Beyond Good & Evil 2

Beyond Good and Evil 2

A prequel to the iconic Beyond Good & Evil, developed by an internal Ubisoft studio led by Michel Ancel. The game takes players on a journey to a planetary system called System 3 – the center of intergalactic trade and the most wretched hive of piracy and illegal business. Players get at their disposal an enormous open world comprising gigantic planets and moons; however, before exploring it, one has to create his own character. During the game, a player can observe how his protagonist climbs the social ladder on his / her journey across the galaxy (one can choose to travel afoot or onboard one of the many available spaceships). The gameplay revolves around completing diversified story and side missions with the non-linear structure, which all can be executed anyway player sees fit. On top of it all, the game features high-quality visuals and a soundtrack combining many musical genres.

In its video games portfolio, Ubisoft has a number of more or less original brands.. Without a doubt, the second installment in the Beyond Good & Evil series, awaited by players for over 14 years, is one of those more original. Beyond Good & Evil 2, created by Michel Ancel and his development team, has been released also on Xbox One and utilizes additional technological potential of its more powerful version – Xbox One X. The largest difference lies in the visuals, which run at the 4K resolution – an impressive result, considering the vast open world present in the game. The technology Beyond Good & Evil 2 is based on, allowed developers to implement into the game celestial bodies with their size being a perfect representation of the real planets and other cosmic hulks.

For over 20 years, Michel Ancel’s contribution to the video game industry has been praised by the gaming community around the world. It results from an unusual philosophy he implements into the game development processes – his games are not only unique but also free of any confines. It is none other than Michel Ancel, who created the Rayman game series (with its first installment released in 1996) and the 2003’s Beyond Good & Evil. The latter position has become iconic, and it was not until 8 years after its original release that Ubisoft published a remastered edition – Beyond Good & Evil HD. Because the remastered game has been a huge success, Ubisoft gave a green light for the creation of the sequel. Beyond Good & Evil 2 has been developed for a dozen or so years – the developers explain they have been waiting for the moment, when their game concept becomes possible to realize with the available technology. Finally, the game has been released on PC / Windows but also on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Plot

Beyond Good & Evil 2 is a prequel to a 2003’s iconic game developed by a Michel Ancel’s team. The game has some references to the first installment in the series, e.g. some characters are ancestors of the characters from Beyond Good & Evil.

The story is set in the 22nd century – 200 years before Jade begins her fight with aggressive aliens who attacked the planet of Hyllis. Empires from Earth, like China and India, are fueled by the desire to colonize the space, thus they began the production of human-animal hybrids – they were to become slaves able to work in the most difficult conditions. This allowed humans to inhabit new planets; however, due to the cultural diversity, the colonies began to exhibit influences from all over the world, while the social-economic changes have led to the creation of entirely new religions.

One of the discovered exoplanetary systems is System 3, which quickly became the center of the intergalactic trade and the most wretched hive of piracy and illegal business. This is also where the players come in and assume the role of a character they create themselves (before starting the game, one can select his character’s sex and general appearance). The main protagonist begins his journey right at the bottom of the social ladder – as the story progresses, the protagonist climbs this ladder by acquiring new allies and becoming more and more recognizable throughout System 3. In relatively short time, our character gets to board a giant spaceship – from this time forth, his base.

Mechanics

Beyond Good & Evil 2 is an extremely ambitious piece of art. The game offers an extensive open world, which comprises diverse planets and moons along with all the applicable laws of physics; for example, whenever one gets to admire a sunset, it is a result of the movements of actual celestial bodies implemented into the game. The planets’ surfaces hum with life, while all the metropolises, towns, settlements, and many other locations hide secrets worth discovering. All this is possible thanks to the procedural generation technology utilized by developers.

The gameplay’s core is the aspect of exploration, both afoot and onboard numerous vehicles (ground, air, and space vehicles). The aforementioned spaceships allow players to take a trip to the planet’s orbit, but also to travel between different celestial bodies. Interestingly enough, our space voyages are not interrupted by any loading screens. The game is fueled by both story and side missions. All the objectives leave players some leeway when it comes to the methods of execution, due to the non-linear and diverse nature of the missions. Developers wanted players to “write their own recipes for a good time”.

Technical Aspects

The PlayStation 4 release of Beyond Good & Evil 2 features high-quality 3D visuals with character models and futuristic locations polished to the smallest detail. Another aspect bound to satisfy the players is the soundtracks, which combines various musical genres.

Misc.

Beyond Good & Evil 2 has been created in cooperation with the gaming community – through the so-called Space Monkey Program, players could submit their ideas on the in-game content.
