Jade Returns in New Beyond Good and Evil 2 E3 2018 Trailer

Jade is that you?

Ubisoft showed off a new cinematic trailer for Beyond Good and Evil 2 today and finally revealed the fate of Jade, the protagonist from the first Beyond Good and Evil.

When Beyond Good and Evil 2 was announced last year, Jade's status or even existence was left unclear. Today's new cinematic trailer reveals Jade's presence but leaves more questions than answers for what Ubisoft says is a prequel to the first Beyond Good and Evil. Check out the trailer below.

Did Jade start out as a baddie? What happened to turn her into the intrepid journalist we know from the first Beyond Good and Evil? It seems that we will be taking control of a new crew who encounter an early Jade.

Ubisoft also showed off some new gameplay from Beyond Good and Evil 2 which Ubisoft confirms is an action-adventure RPG playable either solo or co-op. Ubisoft also announced a partnership with Joseph Gordon-Levitt's Hit Record creative video community to get fan-submitted works of art into Beyond Good and Evil 2.
