We got footage of Good and Evil 2 for the first time in 2008, but now Ubisoft has finally confirmed the sequel. Well it’s actually a prequel and to my knowledge we won’t be seeing the original protagonist Jade because the new story takes place before her birth. To me this is a really weird decision since Jade was a big thing back in the days of the first game, and she was really a loved, unique character especially because she was a strong female lead and female lead characters were and still are rare. I hope they will have another strong female protagonist in this prequel or else i will be thoroughly disappointed.
Here’s a picture of the original game and footage of the 2008 sequel that didn’t happen. You can see that Jade was making a comeback in the original idea of the sequel.
Back to the confirmed game. The trailer looks great I can’t deny that. The world of Beyond Good and Evil really sparkles with unique beauty unlike anything else I’ve ever seen. Of course it’s only a trailer and so we can’t know what the actual game will look like, but I hope it’s as great as the videos I’ve seen thus far.
The world is supposed to be a seamless sand box where you get to wander. You will also have a space ship with which you get to explore space. Sounds great but also tricky especially after the disappointment with No Man’s Sky, I do hope they make it simple enough to work well! You will have a crew on your ship and they have different skills and purpose of their own. Co-op has been added to the experience aswell. There’s not much on the story available yet, but there’s talk of some super weapon to find or something like that. Here’s the official description(from trustedreviews.com) of the game: “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!”
And here’s a neat picture of some of the game’s characters
