Ubisoft: Beyond Good and Evil 2 to be bigger, better than original

Ubisoft’s Michel Ancel has told All Gamers that Beyond Good and Evil 2 will be bigger, more immersive and include more investigations.

Loads of returning characters are expected, and it’ll retain the spirit of the first game, the developer said.

Ancel also mentioned that due to the constraints of PS2’s Emotion Engine last time out, the firm did not make the game the way it was envisioned. That’s all changed for the sequel, he said.

The game’s currently in pre-production, so it’s going to be a while before a concrete release date is announced along with platforms.

Emotion Engine

  • Sony patents Cell-based Emotion Engine emulation

    Sony’s patented an Emotion Engine emulation system for PS3’s Cell processor. Meaning? That PS3 could play PS2 games without any hardware changes, in theory. Get details and diagrams from SiliconEra. What? PS3 price cut, Firmware 3.0, PS3Slim and PS2 emulation all before the end of the year? What’s that? Thanks Robo_1 and Blerk.
