Ubisoft has announced that Beyond Good & Evil 2 will require a constant internet connection in order to be played. However, the game will offer both co-op and solo modes, meaning that players can experience this title as a single-player game.
As Ubisoft stated:
“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.”
Beyond Good and Evil 2 is the spiritual successor to the cult classic, and a prequel that will transport players into a profoundly multicultural world. In it, players will fight alongside other characters in a new solar system, as they struggle for freedom and the right to determine their own fate among the stars. Players will be able to game either by themselves or with friends in a vast and seamless online playground.
Ubisoft plans to release a playable beta at the end of 2019 so it will take a while until gamers can get their hands on it. Earlier this month, the French company showcased 26 minutes of gameplay footage from its pre-alpha build and we’ve embedded that video below in case you missed it.
