Ubisoft have announced that Rayman Legends is to release one week earlier than previously announced for Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The game will now be available on February 21st, 2014.
Thanks to the enhanced capabilities of these next-gen consoles, the graphics of Rayman Legends have been upgraded and the loading time between maps suppressed. Players on both platforms will also get exclusive costumes for Rayman and Globox: Splinter Ray, Ray Vaas and Globox Vaas on Xbox One; and Assassin Ray on PlayStation 4. They will also be able to buy the Funky Ray costume with Uplay points.
Players will also be able to take advantage of exclusive features on each console. The Xbox One version will include 10 exclusive challenges to unlock new time-limited Achievements; while the PlayStation 4 will allow use of the PlayStation 4 controller’s touchpad for actions such as scratching Lucky Tickets, as well as making and sharing screenshots and videos with the community, and using the PlayStation Vita to continue playing the game even with the TV turned off!
Rayman Legends is the sequel to Rayman Origins. In this opus, Rayman and Globox awaken after a 100-year nap that allowed nightmares to infest the Glade of Dreams. The Supreme Being Bubble Dreamer sends them once again on an adventure to fight the evil creatures and restore order in the universe. Rayman Legends features a wide range of gameplay, including traditional Rayman platforming action and new musical, rhythm-based stages.
