Now you can play one of the best platformers of the last generation of consoles on the current one. In a tweet last Thursday, Major Nelson announced that Rayman Origins has been added to the list of backwards compatible games for the Xbox One.
We're a smidge late in reporting this since it started on Tuesday, but the Xbox Live Countdown to 2013 Sale may be the single best sale the Xbox 360 has ever had. Each day until December 31st consists of themed daily sales, with today's Platformers sale knocking co-op standout Rayman Origins down to just ten bucks. And on top of that, more than ten XBLA and Games on Demand titles are on sale for the diration of the promotion, such as fantastic co-op titles Sonic 4 Episode II and Simpsons Arcade. Head past the break to find out which games feature cooperative multiplayer!
I have no doubt in my mind that the widely praised platformer title, Rayman Origins, will be getting a well deserved sequel in the future. From a few screenshots taken from a marketing survey, the type of game the sequel will be like has seeming been hinted at. So far, it looks like it involves a vast world including Greek gods and dragons, both of which are equally viable in a formula for “awesome”.
Probably one of the most overlooked games of 2011, Ubisoft has stated that its return to Rayman’s roots with Rayman Origins was indeed a profitable success!
Ubisoft has announced a PC version of Rayman Origins with a release date of March 29th, 2012. Rayman Origins is an excellent co-op game that we gave a 4.5 out of 5 thanks to a great platforming experience shared by all. The PC version will retain the four player local co-op support, but that's not the best news.
Have you checked out the demo for Rayman Origins? Did you know it supports four player local co-op? I just signed in three other controllers and gave it a whirl, and it appears to be a worthy co-op platformer. I'll have to try again with three other people. A one-year-old and two pugs do not make good co-op partners. Check out this video and see all the different ways you can beat the game. You can expect our Co-Op Review soon.
The AAA co-op games have been coming thick and fast in the past few weeks, but there is still room for more co-op action in the form of Rayman Origins; due out on Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii on the 15th November. To celebrate the launch, Ubisoft got completely legless (and armless) with a new launch trailer.
The best things come in tens; ten toes, ten fingers, Ten Commandments, Ten Ton Tessa the lass down the road. Ubisoft obviously agrees with me as they have produced a series of videos highlighting ten things in Rayman: Origins. We've already seen 10 Ways to Fight, but how about the useful 10 Ways to Get Around? Or the less pleasant 10 Ways to Die?
We got a brand new trailer today for the upcoming four player co-op platformer, Rayman Origins. The trailer showcases Rayman's adventure in the belly of the beast, or rather, inside a giant fat red dragon. It's a colorful and impressive looking game that is sure to look even better on a nice big HDTV.
Oh, the violence! In the below trailer, Rayman and friends show you ten hilarious ways to "bubblize" enemies in Rayman: Origins, the four-player co-op game due next month. Lemme tell ya - it ain't pretty.
Four-player co-op title Rayman: Origins has a lot of competition this year. Releasing this November 15th, it has to contend with the usual holiday lineup. For a cartoony side-scroller the outlook is bleak.
