Michel Ancel and Gabrielle Shrager came on stage to tell us about Beyond Good & Evil 2 after we witnessed what can only be described as an absolutely spectacular cinematic trailer for the hugely anticipated and long-in-development title.
Was it the best trailer of E3 so far? We'd say so.
An emotional Michel Ancel revealed that the studio at Montpellier had spent three years building the technology to create this ambitious looking title.
Shrager then gave us some insight as to the story and themes we can expect, elaborating beyond what was seen in the gorgeous trailer. The much-wanted sequel will be set in a futuristic setting "when corporations make hybrids in their labs" and send those creations out to conquer the farthest reaches of space.
We're promised a cast of "crazy and unforgettable characters" that are fighting for freedom in the stars in what looks a fascinating world. Don't take our word for it, check out the trailer below and see for yourselves.
