It doesn't really matter what the game looks like. BG&E is all about story for me.
inveni0  +   846d ago
Then this had better have an awesome story, because those graphics suck. I almost think some dude just built this in his pirated copy of 3DS Max so that he could get some people talking about his "art".

Unless this is a N3DS screenshot, color me unimpressed.
jony_dols  +   846d ago
BG&E has been in development for years, this could just be a screenshot of an early build from a few years ago.

I'm sure Ubisoft Montreal will be collaborating with some of Ubi's other teams (i.e. AC, Splinter Cell & GRAW's studios) to make it graphically shine.

As already mentioned by Clayman, BG&E is all about the story, but nice graphics never hurt & Ubisoft know that if they want to boost sales.

Looks very dated. And bad. Probably fake.
RememberThe357  +   846d ago
We have no idea how far long development is and judging from earlier statements("We are in an active creation stage and at this moment" - Michel Ancel) it's not very far along. Even if this is new it's leaked and in no way a hint at what graphical standard they're trying to set with this game. I'm sure that if you looked at early renders of Uncharted they'd look like crap too. To be honest it just looks unpolished which is to be expected from a game in the middle of development. A lot of developers use the last month to polish the graphics (i.e. DICE games look horrendous until they're out of beta).

Got Dammit!!! Put some Anti-Aliasing on that screen shot!

That red arrow next to the Fresh Fish sign on the right looks like a dam set of steps. lol

yeh it looks like the typical Ubisoft artwork so I'll hold out for some 1080p game play video before passing JUDGEMENT! BG&E2 was supposed to be out a year and a half ago so they better make it fantastic.

Now i have something to look forward to at E3!
Gaming101  +   846d ago
lol wow, who gets this angry over anti-aliasing, nerd spasm much?
It's obviously an early work in progress that doesn't have all the touch ups that it would have on release, no game with a rocky development cycle like this one (due to lack of funding from a publisher who doesn't believe in the series due to almost non-existent sales of the first game) is going to have flashy screen shots from the get go
joab777  +   846d ago
Its a possible screenshot for a game we dont even know will be releasing. It amazes me that the first reaction is that the graphics suck on a single arbitrary pic that we know nothing about. Maybe the idea that the game may be coming out should be slightly more important. And it is a story driven game. I am guilty of it too, but we put such a premium on graphics that we get gorgeous games that are very cookie cutter. Or we trash amazing games because they dont look like battlefield 3 on high pc settings. Dont get me wrong, there is bar for contemporary looks, but i hate to think that companies like crytek first and foremost must make the best looking game, while story is average at best.
snipes101  +   846d ago
I really hope, provided that the game comes out, that they stick with a similar art style to the first game rather than going with a hyper realistic look. The over-saturated colors that the first game had were part of what made me love it.
jag_stilvecchio  +   846d ago
"BG&E is all about story..."

Really? I mean sure there is a story in BG&E but it's nothing impressive or unprecedented. This is one of those games that has a following that I simply don't understand. No one took notice of the game when it launched then a few gaming rags picked up on it as an "undiscovered gem" and now it's fashionable to cite this "amazing game and storyline" (not your words but similar to others I've seen posted about BG&E). Honestly, having played the game on my original Xbox I never saw what was so great.
Spenok  +   845d ago
Well... the way you put that is a bit miss worded. Maybe you meant to say the graphics don't matter? Because if that was the case I agree. However when it comes to the way the game "looks" it has a VERY significant important factor.

From the art style to the color pallet to the atmosphere and all the way down to the way everything comes together. If a game has a GREAT story, like BG&E did, but the game looked like absolute crap (and that of course, is open to interpretation), most people wouldn't give it the light of day.

everyone is always writing the same sort of titles for everything. Looking stunning has lost all meaning.
Merrill  +   846d ago
I agree completely.

Also everything is 'Leaked'
LightofDarkness  +   846d ago
Yep, and very little of it actually is. If something is leaked that means that it has been unintentionally disseminated or released, i.e. the company does not officially want the information or media to be available.

Typical media hyperbole tactics, really. If you say "BG&E 2 Screenshot Released" you'll get a few clicks. But saying "BG&E 2 Screenshot LEAKED" will probably net you quite a few more, because it appeals to the inner gnostic in people. People see LEAK and think "OMG SECRETS, MUST PURSUE HIDDEN KNOWLEDGE", when in reality it's probably nothing of the sort, and the image has been released to build hype.

Don't forget to add stunning to the title for a "leaked stunning" combo. Its funny how "looks stunning" isn't actually in the title on the website, just on N4G.

how can you tell what it looks like with that small shot?
Conzul  +   846d ago
click on the "small shot", dummy.
SilentNegotiator  +   846d ago
Right click and view image, too. It's a 720p shot.

@ FACTUAL evidence, Conzul
When this story was posted you couldnt view the SCREENSHOT that LARGE(look @ Gamer3000 image thats EXACTLY how large the image was when you clicked on it!). no need for unnecessary name calling and attacks.

BISHOP-BRASIL  +   846d ago
He's not blowing it up, that's the original size... That said, the first time I tried clicking the image, it opened exactly the size Gamer3000 provided.

Probably something wrong with either the site or my end, anyway, when I reloaded the link, it opened in the actual 720p size.

On topic, it may not be impressive, but also not bad in my book.

Original BG&E's art style suited the game's story and gameplay well. Trying to make the game look more realistic may not work in its favor. They should stick to cell shaded or cartoon art style.
M1chl  +   846d ago
THIS
FredEffinChopin  +   846d ago
I think the feel can be captured while using realistic textures, it depends on how the world is constructed really. This screen shot might look a little gritty for BG&E, but I'm sure once that town is filled with npcs and buzzing with activity, it will totally have the BG&E feel.

I'm hoping/assuming, at least.
smooch_357  +   846d ago
Hey does anybody remember that leaked footage of some unannounced game that ppl were speculating to be BGE2, a few years ago...the graphics in it were amazing. The footage had some girl running around through a city, and everyone thought that it was Jade...Did we ever find out what that game was?
Freak of Nature  +   846d ago
Yes that was BG&E2. Target renders done back in 2009. Link to that video below.

http://www.youtube.com/watc...

The game is one of my most anticipated.
smooch_357  +   846d ago
Yes, Yes...That was the one...so target renders means that this is how they were hoping to get the game to look and play?
xAlmostPro  +   846d ago
Looks nice! Although a few subtle animations during tat reminded me of uncharted haha

Howver this screen would match that enviroment, for sure
J86blum  +   844d ago

Redempteur  +   846d ago
That's your screenshot ?

can i get a HD version or something ?
Redempteur  +   846d ago
thanks ..i dunno why i got disagrees , the screen shot was tiny when i clicked on the website link ...

Also it doesn't look that stunning , it lack "people" ?it lack a way for us to see the main heroine character model ..

I mean i'm looking forward for this game but this "news" is blow out of proportions
MidnytRain  +   846d ago
You got disagrees because if you had clicked on the picture it would have taken you to the link I posted.
yesmynameissumo  +   846d ago
Doesn't look stunning...it look standard.
DigitalRaptor  +   846d ago
Well be glad it's being made. This sequel should've been seen long ago.

The digital round is on me, gamers!

This "leaked" stuff is usually BS and I hope it is because that is nowhere close to stunning!
shossofe  +   846d ago
At least the sign textures are visible? Other textures, though. meh.
FarCryLover182  +   846d ago
Is this a screenshot from the version being developed for current consoles? If this game is truly going to be next-gen like Ubisoft says, shouldn't it look a lot better? Game will be fun regardless of the graphics though.
WeskerChildReborned  +   846d ago
Developers barely got the Next Gen Xbox kits so we could expect some improvements through time. Anyway it will probably come out in a year or two so they have alot of time to improve the graphics but like people have been saying, It's not all about graphics but a good looking game + awesome story = total package.
Red_Eye  +   846d ago
Haha that isn't 'stunning'.
-Gespenst-  +   846d ago
I think it looks really awesome. Such a cool setting.
one2thr  +   846d ago

DeeZee  +   846d ago
Can't wait for the game, but "stunning" this is not. Jeez, stop with the sensationalist titles please :)
R834  +   846d ago
I agree it's not stunning, but it's not as bad as some of you are making out.

I think it's look pretty decent for a game that isn't coming out for a good while yet. :)
Freak of Nature  +   846d ago
Yes it looks like quite a ways off when you consider the fact that the lead man Ancel is busy with Rayman legends. Plus I think they will want the user base of next gen consoles to grow before they put this game out.

Also former members of the BG&E2 team have been put on Killer Freaks. So my "quess" is that after Legends and Killer freaks they will probably go full tilt with this.

Not very stunning, but this could be alpha or beta. We don't know. In any case, the area looks pretty nice though. Beyond Good and Evil's areas were very small and tight. Obviously not a lot of detail, but for a 2004 game it was good. This looks pretty neat though. I hope we hear more from the game. I really liked the first one.

kesvalk  +   846d ago

TheEatingOrange  +   846d ago
Proof for all the fags that this generation of consoles has died. Stop wanting it to keep on going you guys are seriously retarded
DigitalAnalog  +   846d ago
Obviously these are "in-production" shots:
With EPIC has it's UE3, EA with Frostbite 2.0 and CryTek with CryEngine 3 - Ubisoft may have it's own independent engine in the form of Anvil Next (powering up ACIII), and it would only make sense to use that for a game like this as well.

I'm guessing this may make a Wii-U launch title (possibly)
stragomccloud  +   845d ago
I don't know if it will make the launch... But I'd be really surprised if it didn't come out for Wii U. Nintendo has always had a pretty good relationship with Ubisoft, though the hardware wasn't always strong enough to run all of their games.
Ubisoft also said that they wanted to wait until the next gen for this game, so maybe it'll be a Wii U exclusive, or at the very least, the lead console.

Ubisoft.... Hurry up and take my money!
Incipio  +   846d ago
Meh. I've been seeing graphics like this since 2005.
PersonMan  +   846d ago
Is this a first person shooter?
christheredhead  +   846d ago
Compared to everyone else, I'm not sure if I'm even looking at the same screen cause the graphics look great. I see no issue with them.
PerpetualMathx10  +   846d ago
i just read ubisoft said its in development for next generation so idk what this screenshot is even about because it looks shitty for this gen let alone a game for the next systems. so im skeptical if this is even a real screenshot.
SnipeySnake  +   846d ago
Looks nice. I wouldn't say 'stunning' though cause I'm not a graphics whore and prefer art over graphics.

The previous game looks fun though so I might get this.
