Ubisoft has shared more information about the characters seen in the E3 2018 cinematic trailer
for upcoming prequel Beyond Good and Evil 2
. They are mostly classed as "Legendary Characters", meaning players will meet and interact with them as they play through the game and recruit officers and crew for the Gada.
UMA: Chief Medical Officer, dubious oracle of Indian ancestry and a devotee of Shiva. In the trailer, she uses an advanced acupuncture technology with needles that turn red when they detect toxins.
PEY’J: Chief Cook and a familiar face to most of you Space Monkeys who know and love Pey’j from the original Beyond Good and Evil! In this prequel, he’s still the beloved-uncle type who believes in tough love and has a penchant for a certain Old-Earth alcohol, which is the not-so-secret ingredient in the dishes he cooks up for the crew.
CALLUM: Ingenious Chief Engineer with Scottish roots (and the accent to go with it!) and the only officer on the Gada good enough to play against the Ship AI (according to her).
THE GADA’S AI: This smooth-talking brainiac has a thing for Callum, with whom she’s seen playing chess on the engineering deck. She can be found at different locations throughout the ship attending to the crew’s needs.
JADE: There are many legends about this young ‘demoness’ hunting down and slaying pirates throughout System 3, so coming face-to-face with her usually doesn’t end well for a pirate crew.
ALPHA SECTION: We can’t say too much about them for now but one thing is for sure… they’re baaack!
A release date for Beyond Good and Evil 2
has not yet been confirmed.
