Beyond Good & Evil for PC will be free next week via Uplay

This makes sense since the sequel is now officially in 'pre-production.'

First we get word that Beyond Good & Evil 2 is in pre-production, and now Ubisoft is enticing fans to get a free copy of the original on PC>

Ubisoft has announced that starting on October 12, the original Beyond Good & Evil will be free for Ubisoft Club members via Uplay. This seems to reinforce the notion that it is full-steam ahead on the sequel with an effort to remind fans why they loved the original so much in the first place.

If you missed out on the original game from 2003, now might be a good time to try it, given that the sequel is (apparently) finally under way again.

Back in March, rumors were circulating that Nintendo was funding the sequel as an NX exclusive. Then in early April, Ubisoft renewed the trademark for the franchise.
