Beyond Good & Evil is being developed by Michel Ancel - creator of the critically acclaimed and highly successful Rayman series - and his teams. The game features Jade, an intrepid and attractive journalist who uncovers a web of conspiracy. Beyond Good & Evil will transport the player into a deep story of truth and deception set into a fantastical world, a world with literally no bounds.
