Almost 15 year after the orig­i­nal title, Beyond Good and Evil 2 has been revealed with a new trail­er. Unlike pre­vi­ous teasers, this is a full length trail­er and Ubisoft has giv­en fur­ther details on the game. 

In a bit of a sur­prise move, Beyond Good and Evil 2 will actu­al­ly be a pre­quel to the orig­i­nal game. The exact time frame is unknown, but the sto­ry takes place in Sys­tem 3 before Jade’s birth. Here is how Ubisoft describes the sto­ry:

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!”

Game­play details or still scare, how­ev­er the game is described as a shared world that allows play­er to go out alone or play with friends in a “seam­less online play­ground”. 

The devel­op­ers also announced they will be tak­ing feed­back from fans through a new pro­gram called Space Mon­keys. Those inter­est­ed can sign-up through the offi­cial web­site.
