Beyond Good and Evil 2
Developed and published by Ubisoft, there is no date set for the release of this action-adventure game. This game will be the sequel to the successful title that found its way to market in 2003. For fans of Beyond Good & Evil looking forward to a sequel, they may be disappointed to learn that instead of completing the story, part two of this game will actually be a prequel.
In a unique twist, it was announced that some of the fans of this game will be able to contribute to the content in the sequel. Voice over recordings, artwork, scripts, and other submissions from fans of the game will be included as part of the game. Those selected to contribute will be paid for their work. The player is a pirate in the game, and so the gameplay goes between the actual movement of the character and the navigation of the ships.
Beyond Good & Evil 2 offers a sandbox online experience. Players will be able to create a custom character that starts on the lowest rung of the social-economic ladder and work their way up to being captain of a ship. You will be able to interact with friends or explore the stars on your own. The development of this game has lasted for more than a decade, and its release has fans of action-adventure games excited.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild Sequel
This game is developed and published by Nintendo. At E3 2019 Nintendo Direct, Nintendo surprised everyone by announcing the release of the sequel to their wildly popular game. There is not a lot of information available about this game yet with the exception of the trailer that Nintendo released at E3. In the trailer, you see Zelda and Link exploring underground chambers. They are surrounded by mysterious ruins and sporting new hairdos that have become the talk of the internet.
The trailer is just 82 seconds long, and it has no dialogue. But from looking at the trailer you are able to gather a bit of information. As one would expect, Link and Zelda are traversing the dark dungeon between Hyrule. We cut to some glowing tendrils and from there we see the couple riding a large elephant-like animal. Something shocks the couple, and this leads to the resurrection of a creepy-looking warrior that was long dead. From there we see a scene of Hyrule Field and the castle in the distance. There’s an earthquake, and the castle is covered in dust and the scene fades to black.
While it is rumored that the game will be released in 2020. Some feel that because of where the game is in the stage of development, it is more likely that the game will be released in 2021. Here’s keeping our fingers crossed.
