Some new information and a new video for the upcoming action adventure “Beyond Good & Evil 2” have been revealed this evening. Thus, one can get another impression of Michel Ancel’s new game.
This evening, Ubisoft and Ubisoft Montpellier hosted a livestream about the upcoming action adventure “Beyond Good & Evil 2” and shared a lot of information. As part of the broadcast, Creative Director Michel Ancel, Senior Producer Guillaume Brunier and Narrative Director Gabrielle Shrager gave a look at different characters, ships and more.
Among other things, the developers have presented various artworks on humanoid animal characters before they presented the 3D modeling system. With this the developers can create the animals and put hybrids together. Furthermore, the customizable spaceships have been presented, which will be available in different shapes and sizes.
In addition, Ancel has once again stressed that you can play “Beyond Good & Evil 2” in single player. However, you want to invite players to play with friends. “Part of the story will be the story you tell when you meet your friends and play with them,” Brunier said. However, you will also get traditional stories with a beginning, a middle section, an end, strong characters and emotions. The well-known chimpanzee Knox will receive a story in which one travels to his home planet and gets to know his family.
Furthermore, Brunier revealed that the size of the development team has almost tripled since the E3 announcement and that they have received a great response. However, additional employees are needed to implement the vision. Currently, the developers are mainly concerned with the creation of a real, vibrant city, which should invite to explore.
Next, Ancel talked about the original plan for “Beyond Good & Evil”: “The first idea for BG & E was to make three games, a trilogy, but when we started thinking about the next game, we thought the world was so big and so dense that it would be a shame not to talk about its origins, who is Jade, she is very mysterious, she has a dark side, we want to delve deeper into these things. ”
Accordingly, one day Ancel seems to plan with a true successor to “Beyond Good & Evil,” which continues the story of the original. First, you will tell the stories of this world in the form of a prequel. A developer diary and some artwork give another look at the new part:
