E3 2018: Development Still Hasn't Really Started on Beyond Good & Evil 2

E3 2018: Development Still Hasn't Really Started on Beyond Good & Evil 2

Ubisoft shared a stunning new cinematic trailer for Beyond Good and Evil 2 during its E3 2018 press conference.

It keeps sounding like BG&E2 is moving toward a more open-ended design - how will it compare to the best sandbox games on PC?

Most of the artwork shows familiar faces including former protagonist Jade, Callum, Peyj, and Uma.

Elon Musk Says Tesla Nearly Ready To Deliver Self-Driving Car
Musk has previously said the software will "never be perfect" and is not created to replace human control of a vehicle. Troubled electric-car maker Tesla may be set to deliver new, fully autonomous vehicle features later this summer.

Among other coming games shown off by Ubisoft was psychological thriller "Transference", a collaboration with another Hollywood star Elijah Wood, which will see players grapple with twists and mysteries in a deranged mind. Beyond Good and 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. We also got to learn about new characters including a Chief Cook named Paige and Callum your Chief Engineer.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the co-founder of online collaborative production company HitRecord, which will be assisting with the contribution of media to the game.

This seems to paint Beyond Good and Evil 2 as a game that, if nothing else, will be painting a picture of how Jade became who she was in the first title. Ubisoft released a full breakdown of the Beyond Good & Evil 2 trailer above, featuring commentary from developers. This new initiative to pull in organic content has appropriately been given the name The Space Monkey Project. Artists will be able to use HitRecord to create and submit assets that could potentially be featured in Beyond Good and Evil 2.
