Beyond Good & Evil In HD Coming Next Year!
Posted by geeksyndicate on September 30, 2010
Next year you’ll get to either relive the experience or see why it’s a cult classic when Beyond Good & Evil HD is released on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. This will be the same game released in 2003, only now it will have 1080p visuals, the character models are receiving makeovers, textures are being polished, and the soundtrack is being re-mastered. Achievements/trophies and online leaderboards have also been added.
Beyond Good & Evil was created by Rayman developer Michael Ancel. It has many gameplay elements in common with The Legend of Zelda including puzzle dungeons, vehicular transport to different parts of the game world, an intuitive combat system, and even heart containers. You play as Jade, a 20 year old scraping by as a freelance photographer. Her home, the island city of Hillys, is under attack by a sinister alien race, the DomZ. Jade is recruited to help expose a massive conspiracy and try to put an end to the war.
Publisher Ubisoft has yet to announce price or a release window (other than 2011) for Beyond Good & Evil HD.
