Ubisoft is up to the plate on the third day of E3 2018 conferences and, after introducing Just Dance 2019, Beyond Good & Evil got a new cinematic trailer. Audiences got a look at a crew that will likely be a major part of the new game and,
Joseph Gordon-Levitt was brought onto the stage and it was revealed that his Hit Record team will be collaborating with Ubisoft to make music for Beyond Good & Evil 2. Artists around the well will be able to contribute to Beyond Good & Evil via music, art, and more. During E3 2018, attendees and fans will be getting a look at the Genosha City area in BG&E2. It's currently in its Alpha stage. Ubisoft released a full breakdown of the Beyond Good & Evil 2 trailer above, featuring commentary from developers.
Update: hitRECord's Joseph Gordon-Levitt took to Twitter to address fan concerns if contributors would end up being paid for their work in the game. Neither Ubisoft nor Gordon-Levitt ended up confirming if or how the creators themselves will be paid. Following the show, Gordon-Levitt apologized to a fan, confirming that creators will indeed be paid for their efforts and will not, in fact, be creating assets for free
You are super right. Huge oversight. I think script got trimmed at last minute and we fucked that up. It’s hugely important to me that @hitrecord pays artists fairly. Since 2010 we’ve paid community almost $3 million https://t.co/oauU4IUiyE— Joseph Gordon-Levitt (@hitRECordJoe) June 11, 2018
