Beyond Good and Evil will be free on PC next week

Ubisoft has announced that Beyond Good and Evil will be available for free on PC next week.

Coming as part of the Ubisoft Club Promotion, Beyond Good and Evil can be downloaded by anyone with an active uPlay account.

Beyond Good and Evil launched way back in 2003 for PS2, Xbox and Nintendo Gamecube to critical acclaim. Unfortunately, it was a commercial failure for Ubisoft, leading to a long-awaited sequel to be revealed but never released.

However, there is still hope, as developer Michel Ancel recently confirmed that the sequel has entered pre-production.

This announcement was preceded by a series of concept art images uploaded to Ancel’s instagram account. They appear to show a selection of new and familiar characters from the original adventure.

Destructoid reported earlier this year that Beyond Good and Evil 2 is in development as a Nintendo NX exclusive, so we could see a reveal later this year.
