Ubisoft offered up an “open invitation” to fans who want to contribute to ‘Beyond Good and Evil 2’ at their E3 press conference Monday afternoon.
Ubisoft is partnering with HitRECord, a company co-founded by Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Gordon-Levitt appeared at Ubisoft’s conference to explain the concept behind HitRECord.
“[HitRecord] is a place where people all over the world work together on short films or music or art— all kinds of projects,” Gordon-Levitt said. “This is the first time we’re making something that’s going to go into a video game.”
Developers of “Beyond Good and Evil 2” welcomed feedback and comments from the community via the Space Monkey Program. Now, the community will be able to directly contribute their own creative projects through HitRECord.
“We want our fans and people all over the world to really be a part of creating the game,” said Guillame Brunier, senior producer at Ubisoft Montpelier.
Gordon-Levitt later clarified in a tweet that the “script got trimmed” and emphasized that artists who submit their work hitRECord will be compensated for accepted contributions.
