Beyond Good & Evil 2 might not have a release date yet but that doesn’t mean that it’s not something to look forward to. During a recent presentation, graphic artists from Ubisoft Montpellier showed the creation process for the Beyond Good & Evil 2 characters, giving us a look at what to expect.
Attending ZBrush Summit, three Beyond Good & Evil 2 graphic artists gave us an inside look at how characters are created and what they’ll look like in the final product. Jade, Pey’j and more are shown in an hour-long video, full of model creation, concept art and new images we haven’t seen yet.
The presentation is an excellent tool for aspiring designers and graphic artists to take a peek at. With such experience on the subject, the Ubisoft Montpellier artists are perfect examples of how Beyond Good & Evil 2 characters should be. It would be an understatement to say that what we see is beautiful. It does include some valuable insight for us too, giving us a look of what the game will be like. If you don’t have the time to watch the video, here’s a gallery with some amazing art from the game:
Other than great art taken straight from Beyond Good & Evil 2, the summit didn’t hold any major news about the game, since the summit was about ZBrush. ZBrush is a digital sculpting tool that combines 3D/2.5D modeling, texturing and painting. It uses a proprietary “pixol” technology which stores lighting, color, material, orientation, and depth information for the points making up all objects on the screen.
With a universe so lively and vibrant and characters as unforgettable as Beyond Good and Evil, there’s not much that can go wrong. If Ubisoft Montpellier doesn’t go looking into details without making sure that the game runs perfectly, we might be looking at a future game of the year right there.
The first Beyond Good & Evil was released back in the golden days of gaming in 2003. It was an action-adventure video game developed and published by Ubisoft for the PlayStation 2, PC, Xbox, and GameCube platforms.
Although Beyond Good and Evil was critically praised and gained a cult following due to its story and gameplay, the game was considered to be a commercial failure since it didn’t manage to do well in the market.
Beyond Good and Evil 2 has no set release date yet. In addition, we don’t know whether or not it will be a console-exclusive title or available on all platforms. Whatever it might be though, we know that it doesn’t seem to amaze is with how detailed it looks. We’d love to see it released next year, competing against Cyberpunk 2077 as the best futuristic themed title.
