Podcast: The best and worst of E3 2018

The festival of dumb explosions known as E3 is over, but that won’t stop us. The RPS podcast, the Electronic Wireless Show, goes deep into the show, picking out our favourite games, the oddest moments, and best rats (spoiler: it was the one crushed by a shelf in the Resident Evil 2 trailer). We’re also introducing two new voices this week. Who are these strange…

HitRecord’s claim that it’s community collaboration, not spec work for Beyond Good & Evil 2 rings hollow

There's a dark cloud looming over Ubisoft's Beyond Good and Evil 2, and I'm not just talking about the one in the stunning E3 trailer. Alongside a lot of good things at the E3 showing of the game was a section on how Joseph Gordon-Levitt's HitRecord was going to be handling the inclusion of community-created art and assets for the game. While creators will be paid…

Every PC game at Ubisoft’s E3 Press Conference

Ubisoft's conference included everything we expected, from a closer look at Beyond Good & Evil 2, to confirmation of the leaked Assassin's Creed Odyssey, to the now traditional (and delightful) Just Dance dancy party. If you don't have time to watch the conference in its entirety however, here is a showcase of the trailers that were shown and links to the associated news from Ubisoft.

Jade and Pey’j return in Beyond Good & Evil 2

A new Beyond Good & Evil 2 trailer hot out of E3 reveals that Ubisoft's sequel/prequel isn't nearly as far removed from the first game as assumed, as both Jade and Pey'j are in it. It's pretty cryptic, as Jade seems to be with those naughty Alpha Sections, but I'm just so happy to see my dear uncle Pey'j again. Ubisoft also announced a scheme…

Our first peek at Beyond Good & Evil 2’s sky-pirate swashbucklery

For all its glitz, glamour and stunning CGI teaser trailers, Beyond Good & Evil 2 - Michel Ancel's open-world prequel to 2003's cult action-adventure - is still mostly shrouded in mystery. We've seen a few very early peeks at its engine and concept art, but nothing that really resembles gameplay, until now. Granted, it's still some obviously pre-alpha development clips, but it gives us a brief but…

Beyond Good and Evil 2 teases its ships and characters

Last night, Ubisoft Montpellier hosted a livestream for Beyond Good and Evil 2, spilling more details about the space-pirate romp’s story, characters and wide variety of flashy spaceships. The livestream is an hour long and is mostly the devs chatting away on a sofa, so if you want a more condensed version, you can also watch a dev diary that touches on the same things…

Grab a new look at Beyond Good & Evil 2, live right now

Hurry hurry hurry (or, y'know, watch the archived stream a bit later) - Ubisoft are just about to show off the much-anticipated, much-delayed sequel Beyond Good and Evil 2. Michael Ancel and colleagues are live on Twitch, talking more about - and most importantly showing more - BGE2, a game that finally stepped out of the shadows in this Summer's E3. Swearing, space pirates, online…

Beyond Good and Evil 2’s in-engine demo of space flight

Ubisoft showed off the sweary monkeys and multicultural vistas of Beyond Good and Evil 2 [official site] at last week’s E3, but the CGI trailer was light on details. It was a big explodey, gorgeous-looking spectacle with no solid information. Now they’re showing some “in-engine” footage to the public, which was already seen by a few journos at the show, courtesy of Michel Ancel’s video…

Every PC game announced or trailered at E3 2017

Here we have gathered every announcement, reveal, and exciting new trailer that emerged from the barrage of screamed press conferences over the last few days. And lots of it looks rather…

Beyond Good and Evil 2 is online world of space pirates

Oh look at that, Beyond Good and Evil 2 [official site] has been shown off at E3 (sans ampersand), featuring anthropomorphic monkeys, criminal pigs, Hindu and Buddhist temples projecting neon lights, angry space police with silly missiles, steering wheels in the shape of skulls and quite a lot more. It’s an explosive trailer and you should probably see it for yourself so get down there…

A Beyond Good Offer: Beyond Good & Evil Is Free

Seems like we post about how Beyond Good & Evil 2 is/is not coming every six months or so. HAPPY FACE! Oh no but SADFACE! And so forth. What we don't often do is talk about the Beyond Good & Evil game that does really, truly, honestly, no honestly exist. Its beloved nature is so often discussed only in terms of frustration that it never…

As Ever: Beyond Good & Evil 2 Is “Still On The Way”

Hoist E3 above the bloodstone with ropes of braided ivy then circle thrice with burning mugwort. Cleanse your obsidian dagger with goat's milk then dry it with moss. Holding E3 firmly by the neck, plunge your blade into its guts and draw down, let the guts spill onto the bloodstone, unspooling like a VHS tape (you may need to reach in and yank to get…

Yes, Horace, There Is A Beyond Good & Evil 2

Just as Santa Claus is definitely real, we have a duty and a responsibility to support and encourage our youngers' belief in Beyond Good & Evil 2. They may not even know what it is, let alone the historical origins of this tradition, but they understand that it is important. They understand that we become excited by any hint of its existence. My little niece…

Have You Played… Beyond Good & Evil?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game recommendations. One a day, every weekday of the year, perhaps for all time. We've written 175 of these Have You Playeds. When I searched the database to check we'd included Beyond Good & Evil [official site] already, I then searched it twice more in case Google Sheets had lost their minds. Nope, it was us!

Beyond Good & Evil 2 Continues As Ancel Goes A Bit Indie

It's nice to have a reminder that Ubisoft really do intend to release Beyond Good & Evil 2, isn't it? After six years, I don't really think of it as an actual game I might play one day, more a pleasant idea I'm glad Ubisoft still share. The latest of many casual statements that yeah, they're thinkin' about it too comes to assuage concerns after…

Ubisoft Explains The Wait For Beyond Good And Evil 2

One of the greater tragedies of the modern age (mainly of gaming, I suppose, but also just in general) is that we've seen neither hide nor hair of Beyond Good and Evil 2 since a fairly insubstantial leak earlier this year. And before that, it was pretty much all radio silence. That's painfully upsetting, because the original was a flawed yet fascinating romp through a…

Beyond Screenshots: BGE2 Gets New Footage

When will Beyond Good & Evil 2 come out? In our lifetimes? Shortly after humanity begins leaving its bipedal bootprints on the deepest reaches of space? 2014? (If you're a character from a piece of 1950s sci-fi literature, "all of the above" is also a possibility.) Series mastermind Michel Ancel has opted to keep it all under lock and key, but the Internet - somewhat…

BGE2 Not Yet Gone To The Great Beyond

It wasn't happening and then it was happening and then it maybe wasn't again and now it is again. The cosmic ballet continues. After making the internet en masse do its sex face with news that Michel Ancel's Beyond Good & Evil 2 was in development and later seeing an apparent leak of some spine-tickling possible concept footage, hope it would happen seemed to evaporate.…
