Beyond Good and Evil 2 prototype gameplay video available now, and looking amazing.
Now imagine the scale, but 10x smaller at launch.
triggered @ you
ambitious as Fk ....not one a chance they ill release such a gigantic game (with no problems in it)....just wait smthing like Watch DOgs 2 with a monkey protagonist this time
One X will handle it quite well, probably by then PS5.
In other words the game we all wanted from No Mans Sky but never got. Looks impressive.
Bro even at 10x smaller ....that engine is INSANE!!! No way the final product will be like this. I will be shocked
Might not even be out this generation seeing that there were no platforms announced for it...
@erik, my thoughts exactly. There isn't a game the exists right now, in any state, that I want to play more than this. But I'm imagining this game will take some time, Im expecting a dense world at a scale and detail we haven't seen before.
Lol, but it's so true.
hmmm.. that looked like an xbox controller he was playing with..
Lmfao i read that comment with the shamwow guy 😂
Sadly, that is how things tend to go. Edit: Though in this case, hope this is an exception.
So big wait 12 months folks 😑
12 months?? Ha!!! More like 12 years!!! By what he just showed and talked about, there's no way anything will be able to run a game like that, seamlessly travelling through solar systems, heavily populated planets with unique events happening all the time and also having structured missions and story. I'll eat my underpants if the final game releases in the next 5 years and delivers on everything he just showed and claimed what will be in the final product. I think this is a bit over ambitious.
I thought they didn't start development yet?
They have. I hope this doesn't take an age in development. That scale!
Yeah the scale is huge. Kinda of surprised that they can pull this off on current consoles or at least they're attempting to. Wouldn't be surprise if this gets moved on to next gen. Reminds me of Star Citizen.
I'll admit that this looks pretty cool, but how long is it going to take to develop? Are we going to be waiting another 14 years? And in that time will this vision for the game be scrapped like the last one? Also, how close to the final game is this? Will they really be able to pull this off? I won't be surprised if they run into serious problems during development that force them to downsize the game. In a way though, I'm kind of glad that they have a lot more work to do, because it means they have plenty of time to change the edginess of the game and make it more like the original game tonally.
Well I'm not really sure especially since I don't even know how long they might have been working on this game. I mean looking at the footage it's clear they have a significant amount done in regards to concept.
But remember how far along the original BG&E2 seemed - that Jade gameplay video. If it is far along in development, they should just call it something else and remove all the BG&E references from it or something. At least make it only spiritually related or something. This game really isn't like the original at all by the looks of things.
Yea, they have some really refined assets. But as far as bringing it together as a game, who knows how long? They didn't showcase any city street level stuff. At least they're acknowledging it's a "prototype" and not promising anything as final product. I understand the hesitation to trust Ubisoft to deliver. I want to believe in this game. Dammit. I want to believe. Comeon Ubisoft, let's do this. I'm willing to wait for this one if they can deliver.
The tech in there looks great. Kind of what I wanted in no man's sky. Exploring but having actual places to go. People and cities to see. Truth be known though, I would have liked to have continued the adventures of Jade and Pey'j. Can't have everything I guess after 15 years. Maybe we'll see a young Pey'j and Jade's mom and dad. And something happens leading to Pey'j looking after Jade when she's born and they lived together until we saw them in the original BG&E. Who knows.
yeah i hope there's story elements from the first game in here. I think showing a pig dude and what appears to be a relative of jade's in the teaser, is indication that there will be a connection plot wise
It's a prequel. Take place before the original game.
I know, but there can still be a connection,as in showing us Jade's parents in their prime, as well as a young Pey'j and how he became close to Jade's family before her birth
all i see is no man sky, also isnt the first game an action adventure?
Yes the first games and action-adventure what's telling you that this isn't? The only comparison I see to No Man's sky is being able to fly out of the atmosphere in a spaceship other than that I don't see anything else. And mind you there's many games that can actually do that so please let's not turn this into our generation of Grand Theft Auto in terms of always using that damn game to describe this. I'm pretty positive they don't own the concept of flying a damn ship out of a planet that can't really be all that there is to No Man's sky and I'm pretty sure that's not all there is to this game.
The scale and spaceship flying is interesting. Wanna see the cities, characters and other gameplay though PS: Like that the skeleton is holding a copy of the first game on the right
So you are not playing as Jade from the first game?
No it's a prequel. :(
well everyone hates ubisoft but they are always a step ahead i knw thr games r nt up to the mark but they always try to inovate for eg ac origins
Even though I don't really care for a lot of their online focus I always appreciate that they're at least trying with their Concepts. I may not play a lot of their games but I at least respect the Publishers efforts in trying to do different things with some of those open-world ideas. I mean personally I would like it more if they focused on more single-player games Next Generation but that's just my bias speaking of the single-player concept. Lol I'm seriously not trying to be ultra biased on how I feel about this publisher and I'm trying my best to remain unbiased in regards to looking at their efforts. This publisher gets a lot of hate but a lot of it I actually think is undeserving because I don't really think someone should hate a publisher simply because they focused on a concept that they don't care for it's just a matter of opinions and that's okay, but that doesn't really mean the publisher is bad and that they have a bunch of bad development teams it simply means they are some Gamers that don't care for online and that's completely fine but let's not try to use our bias as a rating scale for the publisher as I noticed many people can't resist doing. I will admit that I only own one Ubisoft game and that's Rainbow Six but I could still look at their portfolio and say they've done a great job with new intellectual properties. They tried and at the end of the day I think that's all we can really ask for I would actually rather them try something new even if it's not as Unruh I like then have them continue to do the same thing over and over again.
I still remember buying the first Beyond Good and Evil for 20$, I didnt even know what it was.
This will be on next gen consoles....again.
....I don't want to play as that goddamn monkey.
He was super annoying. For half the trailer I thought he was going to be a bad guy and suddenly Jade and Pey'j would cross paths with him and steal what he stole from the pig guy. Then I realized he was supposed to be the "good guy" of the trailer and I was really dang disappointed.
Yeah ,he was obnoxious as all hell. I want Jade or at the very least Pey'j
.....whats that supposed to mean...??? Hmmm???!!! 🤔 Just kidding 😝
Well, you won't have to.
you arent playing the monkey, but according to micheal , you can create whatever character you want. so wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is totally always online.
I really want that game, but it seems too ambitious. If they can pull it off, day one for sure. I expect 2019 at the very earliest. More likely it will be 2020 or later and be on the next generation.
I don't know if I could say the release is that far away if you factor that we don't really know how long they've been developing this game ,(unless they've reported something) I also don't actually think what they're doing is all that ambitious you have to understand several games of already done with this is so it is definitely within the realm of possibility, I mean we're not talking about something that's unproven and impossible we're talking about something that literally is happening right now with several games. Making a world of bigger doesn't actually mean it's harder.
Man... I hope you're right. But, while there are games where you can explore planets, fly into space and go to other planets to explore them seamlessly, having full cities on those planets with characters that are reactive to your past decisions, having impactors change the face of the planet which npcs react to, and at the graphical fidelity on display in the video?... I've never seen anything like that before.
Incredible scale! I really hope this is as good as it can be.
No Man's Sky 2
Just curious Is this game coming to PC?
Well that looks pretty freaking amazingg.
Is really impressive what their engine can do, they definitely taking cues from Start Citizen or No Mans Sky but it shows also that they probably not even started the main plot of Beyond Good and Evil 2, so the end game could be anything and who knows in how many years it could even be released, this demonstration also feels like a Kickstarter project. :S
That scale is insane but he should have went down to ground level to show what they can do. Everything he was talking about I loved but at the same time I was like "stay calm and keep focussed", it made me think of Giant Bomb's description of Ancel just eating cheese and going crazy haha. He's got a lot of ideas in his head about the game, I just hope they can go everything he wants the game to do.
But just the fact they are willing to go to this point shows that they care, un like some space games that were released not long ago 😒
Not getting hyped just yet. Remember No Man's Lie? Although this is a MUCH bigger team however.
This game is possible on the PS5 and next xbox machine. It's too much for a current generation game.
CAPTIVATED!! That all I gotta say. But this is just a engine demo. Doesn't mean the actual game will be able do all this, but WOW!! I love everything that was shown. So much that I'm saving this to my Youtube favorites!!
This just got me little bit excited about the game, hopefully it turns out to be kinda like one mans lie without the lie.
Judging from comments here and there, developers just CAN NOT win. Looks amazing at start? "No, it's gonna get downgraded when it gets released." Looks like crap when it they first show it off? "Yep, looks like garbage, what were they thinking?" No one seems to give anybody a chance anymore, just negativity.
and than same as with every other game - they test the engine on toysoles (ps and box ) and 3y old pc systems and they go shit we need to downgrade, downsize, change the scope and the story, make ai as stupid as can be and put shity xray vision, enemy tagging and minimaps in the game.
Michel Ancel is one of the old school greatest developers,i love the work he and hes teams put on there projects the best Ubisoft manager and producer,working on Wild that looks marvelous and fresh and now taking again the helm of his baby BGE Ip.
Reminds me of Star Citizen and No Mans Sky. I wonder if it will have a main plot? I kind of hope so but the way these games are now, you pretty much create your own adventures.
I wonder with this tech engine, it will be playable on PS4 and Xbox One?
People all talking about scale.... Ubisoft again fooling people with scale of world instead of density of good content hahahahahahahahahahaha.... Just by using a game that has a place in people's hearts.
Is Ubisoft the publisher? Oh yes this game is destined to get downgraded and degraded really hard if the developer gets controlled by the business suits, deadlines and monetized market established by Ubisoft. . Look at the fiasco that happened with Watch Dogs advertisement. Ubisoft likes to sell air donuts and they are really good selling those to keep players wishing for good things that will never arrive. This is a demo. It's to much for the PS4 and XONEX. This has a better chance to hit realistic goal on the PS5 and next Microsoft machine. Star Citizen 42 uses the same idea of free open world scale but there's no sign to see a coherent game out of their promised project. Do not imagine a game with this demo. There is too much freedom and it is too good to be true. Flying anywhere, doing atmosphere flight and travel is too much for current consoles in this generation. This game is likely to happen in 4 years since there's no game content already developed. It's likely to see this in the next generation. What to expect? Simple, do not wait for that scale on this generation, maybe the next. Do not expect a great game at all, just a fair average adventure. Horizon Zero Happened as an abortion of nature, don't expect a great game when Ubisoft is their boss.
Release it as is, and I will be more than happy to pay to play it. :)
This is NMS all over again. Way too ambitious for it's own good.
"great" you say... You've turned it into an open world game with space travel... Not really what I was hoping for.
I don't understand how most Beyond Good and Evil fans aren't pissed about this. This isn't Beyond Good and Evil, it has nothing in common with it.
This game looks absolutely awesome. Really interested in playing this. Ships inside of ships....monkey jetpacks...c'mon ..this is awesome.
Looks GREAT but the idea of world ending meteor collisions on the opposite side of the planet is really off taking. And a ship traveling that fast in a planet's atmosphere is going to cause a lot of damage to buildings at that close distance. Not to mention the explosion it would create if it crashed. Thinking they tried to make it sound all scientific talking on the atmosphere and friction and all but they have really exaggerated any believability they try to push.
Can other Beyond Good and Evil fans please explain why they are excited about this game ? It's nothing like Beyond Good and Evil, is this really the game you were looking for ?
