Rayman Origins now headed to PC [Update]
Despite not selling especially well, Ubisoft's critically acclaimed 2D platformer, Rayman Origins, is making its rounds on multiple consoles. Originally released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii, the game will be landing on the 3DS and Vita on February 17 and February 14, respectively. That's a lot of Rayman Origins, and hopefully these multiplatform launches spell nothing but more sales for the game.
But the 3DS and Vita aren't the only two systems that are getting Rayman Origins. Now, PC gamers have something to get super stoked about, because Ubisoft has revealed that the incredibly charming side-scroller will make its way to the platform.
Rayman Origins will launch for the PC on March 29. The game will be priced at $29.99, which is a pretty good price and hopefully entices more gamers to shell out the cash for this title. What makes this deal even more awesome is that by pre-ordering the game, you can snag a copy of Rayman 2: The Great Escape absolutely free of charge.
If you have yet to play Rayman Origins but have been meaning to, it's hard to suggest a better deal. I mean, as much as I would just like to tell you all to go out and buy the game this very instant, I can't argue against a free game. Watch out for the PC version of Rayman Origins in March.
[Update] Ubisoft has also confirmed that the retail version of Rayman Origins for PC will be DRM-free, and the digitial version (which will be available on Steam and other digital download shops) will only use an activation key. Oh, joy!
