AN ICONIC LICENSE
In 2003, Ubisoft released a game that marked the beginning of Ubisoft’s most iconic license: Beyond Good and Evil. Players then discovered the mining planet of Hyllis in 2435, its human and hybrid population. Players enjoyed the game, mixing combat, infiltration, and puzzle elements. Playing as Jade, its iconic journalist protagonist, they faced a dual-threat: the Alpha Sections, a faction that took control of the planet through a military dictatorship, and the DomZ, an alien species which has waged war over Hillys for over 20 years. Everything was developed by our dear friends at Ubisoft Montpellier.
After receiving great critical acclaim from the public and the press, players worldwide had the pleasure of learning about a sequel to this legendary game in 2017, which is still under development by Ubisoft Montpellier with a little help from us here at Ubisoft Paris!
WELCOME TO SYSTEM 3
Designed as a prequel to the first game, Beyond Good and Evil 2 takes us to System 3, populated by human clones and hybrids. This time around, the player will have the opportunity to play as a character that they have created themselves by selecting their gender, appearance, and DNA by choosing their species or creating a hybrid. Players will join a crew of space pirates in a game that promises to be gigantic: forget all the open worlds you have known; Beyond Good and Evil 2 gives you an entire galaxy to explore, with its different planets, cities, and civilizations.
As for those nostalgic for the first episode, you may come across some familiar faces.
