Developers should keep in mind we watch every message here :rolleyes:

So what is this Thread?
This threads only existence is due to many always asking about stuff that has been clarified. I expect new people to come to the program and I want to have a thread dedicated to answering all questions regarding the game. But keep in mind that you should not take everything as set in stone.

Will we always need an internet connection even if we're playing BGE2 solo? (o_gilgamesh, Twitter)
Beyond Good and Evil 2 is an online, multiplayer game with a rich co-op and seamless experience. As such, the game will only be playable with an internet connection in order to have seamless navigation, receive dynamic updates, and play with friends (which is certainly better when you're playing as a Space Pirate!). The choice to play co-op, however, remains yours to make, so playing BGE2 solo is absolutely possible if you're into that lone Space Pirate kinda thing...
Maybe you want to voice yourself regarding that here (https://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/2039110-Glad-I-m-not-the-only-one-that-hates-online-only)
Gamesetting Updated 15.11.2018

The game takes place before BGE1
Gametime is in the 24th century where India and China have become the global superpowers in the 22nd century. They working on creating human-animal hybrids for interstellar colonization. However, those hybrids are treated as slaves and are probably the lowest class in this society.
The location of the game will take place is System3. System 3 is rich in resources and worlds in the habitable zone, a place full of spacefaring commerce. Also, System4 is involved in the game to explain some history.
Fled hybrid slaves work for their own freedom which causes a growing space piracy.
Even under hybrids there are classes. Domesticated are seen as lesser.
There will be different species under hybrids, therefore, we will see multiple cultures and languages.
The story focus is about hybrids which are fighting for their freedom, to get accepted as equal.
The story should feature important characters which drive the story(Ancel mentioned, a similar way Zelda does). Characters from the first BGE1 should be somehow involved.
It remains to be seen how the game goes with "story across generations".


Keyfeatures

This space RPG game will incorporating the main pillars/elements of BGE1 such as, 3rd person perspective, friends, combat, vehicles, exploration(first-person view for photos), stealth (also other elements we see in games like Witcher3 such as dialogues, quests, collectibles, and leveling) and on top of that the Co-OP option.
You will be able to create your own character which can be human or hybrid and that comes with negative and positive effects for each species. Also, side characters should be playable too(at least if we go by the demo).
You start as lowlife guy with a space tuk-tuk. You evolve yourself over time with your crew and your ship. That is why an XP system is in place. We heard stuff along the lines of delivering pizza as an option to grow.
Minor characters are randomly generated and therefore unique to everyone.
There will be multiple solutions for a quest to solve it.
Actions may have consequences (like disturbing supply lanes for a city).
The game is an open-world title.
Ability to go from character scale out into space without loading screens, possibly within seconds, and then traveling between worlds. It's compared to No Man's Sky but emphasized that they want to focus more on few, specifically designed worlds, while still allowing some parts to be intelligently generated like in Dwarf Fortress.
Grappling gauntlet and jetpack are methods to move vertically as shown in the trailer.
Minigames, like card games.


Spaceships and Vehicles (Updated 05.06.2019)

Seems like we start with low-end space tuk-tuk^^
You will be able to fly around in your spaceship keep your small spaceship at the time you are getting a bigger one. It will be parked in the bigger one.
Bigger spaceships can be considered home or garage of the player, customizable with e.g. trophies (Who doesn't like a moving base?)
We have seen spins, loopings and even drift as possible maneuvers.
Vehicles each have velocity settings. The acceleration between these is dependent on the "character attributes" of the vehicle. Overall speeds may range up to 1 million km/h. (This has only been observed so far.)
Going into atmospheres too fast may cause you to burn up
There will be dogfights coming.
We will get racing again.
Ships can be shut down so the player has to escape the ship before it crashes.
Ships have the ability to follow another if you want that (fly in a formation).
You can enter enemy ships.
Modular ships so you can change appearance and traits.
There will be Mammago "Stations" for your ships.


Fear of empty planets?

Ancel assured us he wants the planets to be alive.
There will even be submarine exploration.
Also there should be active trading between cities(including people/slaves to some extent).
Ancel mentioned that all the cities or other places of interest/quest relevance are designed from the ground up, not procedurally generated.
Ancel actually referenced Dwarf Fortress as an inspiration (for generation of places). Ancel also said: “We have some techniques that allow us to populate the planet in a logical way,” In fact, they have full control over the generation of the worlds.
They use generation and hand-made content. It would almost be impossible for the devs to fully make all those structures themselves or very time-consuming at the targeted scale.


Photos and Spyglass (Updated 13.12.2018)

Yes we will be able to take photos again. This time however you can even share pictures you made and NPCs will react to those.
Taking a picture will create an object with metadata (location, what's pictured and so on). Pictures may be shared between players (in Co-Op) to aid progression
Unlike BGE1 the player will wield the so-called Spyglass.
The Spyglass is like a camera, but it has been said to have more functions.
Scans with the Spyglass show the base DNA of a hybrid or human. Besides that scans reveal weaknesses and or strengths. It very likely also shows faction.
Also there are Object-based scans such as Cities or important areas on the planet's surface from the outer space of the planet. The Spyglass also seems to shows the name of the location of the player.


How big is the world? (Updated 13.12.2018)
Ancel mentioned: "Exploration will span the galaxy, as the developers want players to zip across planets from city to city and fly from planet to planet." Important to know here is that the game takes place in one Solar-System, not the galaxy.
I highly suggest you watch the "First In-Engine Demo" video to get the feeling of scale Ancel always talks about. Either way, it clearly looks to be massive.

https://i.imgur.com/5JETkMc.jpg
Soma the "planet" where Ganesha City is located which is a moon of the gas giant "Dyaus"
https://i.imgur.com/2a8DFQh.jpg
As of date we only know that there are the planets (outer to inner orbit):
Kailasa
Dyaus (with the moons Soma and Chandra)
Ganga
Narak
Agni
Surya which is very likely the sun
"Lost Ark of Manu" does not follow the same orbit which very likely means it is either a special planet or more likely something different

Global scale effects

Space debris falling on the surface causes effects(Population will be on the safe side of planets).
The surface will be affected by those and therefore seem to be modifying it in real time.
Since the game runs a whole simulated Solar-System, day and night cycle are a natural cause of this.


Having a Crew

We know you will be able to have a crew with the mediumship.
Those people may join you or not based on your actions.
Also those people may leave you due to some actions you may perform in the future.
The Crew will improve your ship statistics(depending on their skills). Find a good combination.
Ancel mentioned it would be way more realistic to win crewmembers with for example a card game.
Gameplay footage on the fourth stream showed a wounded hybrid which could potentially get part of your crew.


Combat (Updated 12.12.2018)

Melee combat does have dodge with Jetpack, a drop-down attack and normal hits it seems.
Some enemies are able to block incoming attacks while other may have healing abilities.
Combat can be outside and inside ships.
The Jetpack adds a layer of complexity.
Combat can happen anywhere. As mentioned by Ancel on the clip of the second SpaceMonkeyReport
They want to keep the same DNA which probably hints to the classic BGE1 one-button combat or rather close to it.
Latest reveals have shown the use of guns with so-called augmentations "perks" which for example slow enemies or put them into full stasis. The effects seem to be temporary.

Legendary/Important Characters Update 29.09.2018

KNOX Hybrid monkey who is always looking for trouble
ZHOU YUZHU Hybrid pig, pretentious collector and ruthless crime boss
LI DAIYU Rejuvenated madam who runs Zhou’s backrooms
SHANI Badass biker and ingenious mechanic of Somalian ancestry
DAKINI The very mysterious Captain of the Gada...
PEY'J The cook of the Gada and famous for his Space-Chili
CALLUM Ship mechanic of the Gada
GADA AI You know. This is a smart speaking ship. It is like Kitt in Space I guess
UMA Chief Medic of the Gada
HSING-HSING It is a Panda with tea
KIM HYUN-JUN A Tiger who survives with participating in daily blood sports
JADE Standing against the crew of the Gada on the side of Alpha-Sections
ALPHA SECTIONS They are back! With some really beefed up armor it seems


Side information (Updated 05.06.2019)

"The Gate" we saw in the trailer was inspired by a 15-year-old drawing. Maybe there are connections to BGE1?
Teased numerous times that Dakini is related to Jade
Jades dark side
The origins of Carlson and Peeters are something they want to go into
Christophe Héral is confirmed to return for the OST
No exclusivity planned
Addressing concerns for mature dialogue: It'll be characteristic for few characters, they want to experiment with a variety of different ones. Ancel says he considered making dialogue optionally family-friendly, compared to Brütal Legend
Glass structures will be destructible, e.g. headlight in the trailer and police barricade colliding with a building
A Police system, "GTA in space"
Cities are built structured. Upper echelons are advertisement-free and dedicated to spirituality.
The mothership is represented by an NPC entity similar to Secundo in the first game
From Ancels Instagram
Translation from walikour (http://forums.ubi.com/member.php/2311656-walikour): We want to develop the world of BGE1. The origin of the DomZ, hybrids and why not Aunt Hortense(ElPrimordial (http://forums.ubi.com/member.php/2311559-ElPrimordial) mentioned it is probably Geneva in other localisations). BGE1 is in the middle of the trilogy, so we will make a game in the past then another one in the future.
In short: The trilogy still is a thing but replanned
Also, do we know how the games are linked that way: BGE2, BGE1, BGE3.
Mod support will be looked into. Michel posted on his Instagram: "Modding: We'll work on it for sure"
Work from the community over HitRecord already gets used in the game.
The mineral hybrid slaves need to collect on the dangerous side of Soma is Diwalite (the name comes from Diwali festival of light)
Diwalite is used as powersource/source for Nanobots, Propulsion Engines and Cloning!
Diwalite needs to be harvested within seconds because it is that unstable.


Technical stuff we know

The game runs on a so-called Voyager engine.
Planet modificating effects are a thing (Probably the ice wave shown in the second trailer?).
A full simulated SolarSystem, no tricks (day-night cycle on a natural basis).
Biomes
Extremly high draw distance!
Large destroyable objects(What we know limited to glass right now)


Some stuff shown in the Reports
Don't take any of the shown content as set in stone! As shown in the video it is super early behind the scenes view at the work. For that reason, I advise you not to judge the game on the report content as of yet. Also, some content may get ditched through our input


It was never planned as a Prequel.
Very early character creation was shown. Types are Human, Monkey, Cat-ish, Dog, Rhino, Shark, Pig-ish and a Reptile (crocodile) with no tails. Important to note here is the focus on the base human shape as of date.
There is no AI planned like Secundo for the player. Instead "Officers" which are the people one is able to hire are meant to take such a spot as Secundo.
Ancel said no one will be required to play BGE1 for this game.
Vehicles painting options and multiple part combinations are shown. Keep in mind it is not perfect so you may see some clipping.
"Follow" for ships, so a friend can lead you to a location.
And Ancel hinted a dark side of Jade!
They work hard for a early access to give us playable content and a way for us to contribute more actively, but as of date, there is nothing to say here. But they let us know as soon as there is something.
K-Bups ingredients are still unknown and Michel Ancel has spoken and declared this as a no-go topic :rolleyes: (He will probably refuse to answer any questions regarding this mysterious product)
Brothels will exist. "It is a mature game," said Michel Ancel

I got mentioned xD and some other players too in the Q&A so better ask stuff guys :D at #askbeyond (http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1690142-askbeyond)

Lucky you!
The BGE Developers teamed up with Hitrecord to make it possible for us to add things we create (https://hitrecord.org/productions/3502858) (and support created items through likes).
Be aware many people work on this game and this only exists for FANS who want to contribute.
As thank you from the Devs every chosen piece of work will get paid from the pool of money that has been set up for Hitrecord.
If you are not creative like me go there and pick the best of the best, so the best things enter the game ;)

Also, I want to quote Guillaume Brunier and stuff he mentioned.

The Space Monkey Program for us is like, it's like a leap of faith, right. We are showing stuff in very rough states. We are showing you the way we work. We will show you stuff that normally is kept internal and we are doing that because we trust you guys, you are willing to see that stuff and want to be a part of what we do. I am really proud of the team, at everybody at Ubisoft to do that corrective developer approach. Everything you are gonna see here is work in progress, rough.
We want to be open and thanks for watching and being part of it.

BGE FEST News
BGE FEST (https://beyondgoodandevil.ubisoft.com/en-us/bgefest) CHANGED TO 2019
https://static2.cdn.ubi.com/pxm/BGE2/Community%20Platform/BGEFEST_LOGO_november2018.png

Platforms for Release:
THESE ARE NOT FINAL! PC most likely is but we are not so sure about the consoles.

Xbox One
PS4
PC

A Switch version will not exist(at least to this very day and unlikely in the future). To our knowledge, the engine is not ported to the Switch nor is the Switch capable of running such a Solar-System on the desired draw distances. On the Switch that is simply down to a hardware limitation(If we take Xbone and PS4 as the baseline we got).

A PS5 version is an option too. Sony flat out said they are not delaying the PS5 release(Even if the PS4 pro is a thing). Therefore making it another platform for the game. Since it is one of the goals to have the game on as many platforms as possible it gets likely to even see a PS5 port. However, that is a vision of the future.

PC

Uplay
Steam probably
Origin unlikely
Very likely Windows only.
At this moment UWP version seems unlikely too(Universal Windows Platform).

Also, it is unclear how the test versions will be distributed and when this will happen.

Questions? (Updated 31.07.2019)
The answered questions of #askbge will be displayed here too in the area where they match or I make an extra list if we need one.
You may also find your answer in the first game. Lucky YOU! There is a Wiki (https://beyondgoodandevil.wikia.com/wiki/The_IRIS_Network_Wiki) for it.

Also some answers to #askbge:


Will we be getting a list of hybrid animal species? (from Limetail on Discord)
We have shared a lot of our in-progress research, particularly during Space Monkey Report #4. We're still working on the final list, but you can be sure that monkeys and pigs (displayed in our two trailers) will be in the final game. Other hybrids appearing more briefly in our trailers will also make it to the final game.

What other cultures do you plan on including in the game? (from Limetail on Discord)
Indian and Chinese cultures will have major roles in the game, but looking at the Legendary Characters shown in our trailers could help you guess what other cultures we want to explore in the final game…

Will there be underground cultures (such as street racing or niche music scenes) as well as nightlife in the cities? (Folezicle, Discord)
The answer is yes: we will explore underground cultures in the game. The largest will be the one carried by Space Pirates, but also by Hybrids, who have their own beliefs and myths.

Will there be underwater or subterranean exploration/mission areas? (ShastaSummit, Twitter)
It will definitely be possible to fly in underground galleries on the planets of System 3, especially when exploring the giant mines where Hybrid slaves work.

Will our race or human/hybrid status change our interactions with NPCs? (ketouki, Twitter)
Yes, we want the World around you to react to your visual identity. Depending on whether you play as a human or as a hybrid Space Pirate Captain, you will not be welcomed the same way in different places.

Do clones age? The Wiki needs this vital information! (Twitch)
Yes, clones do age. Uma, in our second trailer, is a prime example of a clone who aged. But keep in mind that clones may age in ways that are specific to them…

How does cloning work in this world and is the entire population made of clones? Are people still infertile during at the time BGE2 takes place? (Caracal, Discord)
Clones cannot give birth. Human beings purposely created them with this limitation. Since clones were the only ones to ever reach System 3, the whole population of this planetary system is made of clones who were created in cloning centers.

Are the DomZ going to be in the game? (Escope12, Discord)
It's a little too soon to talk about that, but we can definitely confirm that the Alpha Sections will be back in BGE2. Keep in mind that, since this is a prequel, we want to explore the origins of many elements from the first game (as many as possible, actually).

From Emile and Gab's speech before the demo, it seems like there's a lot of lore in the game, so how does this fit with the multiplayer aspect of the game? Would you say this is a very story-driven multiplayer game? (@joanes12, Twitter)
We want our game to have a very deep and detailed world. As a player, you can expect to be fully immersed in this world, and the more you'll explore it the more you'll understand how it works. Narration will be a constant, carried by this rich world and the creatures who populate it. Playing the game solo or with friends will expose you in the same way to this world and all its narrative elements.

Is there a limit to the distance between players in coop (how far can they go apart)? (Twitch)
Technically, there's absolutely no limit to the distance between different players in the game, and that was made possible thanks to our engine, Voyager.

What’s the correct pronunciation for “Diwalite”? Two versions were heard. (Kl00k606)
The correct pronunciation in English is: “dee-va-light”. To learn more about this precious resource, check out our article about Diwalite (https://beyondgoodandevil.ubisoft.com/en-us/news/ignt14539-Diwalite:-The-Ultimate-Resource-of-Power).

Can I be a hybrid slave master? (LordofZ)
The game offers you the opportunity to play a Space Pirate Captain, but it’s up to you to decide what kind of pirate you want to be. So, if you want to treat hybrids poorly, it’s a choice among many others, but this could lead to consequences…

Can you play as an evil pirate lord? (Caustic_Blade)
There’s no “right” way to play a Space Pirate in Beyond Good and Evil 2. As the name of the game implies, pirates are never easily categorized, so playing as an “evil pirate captain” is certainly an option.

Only male clones? Are there any female clones? (MettZilla)
To create clones in System 3, there is an equal number of male and female DNA strains. For example, there is a female as well as a male hybrid monkey DNA strain.

Can I just be a human? (Kittyattackship)
Yes, of course, you can play as a human! At the beginning of the game, you will be able to choose your physical appearance among different human and hybrid DNA strains.

So I guess there will be no children in System 3? (Hydre39)
Exactly, human and hybrid clones are born with adult physical characteristics, so there are no real children per se in System 3.

Is Jade a clone? (LordofZ)
There’s something special about Jade, isn’t there? But it’s too soon for us to reveal more about this character…

Do you have to be taught to be a pirate? Aren’t you supposed to choose what you want to be? (Kl00k606)
There are many different ways to become a Space Pirate (we described but one example, being rescued by a pirate, during the livestream), but in the beginning every pirate must learn the ropes and this starts with the Primera ritual.

Space Pirate Tigers? Can I play a rhino? (Midnight_Fondler and Riosebalde)
Hybrid tigers (https://beyondgoodandevil.ubisoft.com/en-us/news/ignt10766-CHARACTER-FOCUS:-KIM-HYUN-JUN-(HYBRID-TIGER)) and hybrid rhinos are part of the DNA strain choices in Beyond Good and Evil 2, so you’re free to play as a Space Pirate Hybrid Tiger or Rhino!

Will the camera still play a huge part in gameplay? I loved discovering and taking pictures of various wildlife. (Wazithepa)
Since you’re playing a Space Pirate in Beyond Good and Evil 2, your new way of getting information about the world around you is through your spyglass. To see the spyglass in action, check out our pre-alpha gameplay demo in Space Monkey Report #4 (https://beyondgoodandevil.ubisoft.com/en-us/news/ignt13837-Space-Monkey-Report-#4:-VOD-&-questions-answered)

Besides Jade and Pey’J, will we see any other characters from the first Beyond Good and Evil appear here? (GrumpyGlitch)
Like the appearance of the Alpha Sections in our E3 2018 cinematic trailer and the return of the Mammago clan in BGE2, keep your eyes open for more familiar faces from Beyond Good and Evil…

Will there be more opportunities to contribute to HITRECORD challenges? (Iris_Network)
Yes, we’re extending our community collaboration project with HITRECORD and will be providing more information about this soon.

Hornaments? (HeyTrey_Live)
We like this play-on-words a lot for the Mammago hybrid rhino concept art we showed! Like “hornaments,” we’re looking to have an array of character customization options available for players to personalize their characters (which is important in a world of clones!).

Acknowledged. He also said if they don't manage it early 2018.
Now I made a own place for nonenglish videos^^ Many people including me probably can't get any use out of those, that's why I don't display them in full size. I furthermore wonder what the limit of a threadpost is^^ So I try to keep it short now :D

However thanks for your contribution to this information base!

Great writeup, Legion. I may have spotted parts where wishful thinking has taken over for a bit, but then again, I haven't really read all of the information at hand (though of course I was able to read the entire GameStar article in its original language :p ). Also, giving reference links to each and every info bit usually makes such a list excessively unwieldy – and people just don't read it if it's unwieldy.


However, I'd love a few things to be fact-checked/added:



To my knowledge, it is virtually impossible to release a PS4 game "just for the Pro". Sony won't allow it. No idea whether it's the same for Xbox.
Playable team members ("side characters"): Haven't stumbled over this bit of info yet, where is this from?
"How big is the world?": This part seems to be conjecture based on Ancel's concededly (and hopefully) bloated announcements – or is it indeed a quote of those? In any case... this is the part where Ubisoft's marketing should be taken with a grain of salt. After all, no one even WANTS such an "incomparably big world".
One of the things that comes up again and again is e.g. the procedural generation vs. hand crafted panic. Ancel has said that all the cities or other places of interest/quest relevance are designed from the ground up, not procedurally generated. This could be added up there.


Ansonsten nur weiter so!! :)

I did know Sony has a somewhat existing quality assurance. To be real they don't do a hell lot imo^^ (Like blocking mods and games under 25FPS).
If this goes for the PS4 it will 100% go for Xbox too(Because all version still use the same base chip).

I somewhere gathered that with playable side characters and the poster walikour mentioned it too with a non-english source to it which is linked(I added it then, not before tho). I don't remember where I got that from, but it was one way or another from Ancel. Plus you gotta keep in mind he played Knox in the engine demo(Idle animations and moving everythings in).
At this point there is no real Ubisoft marketing to the game yet. They first need the game to be a thing^^ But I have to say from what I saw that engine makes it possible and it is just about getting the world to be alive. I guess even if they pulled the worst they can do they are not able to make a NMS again xD
"procedural generation vs. hand crafted panic" Didn't know that. I knew they used both tho. Man I hope we get space stations^^

I take my information usually from quotes, the videos here or if the community spotted something on instagram.
Chances are always we have false information, but I'm certain this is at this moment not the case.
Anyone is able to mention heavy mistakes so this thread kinda gets self correcting.

French

eux meme incarnerons des personnages qu'ils ont créer, si j'ai envie de jouer avec knox ou un personnage de sa famille et de le faire grandir c'est possible, et ca on l'a pour l'ensemble des personnages du jeux.

English google trad

They will even embody characters they have created, if I want to play with knox or a character of his family and to make it grow it is possible, and it has it for all the characters of the game .

if you see each character as a character created with the charachter creation tool ( hugh too much character ) it is possible to play every pirate of the game.

06-26-2017, 05:22 PM
This may friend too, should be discussed elsewhere^^. I think a lot of place will taken for safari space that you gotta explore for animals and stuff.

"And this isn't because creating a planet of actual earth size isn't feasible; it's because a planet of earth size just wouldn't be fun."
Well I havn't played the game and therefor no opinion on that^^. I doubt they would go this route unless Ancel and Team are sure about what they do. We will 100% see how this will unfold. I wonder what the space they have will be filled with.

About speeds. We only saw the small ship :D
I think they work at that right now.

By the way i don't remember where Ancel said it but you have to gain trust by your team members per exemple if knox see you save some slaves he will trust you more, we can assume the reverse is true if you don't choose to save the slaves he will hold a grudge.

Edit:
I found this awesome post in this forum who talk about the easter eggs and well there are a lot of infos i was not aware of
here is the link http://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1687170-BGE-2-Trailer-Easter-Egg-Forums/page4

some exemple:
-Ad for a death match between a Rhino and Hippo hybrid named Capo and Razer.
Gladiator matches heavy breathing
-The ad indicates game takes place in 2380, 55 years before the events of Beyond Good & Evil.
meh i expected some twist like the action happened just 1 year before BGE 1 and we could still see jade

I saw the video. I will add it to the thread.
I'm happy they distance from Jade right know. Because her abilities really need some explanation imo.
And it's good to rebuild the world and after that is done and working out to focus on Jade again. Or a own character helping Jade in some way. Since we have our own character, I doubt we will play Jade in a Sequel.

This is not a news thread. It is a pure summary of what we know is in or already answered(kind of a small FAQ about the game rather than it's probably side characters in that case).
"Next step now : The living City . Big things have already been done : So , stay tuned !"
Remains to be seen. We see it I update it.

May I quote myself. "Since the game is early in development we don't have much yet. I will update if that changes."
But I forgot to mention XP now I rechecked. However this article is more or less just everything you see in the Engine-Demo except the XP part of course.

Since everyone is able to correct me this kinda is self correcting anyway.
I just want this to be a quick overview not bloated with links. However if anyone is willing to find all those I will link them^^

Besides I prefer the official stuff like the videos he did. I expect another one.

Edit: Hey. I just could link the newsthread. Makes way more sense.

WiwarK9
06-27-2017, 06:44 PM
There is so much more than just the XP part take this part for exemple


"Players start with a customizable character. Maybe you’re a cool monkey man. Maybe you’re a swashbuckling lady. You start in a low social station, maybe as a slave. Or, Ancel suggested, maybe you deliver pizzas on a space tuk-tuk, and you see a port full of spaceships that can warp through the universe. “We want people to understand that one day, they’ll be able to have their own giant spaceship.”

it can confirm multiple starting point for maybe each type of character we could choose


"Exploration will span the galaxy, as the developers want players to zip across planets from city to city and fly from planet to planet. All of the content can’t be hand-made, so Ancel explained that the developers will, to an extent, use random generation. They will hand-make some content and let the computer do some of the other. Many of you reading are probably having No Man’s Sky flashbacks right now, but Ancel actually referenced Dwarf Fortress as an inspiration. The beloved, hardcore PC game generates new societies with their own mythology and history. “We have some techniques that allows us to populate the planet in a logical way,” Ancel said."

You know how many time i hear "blablabla procedurely generated suck blablabla" with just this paragraph we can make their mouth shut


Ancel hopes the team can have playable prototypes to put in the hands of players who sign up for the game’s community-access Space Monkey program by the end of the year, “if not then next year.” He wants to make the game alongside the community, having them try different modules and give feedback even as the Ubisoft team keeps on crafting the game.

You could quote this paragraph as a source for the release of the demo.

Maybe all this stuff is obvious to you but i see too many people still confused about where the game is leading the more sources we add the more people will start to understand the concept, and i thing they really did a poor job at presenting this game to people without explaining the point aboves, people all over the places have no man's sky flashbacks

And a lot is in the summary just in short.


Thread:
Custom Character-Character Creation!
It was already mentioned multiple times. You will be able to create your own character in this game.
How remains to be seen.
Also all side characters should be playable too.


Thread:
Also it is unclear how the test versions will be distributed.
A demo should be avaible at the end of the year and if they don't manage it then early 2018.


Gotta give you that. I update the bit about generation and travel.
Thanks for your contribution^^ Just saying if anyone finds a helpful on his post here, it was probably me, because I changed something because of that.

This is the part that interest me not the customizable character part, this everyone know it, but with this phrase it confirms multiple possible start for story for the character you are playing

My point is not to say that you forget to add things in your thread don't worry i read it but if you want people to be sure of what you saying it's better to give the link of where your read it that's why i said

You could quote this paragraph as a source for the release of the demo.

Damn m8. I got the pizza part in and the slave as starting option(You were to fast on that answer). Also I linked the whole news section, which actually should be enough evidence and I checked if that news is in it.

However I take care about the information videos here^^ Actually I run that as public playlist (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLJFP4FT22MDgCkJB5GmrKu4Qe2nkOlGo5).
Still thanks for pointing out. Could have still missed it.

My personal guess is that the start is tied to the type of character. If I update the thread I usually go through stuff multiple times again and probably add more than I actually say in a post. As you probably saw I took some sentences from Ancel that said imo everything important to that very section of the thread.

I think I have adressed the issues. Still I'm sure you will point something out xD

here

What the vidéo confirm is:
-Different characters have opinion and based on your act can decide to join you or not, it also confirm that they can leave you.
-Crew member improve the statistics of your ship, different combination possible you have to find the best one.
Actually i don't like this option i want to choose my crew based on what they are not on what they do, you know it's like choosing clothes on what they look and not on the stats they give...

-Different characters have opinion and based on your act can decide to join you or not, it also confirm that they can leave you.
-Crew member improve the statistics of your ship, different combination possible you have to find the best one.
Actually i don't like this option i want to choose my crew based on what they are not on what they do, you know it's like choosing clothes on what they look and not on the stats they give...



Great new stuff.
I don't think so about the crew. To be frank I will probably handle this company style. Get the best. And who knows, maybe those are the fancy dudes too xD
Since they are opinion based you should only have crewmembers with your opinion anyway.

Wait until the next thread update for the locked in general.

Edit:

Well, not "new" new. It's probably just the first in a long line of 20 second snippets recorded at E3 that's we're just to accept as "new" info in the months to come.

Well sure it says E3 in the video xD. I expect that we might see similar stuff in future. At this point they are teasing us with small bits of information. Kinda like AMD does with VEGA xD

I think a lot stuff in a game is down to the developers. I'm certain that even the craziest of ideas can be good in a game if done by the right people.

For the time I'm not able to update the thread I will link the reddit for now ;) (I 100% will work out a better information thread)
Will do that in about ~15hours. Gotta go very early^^

michelancel@friendlynightmares Yep , nothing is random. We have control over every rivers , mountains , cities . We prefere quality and storytelling over quantity

Ok so Michel Ancel showed in the game camp a footage of BGE2 of 2008 and there was Jade taking pictures in slowmotion, and in an indie talk show he said that the team is almost the same from bge2 (2008) and bge (2017) and a lot of the essence of the first bge2 will be kept.
We can assume there will may be slowmotion when taking pictures.

I am digging so hard right now to find every pieces of this conference...

EditS: Ancel still can't say when the game will came out but in the next 6 months he said there will show on the SMP a lot of content
-They will present the city in detail
-The online feature ( he said it work very well)
-The adventure system


"Environments will still be the same for everyone. Not random." Well otherwise Coop could be quite confusing I guess and it needs consistency.
It is true but don't forget that asteroids can fall on a planet so at the end everyone should have a different looking planet

Why is it cool to have sprites, because they are dynamic and so in real time in this planet meteorite can fall and affect the planet.
Everything i said will make you say "OMG IMPOSSIBLE IT'S SO CRAZY" (0:13-0:16) but it's simple we have an image that we modify like we were used to do 30 years ago.
He may be speaking about this image, if you consider the world as this picture and the 3D as just an extention of it, it would be possible to modify every piece of it, i don't know if i'm clear or not...
https://pbs.twimg.com/media/DEH_SfuXoAABMDr.jpg

There are people behind this that make everything possible obviously
I don't know if everyone saw this video or not, i think not, so there is a city who we can alterate, we can modify some zone.
Do you see the vulcan here ? in the other city, the vulcan is placed by people here and it was easy to do (I just hear half of what he said the sound quality in this video is ****)
And so we can do, for those who love zelda, compact game with interessting things, we are not in the mindset of making 1 million different planets
So at 1:05 he dub himself *cartoon voice*

So here i will show you something super, it does not move but it's super, tell like that it look like a sandwich
Back to the serious part

So there is a spatial simulation it's more a detail than somehting else, we make planets move, I will tell you something funny when we go at E3 and we say "there is a simulation of univers" "laugh" people are here like "WOO THAT'S cRAZY" but in reallity it's just things that rotate around each others, and how to say there is nothing complex about this and it's really ridicule, But it exist and in BGE1 we didn't do the univers we forget to do it
and if we don't do it at first and tell ourselves that's it's impossible to do and we begin by the small stuff at the end we realize that we couldn't do it anymore
End
There are others video of Ancel getting interviewed about BGE2 and they asked him why a prequel do you know that we disapoint fans
Resume of what ancel said: We love our fans and we are mean with them because we don't want to make fan-service, we try to be focus on what we want to make and knowing the mess this serie is i think BGE2 as a prequel is something normal.

But in anyway i have high hope for this game did you know that BGE1 is the only game were Yves guillemot is the producer ? he liked so much the game he came to Ubisoft montpellier and gived his ideas for the game, it was the team that told him that his idea were not possible, i find that quite funny.
and that's why ancel said "i want to thank with all my heart yves" i think he again puted his hand on the metling pot

Oh and yeah forget about the playable demo for 2017 Ancel said mutliple times that it would be for the next year.

Edit again: i still didn't see the whole conference if anyone find it link it here i would be happy to translate or give a big resume and give the interesting part of it.

OMG, mutated DomZ faces again! Virus detected. I wish they would've finished that. It actually comes quite close to BG&E1 with more matured graphics.

Still, it doesn't take away my excitement for BG&E2, which looks more colourful than this "old" BG&E2.

E: 30 minutes later, I'm a little bit emotional after seeing this older BG&E2. Seemed like they really had a story in mind. They knew what Jade, Pey'J and Double H were going to do. After BG&E1, Jade is still out there somewhere on a desert planet, fighting mutated DomZ soldiers while the trio beloved characters experience all kind of emotional stuff again.

I do kind of understand the prequel part now. They worked for maybe three years on the old BG&E2. That didn't work out, and they didn't like doing it anymore because of technical problems. If they made a sequel now that it is possible, it would mean they would have to do all the desert planet stuff again from scratch using their new engine. Redoing all they have already made before. No-one would like that. So they decided to go for a prequel. It all makes sense now.

After seeing this I really hope they remember the story they had in mind and bring it to us sometime. For now I just hope Jade's history will get a nice big focus in the new BG&E2.

Translation from an interview that happened at the Gamecamp

Interviewer: How do you feel the pressure from the fan
Michel Ancel: It's a good question, you have to know that we have a lot of respect for our fans even if we know we are mean with them because we are not doing what they call "fanservice" we are not saying "oh what would they like us to do etc " we are trying to be really upright about our creative approach, we say we have something in mind, we had something in mind who is not what we did back with BGE1, we do not want to be confined in the myth of a game we want to make the elements we wanted to make back in time wich does not mean we want to betray BGE1 or his spirit
but i think it's important for us to be upright and not just here with seduction and fanservice if not at this point we are no longer listening to what we learned over time to what we want to make on a game to what we wanted to make and where we did not succed so we try to be honest but i read a lot of comments i look to com threads on BGEGAME there are wonderfull comentaries on the role of female characters wich are really interessting themes, all those threads are interesting and are a part of an echange we are trying to create

And the biggest reason BGE2 is a prequel is because of the multiplayer backin the ps3/xbox360the mutliplayer was a thing but not included in every game so instead of modifying the story to fit the multiplayer they decided to tell the story from another point of the time.
I find that really great because Xenoblade chronicles X got a lot of the story put in the trash because of the mutliplayer they added.

So yeah BGE3 is a thing and is already created if BGE2 is selling well it will be no problem to get it.

Beyond Good & Evil 1: tell the middle of the story
Beyond Good & Evil 2.1: tell the end of the story
Beyond Good & Evil 2.2: tell the begining of the story

edit: Coucou Michel :)

I don't think you're right on that one. BG&E 2.1 isn't even remotely close to finished, right? They cancelled it because of technical problems. I don't think we'll ever see how the story of Jade and Pey'j ends. Hope I'm wrong though.

They should give BG&E1 away for free to everyone who buys BG&E2.2. That way everyone gets to experience the tale of Jade as well.

Guys. First we focus on the BGE2 we have now.

But I gotta say they seem to have worked out quite a junk of the 2008 game.
Recreating on having a base for it isn't as hard as making a totally new one.

That said in my opinion we could very well end up with a new BGE series and the first game gets finished in detail with a spinoff. Since we have characters creation now I actually doubt we will ever play Jade again. But we might get a clearer view on that if we get know if the gamedevelopment still has the trilogy in mind. I asked at #askbeyond.


One thing for sure. We really do not know and hella lot will depend on the success of the game.

I actually tried to edit it waaay before. It doesn't work and only shows directly in here. Furthermore I have nothing heared back from any Mod(regarding other stuff) therefore I have nobody to contact regarding that right now. If they would be online the other thread would be updated like I requested(The locked one in General Discussion). I expect everyone to check by and since I say at the end anyone should post if they get news I think most people actually read it.

On top of that you roam around to get news and I check at least bgegame.com 1time at a day and check by here also(as you might noticed now :D). Sometimes I check if the news archieve has been updated and the reddit from Johanson69. I have more time now since I worked my *** off last month :D


It is related to the information in the news rather than the actual news sites. The real news site is the News&Announcements (http://forums.ubi.com/forumdisplay.php/1649-News-amp-Announcements). Because I really cut it down to essential bits here. At the moment the hype seems to have cooled off a lot(not for me^^ and I feel responsible for that thread), which seems to be the reason Mods are not online lately(Almost 2 weeks by now).
For me it was not pointing out a chance of seeing all 3 games. It was that the trilogy is still a thing and continues here. Kinda justifies the BGE"2" naming for some people I guess.

But true I want to change the name^^ Because in fact I put some news in here too.

An interview of Michel Ancel, he talks about BGE2 and Wild.
The video is in French.
Here is the most important things M.A said in the video (about BGE2)

There is a lot of misterious information in BGE1 that was the initial project we canot do at the time; the origin of Jade, the origin of Domz, the Hybrids where are them from? what is the system 4 is there a system 3?... A lot of questions that we decided to anser without damaging what will be the sequel.

We dont anounce a date of release because the project can be delayed of 1 year

I almost want to say: in the upcoming six month you will see a lot of things, we will show some online because we have online that works well, we will show the town, the system of adventures. So instead of wait 2 years withwout news we want that people live the devlopement with us. [...] This year there will be some new videos of gameplay.

Its very hard to make a prediction of release date, this is a type of game that we never maked even in ubisoft we never make this kind of engine, this kind of game and is very hard to know how much time it will took until we got a vertical slice of all the problems of the game.

We have a lot of respect for the fans even if we know that we are hurting them a little bit because we are not doing absolute fan service, we try to be preservate our integrity.
We have something in our mind that is not exactly what we have done in BGE1, we dont want to be trapped in the myth of a game, we want to be in the elements that we wanted to do at the time. It dont mean that we betray BGE1 and his spirit. But i reade a lot of comments, i look threads of comm on bgegame, there is some great comments about wooman character... there is a lot of intersting subjects.

Before a release date the most important is the content of this year and we want to show playable content but i think it would not be this year, it would be only for the fans, some people don't want to be spoiled, we are not gona spoil anything. We want the "Early Acces" of the game the next year, not the final version of course but an experiment of what is BGE2, what is the space, the high speeds, the humans, the investigations etc... we want this for the next year.

Well in technical type of performance Ubisoft does very great in openworld titles (Very good scaling up to 6-8 CPU threads). After all the game uses a tailored engine.
Ubisoft with a game as service has done OK (Rainbow Six Siege) and they showed it is able to work out if that is a goal here? Who knows?

That is not a Beta nor is it even Alpha. That is a real game in development one might encounter on a early access.
This does not compare with the already finished game Betas which have been a thing with CoD etc.
The point is they want to know what the audience wants which is probably the whole reason for this. I bet they want to heavily avoid a BGE1 desaster (Very bad sales).

A game can always fail. Yet the devs are so super dedicated to it. I will wait this out. There have been things in the past which looked like massive fails and went full hypetrain.

How many console titles are open world space faring titles? A tragic few. And the ones we did get were often critical failures. Learning from better titles makes better games. A lot of games are better because titles before it got that one thing right that no game before it got right. For example, Horizon Zero Dawn is awesome, in part because of the The Witcher 3. Just because a title borrows and learns from a previous title some element of awesomeness doesn't necessarily make it a ripoff.

Ubisoft better notice the titles in this game landscape that have succeeded and adopt what works and build upon that in order to make a good game. I expect to see TW3 depth-level side quests (which they learned in part as seen in ACO). I want tough satisfying combat like a Nioh, NieR, or a Souls. Really good dogfighting like Eve titles. Meaningful planetary exploration that learns from failed titles like NMS.
And a polished finished title that is NOT plagued by bug after bug after bug on the day of release just because some investor is forcing a release date.

Learn, adopt, adapt. We're watching and they, the devs, should also be paying attention.

In fact this is the way the game industry works.

I would love to play the first game once Xbox figures out it's sh*te. From what I've seen of it though, I agree.

This means Vivendi will not take over Ubisoft. I find this to be important due to the possible impact it could have had on this game.

WOW! Actually the best news since BGE2 announcement! I bet all in Ubi can breath calm now.

Let me rephrase your last sentence:
"Safe and sound with all its shares, Ubisoft is no more slave of the currents"

I do not know if this copy works with DxWnd and I doubt it due to the Uplay Client.
And actually, very recently several titles including older Rayman games have been around 2€ on Uplay.
There are many key sellers selling it for under 2€ over the whole year.

Also, it eliminates repeating questions for the most part.

Well, BGE2 presentation at E3 is done, and came with this second cinematic trailer.
Personaly, i'm kinda confused jade and pey'j are here, and that Dakini was introduced briefly and is now said to be missing.
But i'm sure the team know what they're doing !

EDIT
and another thing, on this page https://beyondgoodandevil.ubisoft.com/en-us/news/ignt10789-Space-Monkey-Goodies-for-E3!
there's a mention on knox being the Gada's CHIEF SPY . I don't think that was mentioned before, maybe it's some of the change that happened after Dakini went wissing and Shani became captain.

As a character and creature artist I was really excited to the idea of collaborating with the team of BGE2! :cool:

I've indeed already started to working at the first concept phase, however I'm afraid to have a complicated question: if this chapter is a prequel, and his story is collocated 50 years before BGE1, how can be Jade in the story of BGE2? D: :rolleyes: This is the only thing that confused me D:

My idea:
Fallout 4 did it, MassEffect Andromeda did and Futurama. Not so complicated in sci-fi.
Some movies also did that. Seems logical.

At least I doubt time travel is at play because it screws up everything.

I'm agree with you. ^-^ However just remember that in Fallout 4 there is no time travel, it's only about cryogenic technology and the time flows normally; Futurama is a humorous cartoon that bases its irony on the mistakes of time travels and paradoxes in movies and video games, and Mass Effect Andromeda was a flop because of this.

The only ones who have not made mistakes with time travels and paradoxes were the developers of Legacy of Kain saga, and that story is really damn complicated. XD
But I'm sure they know all about this :) and they will create a cool story!

Johanson69
06-14-2018, 09:16 PM
I don't think anything points towards time travel here.

The ???? of Jade's birth in the timeline may well be 2315, with the story taking place over a bunch of time. The billboard in the first trailer doesn't necessarily mean that the game (or even the trailer) takes place in the 2380s. Plus they mentioned how the game is filled with clones, this Jade may not be the Jade we know from BGE1.

There is no game demo for private people at this moment.
Everything we saw is internal at Ubisoft's side. If you signed up you are on the list of people who probably get to test the game.
We do not know how this will pan out as the development started from a more or less 0% point (except that they had a game engine).
A game takes long to develop from scratch, which means years. Expect more concrete things for us later 2019.
At least that is what I suspect at the moment. But I fully understand that there is no deadline for it.
It is ready when it is ready. We cannot change that, only hope for fast progress and if there is something we should know BGENews will let you know or a Space Monkey Report will tell. (tomorrow is one)

I also took many speculations and I changed many things over time. That is why mention if you notice anything say it and I will add it or correct false information. Since I had a request regarding sharing this it is even more important to use this notice.
Btw sorry for the slow reply. I am not the fastest but I always notice the BGE2 updates.

What an amazing collection of information, thank you!

I still wonder though, what they mean by 'playing solo'.


Do they mean you can play solo in a world where other players can attack you (always open for pvp, like Sea of Thieves for example)?
Do they mean you can play solo, safe from harm from other players, but while you still see other players running around (like in Elder Scrolls Online or The Old Republic)?
Or do they mean you can play the game solo, completely away from everyone else, on your own server, solo solo?



Same for co-op. Is it you and your friend against the game (pve only) or is it you and your friend versus the game as well as versus other players? I hope there will be an option to turn pvp off, because it really distracts me from the story in most games. And I care a lot about the BGAE story! :)

The game as far as I understand goes under the "Game as a service" thing which means you are in need to be always online. As far as Coop goes it seems it is kind of like Division where your number of players is limited and they only join into your team if you so desire. Solo play literally means just playing alone in the always online world. It is rather unclear if you are still able to see players which are not really in your group.
I personally doubt that you are able to see random people.

As you may noticed people are very unhappy about the online-only section including me. I will not be in support of this unless they PROMISE that the game will get patched to run offline once servers shut down(or release the serverside details). After all, we buy the game (we own it and not just an allowance to play it -> which has been ruled in courts) and shutting down a server is a different form of planned obsolescence, sabotaging a product after it has been sold. One could make a court case and probably win that. I like to refer to this new video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tUAX0gnZ3Nw) I found regarding that.

I suspect it to be PvE only BUT no one really knows details.

I think its much better have a new live stream than an E3 presentation, because BGE2 isn't gonna be buried among so many presentations. Of course when the game its done, needs to be present there.

Some people live for seeing Hybrid Sharks.
