As you're no doubt already aware, Ubisoft showed off a trailer for Beyond Good & Evil 2 at E3. What we didn't see though was any gameplay, with Creative Director Michel Ancel stating that with work on the engine complete, development on the actual game portion has only just begun. While the upcoming Beyond Good and Evil 2 is now in development, the title's creative director uses the in-engine game footage to show off concepts and ideas for how the game will play.
And now we have a fascinating look at an in-engine demo of what Beyond Good & Evil 2 currently looks like.
Looks great so far. We didn't get much more than confirmation through a cinematic trailer, as well as the promise that it would be a large-scale game with spacecraft in an era before Jade had ever been born. But again, as an in-engine demo, how long will we have to wait until the game is out?
You'll be able to fly smaller spaceships from within your "mothership", as seen in the video, and explore wherever you want to go with a special jetpack.
The video, as you can see, is fifteen minutes and acts essentially as a tech demo.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 is a prequel to the original game, and will reportedly tell the story of how the human-animal hybrids, such as the monkey in the above demonstration and pigs from the original unveiling, attained freedom from slavery.
'That was one of the big features we wanted to make sure we had before showing the game to the public, to everybody, ' says Ancel.
