Summary: A listing on the Electronic Software Ratings Board suggests that Beyond Good & Evil 20th Anniversary Edition will be coming to PC, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox Series X|S. The action-adventure game follows a reporter and their pig-like companion as they investigate a conspiracy on the planet of Hillys. Players will engage in fast-paced combat and can utilize a range of melee weapons to fight enemies. Although an official announcement has yet to be made by Ubisoft, considering the original release of the game in 2003, news of the anniversary edition seems imminent.

Beyond Good & Evil 20th Anniversary Edition is a third-person action-adventure game where players assume the role of a reporter on a quest for truth. Accompanied by a unique pig-like companion, players will explore captivating fantasy locations, capture photographic evidence, solve puzzles, and engage in combat with robot and alien enemies.

The game provides players with fast-paced combat, offering a variety of melee weapons such as staffs and torches to dispatch foes. With its intriguing storyline and a mix of exploration, puzzles, and combat, Beyond Good & Evil received positive reviews upon its original release.

Originally launched in 2003 for PC, PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube, and the original Xbox, the game gained a dedicated following. In 2011, it was ported to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, further expanding its reach.

While Ubisoft has been working on a sequel, Beyond Good & Evil 2, progress on the game has been slow. There have been few updates on its development, and the project faced setbacks with the departure of the original creative director and the unfortunate passing of his replacement.

Fans of the original game and newcomers alike can look forward to the upcoming launch of Beyond Good & Evil 20th Anniversary Edition on multiple platforms. Stay tuned for an official announcement from Ubisoft regarding the release date and additional details.
