New Beyond Good & Evil 2 footage showcases flying vehicles and space combat

Many months ago, Ubisoft held its annual E3 press event in Los Angeles. A lot of new games were announced and we got an in-depth look at Beyond Good and Evil 2 for Xbox One and other platforms.

The highlight of the show had to be Beyond Good and Evil 2 because we got a new trailer showcasing the grittiness of the world and the threats that inhabit space. Apparently Jade is the villain of the game even though it's a prequel. The humanoid pig Pey'j also makes an appearance. It'll be interesting to see how that plays out. Today, Ubisoft showcased new footage which features space combat, flying vehicles, and much more. It's unclear when the title will launch, but it's safe to say that it's probably a next-generation experience at this point.

Beyond Good and Evil 2 is an action-adventure role-playing title that you can experience alone or in co-op. It's not a massively multiplayer online game like many assumed. Ubisoft is asking fans to create art, music, and radio stations for the title and the publisher is working with Joseph Gordon-Levitt's HitRecord to make it happen. Content creators will be paid for their work.

You play as a space pirate captain at the end of the 24th century and explore exotic locations. Ganesha City is just one of the areas you'll discover which is a sprawling metropolis filled with opportunities and threats.
