Rayman Legends Summary
Legendary? HELL YEAH.
Ubisoft has revealed that Splinter Cell: Blacklist and Rayman Legends haven't performed as well as their internal sales targets had hoped. This news follows the delays of both Watch Dogs and The Crew.
The finger of blame is pointed squarely at the impending arrival of Xbox One and PS4, which has eroded enthusiasm in new titles in the run up to the next-gen machines.
Ubisoft Montpellier, developer behind Rayman Legends, has revealed their next project to be the "touching yet comical adventure" Valiant Hearts: The Great War, inspired by first World War stories.
We follow five people and a dog through battles on the Western Front. It's powered by the UbiArt Framework engine, and so uses a comic-book 2D style. Platforms yet to be determined.
Volition's Saints Row IV is once again number one in the UK all format chart, followed by Ubisoft's Splinter Cell: Blacklist coming in second. Square Enix's Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn debuted 3rd.
Rayman Legends entered 6th, followed by EA Sports' Madden NFL 25 7th. Payday 2 has risen 9th from 18th. The Last of Us came 13th, and Tomb Raider 16th.
Rayman Legends is almost here as it releases this week and so Ubisoft has put up the now obligatory launch trailer. It's powered using the UbiArt Framework which was purpose built for colourful platforming.
Originally devised as a Wii U exclusive, Ubisoft expanded Rayman Legends to launch on PC, Xbox 360, PS3 and Vita. It's out first in Australia tomorrow, August 29th.
Ubisoft announced today that Rayman Legends, already revealed for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PS Vita, will also be made available for the PC when it launches for all platforms on 30th August, 2013.
Rayman Legends retains the fantasy appeal of its predecessor Rayman Origins while adding a multitude of gaming modes, new characters, new environments and a new soundtrack. Rayman Legends PC is being developed by Ubisoft Chengdu in collaboration with Ubisoft Montpellier.
