Beyond Good & Evil 2 is a Prequel
While Ubisoft provided several reasons to be excited for their lineup this year, nothing could compare to the unveiling of Beyond Good & Evil 2 at their E3 press conference. If you haven’t seen the trailer, you should check it out right now. After nearly 15 years since the release of the first game, fans will finally be able to revisit the beloved universe. However, things aren’t going to be as fans initially expected.
Instead of being a sequel to the classic game, Beyond Good & Evil 2 takes place before Jade was born. This is definitely an interesting approach, as it can help to set the stage and add some depth to the narrative of the original game. It’s not entirely clear how far before her birth this takes place, but the cities players will visit are full of life and diversity, as well as highly advanced technology.
