BG&E sequel to be "more accessible"

Ubi wants to appeal to casual gamers.

Ubisoft boss Yves Guillemot has said Beyond Good & Evil 2 will be "more accessible" so more casual gamers will want to buy it.

He was speaking at the recent UbiDays event, where the very first teaser trailer for the game was shown.

"We saw with Beyond Good & Evil that so many customers were extremely happy with the game. We had a different audience at that time. We had more core gamers than casual gamers than we have today," Yves Guillemot told

"We think the game was probably a little too difficult for the general gamers at that time. We're going to make it more accessible and make sure that it's really done for the new generation that's come into videogames."

Beyond Good & Evil was an action adventure game that appeared back in 2003, and had you taking pictures and hitting people with sticks as main character Jade - who is friends with pigs.

Creator Michel Ancel has said on more than one occasion that he would like to revisit BG&E, although how different the sequel will be is yet to be seen.

Still, excitement and that.
