Designed and directed by Rayman’s original creator Michel Ancel and published by Ubisoft for PC and consoles, Rayman Origins brings back the spirited 2D platforming of Rayman’s celebrated first adventure.
When a marauding army of the Livid Dead threatens his magical homeland, it’s up to Rayman to leap into action and save the day. With a riotous mixture of unique moves, outrageous enemies and boldly psychedelic environments, this is Rayman at his hilarious and heroic best.
Players will jump, swim, sprint and hover though over 60 fantastical levels, from a desert of immense didgeridoo formations and bouncy bongo drums to the fiery stomach of a dragon chef. They’ll punch out enemies with Rayman’s telescopic fists, confound bosses with gravity-defying wall-running and soar through perilous platforming challenges with “Hairlycopter”-powered gliding.
Players can also dive into the adventure with their friends. Up to three other players can join the adventure at any time, taking control of Rayman’s buddies with drop-in/drop-out local co-op on a shared screen.
“Rayman Origins is a beautifully balanced game, both welcoming and challenging.” said said David Stephen, Managing Director of Feral Interactive. “Players will need to explore every inch of the world and push their platforming skills to the limit to uncover the game’s biggest secrets.”
Rayman Origins for the Mac will retail in North America for US $19.99, £12.99 (inc. VAT) in the UK and €14.99 (inc. VAT) throughout Europe. When released, it will be available online for direct download from a variety of digital partner sites
