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 below. He calls it a “mix between a technological demonstration of the engine that we call ‘Voyage’ and the actual game with some gameplay elements”. So, a tech demo then.

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 and SORT IT OUT.

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 saw a sequel. Well, now’s the time to establish a) why so many people still bang on about Michael ‘Rayman’ Ancel’s jumpy-thumpy adventure and b) whether they should still in good conscience be doing so. Ubisoft have made the whole kit’n’kaboodle free for a few days. Read the rest of this entry »

New Beyond Good & Evil Confirmed With Adorable Pig

If you’ve been keenly awaiting Beyond Good & Evil 2 these eight long years, hanging on the edge of your seat for so long that your flesh has grown into the fabric and you’ll need to be cut out, good news: Ubisoft have confirmed… something that is likely Beyond Good & Evil 2. They’re definitely doing a new Beyond Good & Evil, at least. We’ve known about their desire to for yonks, thanks to irregular mentions and reassurances, but making even a vague announcement suggests they’re cracking on with it. Series creator Michel Ancel has been blasting concept art around too.

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 leaves a plate of K-Bups on the mantlepiece for Uncle Pey’j every E3 Eve.

So yes, BG&E2 is real, okay, because BG&E head honch Michel Ancel talked about it recently, okay.

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!

BGE2 Not Yet Gone To The Great Beyond

clickmeclickmeclickmeclickme

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. Silence fell. Grown men wept. Or at least tweeted. Then! Suddenly! As publishers seem to have had some sort of green light to start muttering about next-generation consoles all of a sudden, Ubisoft have joined the fray. Well, abstractly. Contrary to what other sites have been screaming hysterically today, Ancel and his team have not outright stated that the game’s bound for future-devices, instead claiming that the game “needs more tech” and they’ll work out what can actually run it once it’s more or less complete.

The Very Important List Of PC Games, Part 2/5

Yesterday, as you may have noted, Dr Rossignol began our lecture series on the most important PC games of all time.

In this second part Professor John Walker explains the varying importanceness of a second collection of the most important games to have graced the PC in the last 150 years. Read on for one fifth of the elements necessary for enlightenment. And doffs of hats to Intel’s AppUp developer program for sponsoring this most critical of series.

Beyond Beyond Good & Evil

SHE ISN'T REAL

Coincidence is a funny thing. There we all are griping that us Euro-folk can’t buy the fabulous adventure-platformer-everythinger cult classic Beyond Good & Evil over Steam, while the US-folk are, no doubt, busy replaying the thing with unfettered joy in their spoilt, spoilt hearts. And then the sequel gets announced. Lummee.
