Ubisoft has shared a new work-in-progress gameplay video for Beyond Good and Evil 2.
Featured above, the new pre-alpha chunk of gameplay shows off how players can explore the game world via both ship and jetpack, how melee combat is looking, and how groups of players can cooperatively move at high speeds together in a squadron of vehicles.
During a new livestream for the game, Beyond Good and Evil 2 creative director Michel Ancel noted the development team is preparing a bunch of surprises for this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.
Here’s a rundown on the game:
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!
Beyond Good and Evil 2 still has no confirmed development platforms nor a solid release window.
