Ubisoft makes its 2003 action-adventure platformer, Beyond Good and Evil, free for subscribers this October. The release follows in the trails of Ubisoft’s report at E3 that a sequel for the game entered pre-production. An announcement of the sequel was first given in 2008.
Developed by Michel Ancel, creator of the Rayman series, Beyond Good and Evil was originally envisioned as the first of a trilogy. Though critically acclaimed, sales of the game were comparatively lackluster. It was released for PlayStation 2, GameCube, Xbox, and Windows. A HD re-release of the game was made available on Xbox Live and PlayStation Network in 2011.
Beyond Good and Evil features a variety of game mechanics that include navigating obstacles, puzzle-solving, combat, and stealth. The protagonist of the game is supported by companions whom she meets throughout her journey and assists the player throughout the game.
With the game’s free release for Ubisoft Club subscribers, players will be able to experience the unique qualities and story that will be expanded upon sometime in the future. Besides a teaser trailer released for Beyond Good and Evil 2, all other aspects of the game have been left to speculation. Ubisoft’s latest move will allow prospective players to make a more informed opinion in drawing expectations for Beyond Good and Evil’s successor.
