Michel Ancel is creator of Beyond Good & Evil.
He showed a 14-minute video with the gameplay of the second part. The developer played for the Knox (this is not the only hero for whom we can play), then climbed into the high-speed shuttle and flew back and forth over the city, and after that completely left the planet and climbed into space at Space ship.
In fact, Beyond Good & Evil 2 is a prequel.
The action of the new game takes place long before the events of the original. And, according to the authors, together with the main characters, we have to fight for freedom in this insane world, flying from one planet to another in Sistema-3. The date of release of Beyond Good & Evil 2 developers have not yet been called.
