Beyond Good and Evil 2 officially re-revealed -- It returns.

Ubisoft officially re-revealed Beyond Good and Evil 2 at its E3 2017 press conference. Platforms were not announced.

Beyond Good and Evil is a prequel to the original game featuring new characters. Ubisoft has also launched a “Space Monkey Program” inviting community members to participate in the development of the title.

Here’s an overview of the game, via Ubisoft:

The world – or rather worlds – of Beyond Good & Evil are back on the horizon with the unveiling of Beyond Good and Evil 2, a prequel and spiritual successor to the beloved 2003 classic. Helmed once again by developer Michel Ancel, Beyond Good and Evil 2 invites players to explore System 3, a vast solar system and a hub of interstellar colonization and commerce in the 24th century – and fans have a chance to help shape it by taking a role in the development process.

System 3, as it turns out, is a place where limited resources are viciously warred over by various private enterprises. The struggle for survival amid a rich milieu of evolved species and diverse cultures from Old Earth creates an ideal environment for space piracy, as a new generation of captains rise up to carve out a piece of the galaxy for themselves.

As you rise from lowly pirate to legendary captain, you’ll traverse System 3 at light speed to explore freely on your own or with friends. Presenting its solar system as a massive, seamless online environment, Beyond Good and Evil 2 gives players the chance to dive into the foundations of the franchise’s universe while traveling between diverse planets and moons in search of adventure.

“We know the expectations for Beyond Good and Evil 2 are enormous,” says Creative Director Michel Ancel. “We’re creating a sci-fi space opera, a game where players fight for freedom alongside unforgettable characters and explore a stunning and vast solar system, all while capturing the spirit of Beyond Good and Evil.”

Ancel wants your help to do it, too. The Beyond Good and Evil 2 team at Ubisoft Montpellier is looking for fans to help by sharing ideas and feedback, and encourage players to sign up now for the Space Monkey Program.

Looks great... but it's only a CG trailer. In fact, we have seen nothing yet.

That's one annoying character. Very off putting.

I'm disappointed that it's a fuckin prequel. Shouldn't you have more than 1 of anything before you make a prequel?!? I am, however, greatly relieved that Ancel is involved. With that said, I can't put my finger on it, but it doesn't seem very "Beyond Good and Evil"ly aside from the anthropomorphic creatures. It almost seems like they're just using the brand to sell the game. I'm also getting a Peter Molyneaux syndrome vibe. Hope they haven't bitten off more than they can chew. Regardless, I'll be in line to buy it though. It'll just be one of those games where I won't read the reviews and just buy the damn thing. Fingers (and everything else) crossed for this one.

looks like they scrapped everything they had from before.
