Beyond Good and Evil 2 had a huge showing today at Ubisoft's E3 press conference, and it's looking extremely promising so far. She looks younger than in the first game of the series, which makes sense, since it's a prequel, as well as more legendary characters from the original game. They finish by showcasing new pre-alpha footage of the game, focusing on the city of Ganesha, from last years trailer.

It'll start with radio songs and smaller art pieces in the background, but HitRecord says the scope of what they create for the game could expand from there. This program has been put in place in conjunction with Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Hit Record program which encourages creativity in artists at a collaborative level worldwide. But now that unlikely pipe dream will come to pass and Beyond Good and Evil 2 is on the road to release.

Ubisoft's E3 2018 press conference is now underway, and the company wasted little time in getting to one of its most anticipated games: Beyond Good and Evil 2. In addition, Ubisoft is opening the Space Monkey Program to allow the community a chance to have their artwork featured in the game itself. Players will actually be able to contribute assets like art and music to be included in Beyond Good and Evil 2 through a new Ubisoft partnership with HitRecord. Uma is the embodiment of the Beyond Good and Evil 2 world, a union of religion and technology. Gordon-Levitt did confirm, however, that users will be paid for their contributions. Its release date has yet to be announced, and there's no word about which platforms it'll support. The short clip offers clues about the title's moment-to-moment action and, most importantly, a sneak peek at the game's villain.

The trailer introduces a couple new characters including Uma, the crew's "holistic chief medic", and Hallum, who seems to be a Han Solo-esque character.
