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.
