We've seen a few very early peeks at its engine and concept art, but nothing that really resembles gameplay, until now.

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.

See U Soon: Ubi’s Survival Horror FPS Zombi Comes To PC

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