Update: We haven’t heard very much about Beyond Good and Evil 2 at all recently, though we imagine Ubisoft is saving the big news for E3 2018. To tide us over, though, two pieces of environmental concept art for the game have been released, both of which feature very different environments.
The images appeared on the game’s official website in a “Devs ask Space Monkeys” post, where the development team gets to interact with fans.
