Beyond Good and Evil 2 Gets Beautiful Images Showing Familiar Characters

Ubisoft led its press conference on Monday with a brand new trailer for Beyond Good and Evil 2, the game that surprised everyone at the end of its 2017 conference. The short clip offers clues about the title's moment-to-moment action and, most importantly, a sneak peek at the game's villain. The video didn't provide much in the way of new details about the game's storyline or gameplay, but it did feature a couple of familiar faces from the first Beyond Good and Evil, suggesting the game will have a much stronger connection to its predecessor than previously believed. We finally saw Beyond Good and Evil 2 return at Ubisoft's E3 show past year, this time with no Jade and a focus on space pirates. In Beyond Good & Evil 2, you are your own space pirate captain and you are free to choose your own path in this vast open universe. Since we already know Beyond Good and Evil 2 is a prequel, we presumably get to meet Jade before she winds up on a secluded island and is formally recruited by IRIS Network to investigate DomZ and Alpha Sections.

At this point, it's unclear just how Pey'j and Jade tie into Beyond Good and Evil 2's storyline. This is all being fascilitated through Ubisoft's Space Monkeys community program. The game promises solo and co-op multiplayer in a "vast and seamless online playground", which will take place in a new solar system. Ubisoft is working with Joseph Gordon Levitt's company HitRecord to allow fan submissions of music and art for the game. Its release date has yet to be announced, and there's no word about which platforms it'll support.
