Beyond Good & Evil 2 Concept Video Leaks?

By Nick Breckon, May 08, 2009 2:58pm PDT A video found on French site Eversonic appears to be a proof-of-concept for Ubisoft's upcoming Beyond Good & Evil sequel.

The footage, noticed by Kotaku, shows a female avatar--closely resembling the look of character Jade from the first Beyond Good & Evil 2 trailer--traversing an urban cityscape. The unlocked camera suggests that the footage is either an in-game cinematic or proof-of-concept video.

The sequel to the 2003 cult-hit action-adventure game was announced last year. No release date or platforms have yet been announced.

  • Not really much doubt this is BG&E2 considering the character is the exact same from the announcement trailer so long ago and what little you hear of the woman voice is spot on for Jade.

    I like the more realistic direction they're taking this time around, just hope they keep that fantastic surreal soundtrack style the original game had. And for those complaining it doesn't seem like the original, did you completely miss all the chase and running scenes in the first game? I remember reading somewhere than Ancel, the lead developer, had always wanted to take a more realistic approach but was held back by what they were capable of at the time so I'm not really surprised.

    On that note Ancel is french, so it's not really 'that' surprising that this would be leaked onto a french website. If anything it just supports the idea that this is BG&E2.

  • What the fuck is wrong with people here, did anyone actually play Beyond Good and Evil. Saying that this video is not what the game should be is utter bullshit, the original had so many different gameplay styles, racing, platforming, stealth, photography, puzzles, etc. etc. This will of course be ONE aspect of the game, and it looks amazing and much better than most parkour games that have been released already like Mirror's Edge or Prince of Persia.

    I trust that it is not being compromised by Ubisoft all that much, Ancel is a great developer, I trust he knows what he's doing.
