Ubisoft reveals ‘Beyond Good and Evil 2’ trailer at E3

Ubisoft has been killing it with their game reveals today during their conference for E3, including the reveal of their long-awaited game Beyond Good and Evil 2. The game, which is the prequel to the hit 2003 game Beyond Good and Evil, is finally here with a three-minute cinematic spot. The prequel was announced in 2008 but was never followed up. Now, with the reveal, we can tell you the game takes place before Jade, the main character from the first game, is born.

In the trailer, we see a cheeky monkey who swindles a pig out of a disk and escapes the police who are chasing after him and his human companion. They fly to a hidden ship where they hand the disk over to be unlocked. The disk is revealed to be a map for them to find ‘true freedom’.

Fans will have the opportunity to sign up for the “Space Monkey” program for early information and possible playtime.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 Official Synopsis:

Journey to System 3, for the prequel to one of Ubisoft’s most beloved games! Fight alongside unforgettable characters in a stunning new solar system, as you struggle for freedom and the right to determine your own fate among the stars. Play the adventure by yourself or with friends in a vast and seamless online playground.

Beyond Good & 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. Through the Space Monkey Program, Ubisoft Montpellier will be developing the game alongside its community of fans.

Michael Ancel, designer and director on both games, has made posts on his social media account on the prequel. Here, he provides commentary on the game’s new trailer.
