Rayman: Origins Coming to PC in March

I wouldn’t blame you if you happened to miss Rayman: Origins at the tail end of 2011. After all, it didn’t have a gigantic advertising campaign, it’s a reboot to a long-dormant franchise, and it’s a console exclusive. However, the game itself wowed critics with solid old-school platforming, leading it to score a stellar 87 on Metacritic.

Well get ready PC gamers, because we’re getting our own version. You can pre-order the game over at UbiShop right now, which nets you a free copy of Rayman 2: The Great Escape. In a particularly generous twist, Ubisoft has decided to release this game free of any intrusive DRM schemes–that means no always-online requirement, hardware activations, or other such nonsense.

Rayman: Origins will be available March 29 for $29.99. If you’re a fan of platformers and have already had your fill of Dustforce, you won’t want to miss this old-school staple of the genre.

    Rayman, YES!
    I wanted this game so badly, so I can not wait until it comes out so I can play it for like 24 hours straight getting all the collectables and such.

  2. Mashfield says:

    Any news on whether it will be on steam?

  3. CummySockz says:

    Rayman 2 on Dreamcast is one of my favorite platformers. I’m really looking forward to a 2D iteration of this series.

  4. Tumppi says:

    Ahh, i remember playing the old rayman games in my friends basement. Nostalgic. I’m buying this for the console if its at reasonable price.
