Beyond Good and Evil 2 to be more immersive

Beyond Good and Evil 2 to be more immersive

According to designer Michel Ancel, Beyond Good and Evil 2 will be more immersive and complex than ever.

Beyond Good and Evil designer and Rayman creator Michel Ancel has promised fans that the sequel to BG&E will be bigger, more immersive and move complex than the first game. On top of that, he's also commented that a primary inspiration for the game was the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

"It was a mix of a lot of experiences," Ancel told All-Gamers (via Eurogamer). "It was a phantasm to create an adventure game, a universe too. It was the game I wanted to create for a long time."

"There were a lot of inspirations: the Miyazaki universe, my own inspirations, politics and the media; the theme of September 11 - the CNN show with army messages and the fear climate. And it was a mix from other universes."

The first Beyond Good and Evil game told the story of the planet Hillys and an alien invasion, from the eyes of photo-journalist Jade and her uncle Pey'j. The game ended on a cliffhanger, but it wasn't until Ubidays last year that the sequel was confirmed.

"We could have finished the game," said Ancel, "but we want BG&E2 to bring something to the videogame universe." He went on to claim that the sequel will be more complex and immersive. Unfortunately, there's still no release date or confirmed platforms for Beyond Good and Evil 2.

Bought BGE thru steam the other weekend, but never really had the time to play... Is it good? Or is it like a child's game?

You bet - the first game is one of the few games I've actually played through twice - it's just a brilliant mix of stealthy action with decent character-development and a good story too - I've never played anything else quite like it. The other day, I also spotted that Play.com has Beyond Good & Evil 2 for the PC available for pre-order, which is a good sign as I thought it was going to be a PS3/360-only game. I know a pre-order on Play doesn't necessarily mean it's definitely coming out, but I'm hoping it does get a PC release.

Please don't screw this one up, Ubisoft.

It's totally awesome, despite looking like a childs game.

Got the PS2 version but not got round to playing it yet, played the game a bit on the PC and really enjoyed what I played. Can't wait for this one :D

BGE is an awesome game.

@Joe: There has to be a better way to phrase the last sentence of the first paragraph. I believe it involves the word "climate" and "aftermath".

Playing through it right now. Halfway through I think. Brilliant game, and because of it's childish appearance I think it would be enjoyable for kids, but it's definitely fun as adult. It's the most fun to play when you let the 10 year old inside you play along.

Am definitely looking forward to this one.

I didn't even know they were making a second one.

First one was top notch.
