After a decade of promises and little in the way of news, Ubisoft once again mentioned Beyond Good and Evil 2 at E3 2017. This time though, they had more than usual in the way of content and progress to show us.
Journey to System 3, for the prequel to one of Ubisoft’s most beloved games! 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.
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!
There is also a trailer breakdown with Michel Ancel which you can check out below:
Beyond Good and Evil 2 doesn’t currently have a release date or platforms but you can sign up at bgegame.com to help guide the development. After so many years of waiting, it seems like Ubisoft don’t want to risk developing the game alone and annoying the fan base of the original by not meeting their expectations.
