic tandem, a new game between a woman and a man-monkey.

 

Michel Ancel is very clear about what fans expect from the game:

We know that the expectations around Beyond Good & Evil 2 are enormous. We are creating a sci-fi space opera, a game in which players will fight for freedom alongside unforgettable characters and explore a vast and impressive solar system, while staying true to the spirit of Beyond Good & Evil.

The plot of Beyond Good & Evil 2 takes place before the adventures of Jade, is therefore a prequel! The player will play as a lowly bandit destined to become a legendary pirate and will be able to explore the galaxy alone or with his friends.

Ubisoft is offering fans of the game the opportunity to contribute to the foundations of the project by joining the Space Monkey program, which will select a few lucky winners who will have the chance to test the game’s elements during its development so that the developers in Montpellier can release it as successfully as possible.

At Sony’s conference, which followed Ubisoft’s, it was announced that the game would be available on PS4, putting an end to the rumour that Beyond Good & Evil 2 would be exclusive to Nintendo consoles. However, to date, no release date has been announced.
