Ubisoft brought Beyond Good & Evil 2 to its E3 2018 press conference Monday as expected. However, Senior Producer Guillaume Brunier and writer Gabrielle Shrager still managed to surprise the audience by inviting artists and musicians to contribute their creations to the game with the help of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and his HitRecord venture.
A new Beyond Good & Evil 2 trailer was showcased during Ubisoft's E3 press conference that re-introduced the crew from last year's trailer with a few changes and a shocking appearance of Jade at the end for fans of the first game. There is a new captain and Pey'j is the ship's cook as the ship's crew banters about until a massive threat closes in on their ship parked at the rings of Saturn.
The gigantic ship captures the crew and Jade makes an appearance alongside agents of Alpha Section. This obviously causes some confusion for fans of the original Beyond Good & Evil as the new title is a prequel that is supposed to be set many years before. How does Jade end up evil here in the prequel?
That will have to be a question answered for another day, unfortunately, as Ubisoft still has much work to do before Beyond Good & Evil 2 is released.
