We got a chance to play a small section from early on in the freshly revealed Beyond Good & Evil HD
yesterday evening at Ubisoft Digital Day 2010. Jade and Pey'j definitely looked higher-poly, while the textures were still clearly in the process of being swapped out. The framerate was a little inconsistent at this stage, but just by running at 1080p the game looked remarkable, even seven years after its 2003 debut.
Ubisoft couldn't confirm if this remastering should be taken as a sign that Beyond Good & Evil 2
had become a higher priority project at the company. You can, however, bet it will be keeping a close eye on sales of Beyond Good & Evil HD
as a gauge of just how quickly it needs to get the sequel out the door.
