Ubisoft has released a brand new gameplay video from Beyond Good & Evil 2, detailing how movement and combat work in the much-anticipated action adventure RPG, and giving more context in terms of storyline.
The production of the title is now at its peak as Ubisoft Montpellier has now 120 people working on it and is being supported by offices in Barcelona, Bordeaux, and Sofia for additional manpower.
These are all the details about the story that were offered together with the video you can watch below:
“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 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. Through the Space Monkey Program, Ubisoft Montpellier will be developing the game alongside its community of fans.
System 3 has become the center of interstellar trade and colonization in the Milky Way of the 24th century, thanks to the creation of Hybrid slaves. While private enterprises fight over resources and power, the first colonists weave together the rich and diverse spiritual and cultural heritages of Old Earth to give meaning to their existence. In this new era of piracy, we will rise from lowly pirate to legendary captain at the helm of massive star-faring vessels, adventuring alongside crews of colorful characters to fight for freedom and the right to determine our own fate among the stars!”.
On top of this, we’ve been informed that the game will feature a lot of “dark places”, which could also include brothels (something which was asked by fans during the Space Monkey Report second live stream).
More “surprises” are expected to be dropped at E3 2018 in June and, as we’re still waiting for information about not only the release window but also about the platforms, we sure believe something big is coming soon.
