You can always expect one long thought dead continuation of a video game to come out of nowhere and blow the roof off whatever E3 conference its being featured at and oh boy, did UbiSoft end their presentation this year with a bang by showing the trailer for the long awaited, Beyond Good and Evil 2.
Take a look at it for yourself below.
Released in 2003, Beyond Good & Evil was much beloved, but never got off the ground sales wise and has since developed a major cult following among gamers. Despite all of that, game director Michel Ancel had stated his desires to do a sequel and its been a roller coaster ride as it if it would happen ever since 2008 and right now, many fans are happy to finally get off that ride and look forward to the game.
The original game followed investigator and martial artist, Jade as she works within a resistance movement in order to blow the lid off a planet-wide alien conspiracy.
Though this won’t be a direct follow up it seems as Ancel has stated that Beyond Good and Evil 2 is actually a prequel. Part of a statement from UbiSoft revealed this saying, “Beyond Good & 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.”
UbiSoft Montpellier is developing the game, which currently does not have a release date.
