Beyond Good and Evil 2 E3 2018 Pre-Alpha Is Looking Real Crazy!

The latest Beyond Good and Evil 2 Space Monkeys stream gave us a closer look at a whole bunch of new gameplay, featuring augments, ship-to-ship combat, combat skills, the scope of seamless co-op, how you can begin recruiting characters to your crew, and more. This recap gives a small taste, but for more, be sure to check out the full Space Monkeys livestream, with Senior Producer Guillaume Brunier and Associate Creative Director Emile Morel.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 E3 2018 Pre-Alpha is looking really promising and ambitious. The scope of the world seems insane and I had no idea it was going to be an online game too. I mean, I’d prefer it to be a single player experience but it’s fine. I think I’m most excited for the space exploration and the many vehicles that are going to be in the game. I’m not sure when this game will be released but I hope they take their time with Beyond Good and Evil 2.

In case you need a refresher on what this game will be all about:

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!

  1. It seems like it isn’t going to be the same cute game beyond good and evil was. While it looks good, I’m not sure it has captured the spirit of what I liked about the original game.

    • To be honest, I never played the first game. I only got interested when I saw the gameplay potential and heard that it’s going to be a prequel. Since you’ve played the first one, what’s your thoughts so far of Beyond Good and Evil 2?

      • I was kind of hoping for something a bit smaller scale and simple. The first game had a lot of charm and it was the narrative that drove it. You spent a lot of time photographing wildlife to earn money and combat was clunky but fun. I’m going to be honest, looking at the video there, it is almost a completely different game. I guess we’ll see as more details come out but I don’t think I’ll be rushing into this one.

      • I do like narratives in my games and I will admit that large worlds can be overwhelming, consequently detract from the experience you’ve mentioned but I think the dev seem to be very open to feedback with the game. I should be fine so long as they work with the core fan base on keeping the core of what makes Beyond Good and Evil great.
