Ubisoft finally showed Beyond Good & Evil 2 today during its Electronic Entertainment Expo event in Los Angeles.
Ubisoft announced the sequel way back in 2008, but we hadn’t seen much of anything about it since. Many assumed the game was dead, but Ubisoft insisted it was alive. It looks like they weren’t lying.
A trailer showed a monkey and a human running through fantastical city as they escaped back to their airship. We did not see any characters from the first game. Beyond Good & Evil 2 is actually a prequel, taking place before Jade, the hero of the first game, is born.
Michael Ancel, the game’s creative director, was emotional and teary as he took the stage after the re-reveal trailer.
It looks like the project has a bit of an overhaul since we last saw it. The first teaser showed the heroes of the first game, Jade and Pey’j. It looked like a sequel, but Beyond Good & Evil 2 is now a prequel.
