Beyond Good and Evil 2 Won't Work Without the Internet

Ubisoft’s Forthcoming action-adventure game Beyond Good and Evil 2 won’t Operate without an Internet connection.
It is an odd decision considering the first game would work just fine without one. Beyond Good and Evil 2’s compulsory Internet requirement was buried inside a Q&A published on the match official site following the game’s latest livestream. For most part it sounds like Ubisoft’s take on Destiny, which, depending on your point of view could be excellent or extremely unsatisfactory.
“Beyond Good and Evil 2 is an online, multiplayer game with a wealthy co-op and easy experience,” the article reads. “Therefore, the game is only going to be playable with an online connection so as to get smooth navigation, receive dynamic updates, and play with friends (that is better if you’re playing as a Space Pirate!) . The option to play co-op, however, remains yours to make, therefore playing BGE2 solo is absolutely possible if you are into that lone Space Pirate kinda thing…”

That is at odds with a past developer update concerning the game from December 7, 2017 wherein Beyond Good and Evil 2’s Director Michel Ancel initially demonstrated that Beyond Good and Evil 2 will be playable offline also its online part wouldn’t overshadow the rest of the experience, instead it would complement a story that could be told offline.

“It is extremely important to say that you can play offline if you need,” said Ancel in the time. “You are going to be able to get this feeling of living this narrative with characters and areas, that’s the basic thing. We wish to invite people to play with buddies on top of that.”

Although Ubisoft doesn’t possess a Beyond Good and Evil 2 launch date or platforms yet, we wonder what changed within a year for the team to decide against offline play. Dangerous once you believe Internet connectivity isn’t as dependable as Ubisoft believes.
