Ubi Soft Entertainment has announced that it will unveil Project BG&E (working title), the next game from Michel Ancel, at the 2002 Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles next week. Ancel is best known for creating the colorful Rayman series of platform action games.
"What propels this game into the upper echelon of next-generation games is not only an engrossing storyline but also the promise of discovery," Ancel said. "We've designed a brand-new, exclusive game engine from ground up that has allowed us to integrate a whole universe in one game including mountains, cities, towns, planets, and more. Our goal was to provide gamers an opportunity to experience absolute immersion through a unique story and free-roaming environments."
Project BG&E is scheduled for release for the PC and the latest console systems in the first quarter of 2003. We'll post more information about the game as it becomes available.
