Rayman Legends PS Vita patch will add missing content

Ubisoft says Invasion Mode levels will be added to platformer via a free patch at a later date.

by

Rayman Legends for the PlayStation Vita will be patched to add in the game's missing Invasion Mode levels, publisher Ubisoft announced today.

"Due to a longer development time than expected, we couldn't initially include the Invasion Mode--essentially, a second take on existing Rayman Legends maps--in the Vita version of the game," communications manager Gary Steinman said. "However, we can confirm that the Invasion Mode will be added via a free patch, at a later date."

When Rayman Legends launched earlier this week for PS Vita in North America, users reported that the content found in the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U versions was missing.

Rayman Legends for PS Vita was recently delayed in the United Kingdom. It will arrive in that region on September 13. For more on Rayman Legends, check out GameSpot's review of the console version.

I'm still not over what beautiful games Rayman games are.

I bought the game last night for Vita. I can't believe I've never played a Rayman game before. I love it.

Good for them, they could have easily flipped off the vita owners and told em to screw it.

Currently playing the vita version; and i must say, Murphy is really annoying. You can't go back, you miss hidden levels and stages (except there's something I'm missing). I've had to start the first stage 3 times already to get all the hidden levels. There should have been a way to switch between your character and murphy

Got the Vita version. I want to play this game when I travel. Rayman Origins was incredible on the Vita. I played more of it on my Vita than the PS3 version.

I get the feeling that they are only fixing this because of the outcry of the consumers.... Take a note from ps4 not the xbox one way........



I Will purchase the game with no regret now :)

Rayman Legends totally was meant to be played on the Wii U.  Play it there or don't bother.

At least Ubisoft is fixing Rayman legends via patch for the PSvita. But maybe they though no one would notice?

Funny how the two least selling systems at the moment get the versions with the most content.

So they sold people an unfinished game at full price? fuck them.

Just going to be a "Negative Nancy" here and say this probably wouldn't have happened if Ubi had just released the Wii U version and then spent time perfecting the ports. Meh, but what do i know? I'm just a consumer that chose not to buy a product because Ubi decided my money wasn't good enough by itself.

those origin levels are frustrating imo...its cool they included them but ugh..so hard

Dear god, yes, it sucks that vita players can't play those levels yet. But the complaints here make it seem like everyone is SURE they will charge money for something they just advertised as free. Hey guys, while we're at it, can i offer you these amazing tinfoil hats? Mind-probe proof, guaranteed!

So the Vita version has all the content of the console versions, plus the "exclusive" Wii U touch control levels, plus five extra levels.... and is $20 cheaper? And runs at 60 fps? And we're complaining? Are we entitled or what?

Just add online co-op you fucktards, in all versions. This is 2013, not 1997.
 This lack-of-feature is the only barrier holding me back from buying it.

Inferior version confirmed.

Not sure why people are mad. I bought the game today after reading this news. Fantastic game. I haven't played Origins so the Origins levels are going to be all new to me as well. Daily and Weekly challenges are pretty much invasion levels anyways. Having a blast with this right now!

So now they just rush the game out, sell us an incomplete product full price and then add the missing content with a "free" patch later...

I got the Vita version on PsN for $36, incredible game and well well worth the price. Shame these levels are delayed but hey, at least they aren't payed DLC which is what I thought they wee gonna try and do

Nelson says: Ha ha!. Wasn't Rayman delayed because ubisoft claimed they wanted to add more content to the game? and now I read news that they are missing content? lol

lol, another crap trend in gaming:  here's content that should have been included originally, but, now we're giving it to you free!

@DeViLzzz The vita's version is pretty much the same as the Wii U version since it also has touch controls.

 @DeViLzzz Wii U version: 8.0 PS3 and 360 version: 9.0. I'll stick with the better versions.

@DeViLzzz I should be getting this within the next few days, along with the Wonderful 101. I cannot wait.

@HonorOfGod Didn't hear that its going to be included in a patch and they didn't have the development time. Geez. Relax. Not like you ever was going to buy it on the Vita anyways. Don't know why your getting so upset.

@KBFloYd Origins was fun, I didn't find them overally difficult until I got to the latter part of the game and all they take to complete is a little perseverance.

@Phange_2 It's still an incomplete product. You want this to become a standard in video games down the road?

@willzihang is this due to you not having any real life friends??? What a stupid comment to make. 

Platformers take a lot of precision and the slightest bit of lag could ruin that experience. Sure its a shame they didn't even try it but just because it isn't there shouldn't be a reason to dismiss a game, its an outstanding game.

@PStrife yes because a portable version of a full console game thats $20 cheaper is inferior. Good one. 

Phange_2

@grbolivar "full price". You mean $39.99 for exactly the same game that goes for $59.99 on consoles?

@udubdawgz A trend? Where is the trend? I am sorry but I like NOT paying for content that isn't included. Originally would mean a delay and they stated they didn't have time. Relax. You people are pathetic. I think your likely just hating on the Vita. I can't think how you could think rationally with the way you think.

Bahamut50

@udubdawgz ... Umm, i thought the crap trend involved having to pay for dlc... not get it free... god gamers are setting a worse trend then devs lately... the stupid, baseless complaints these days...

@kishen95 When u can play the PS Vita version on a tv then talk and with that $100 thing they are releasing I believe you can do that.  I forget what the heck it is called.

@ChiefFreeman Too bad the game was designed for the Wii U. But go ahead listen to those uneducated reviewers. THey wouldn't be doing that job if they weren't trash anyway.

@blazin640 Not missing anything if I don't want it. I downloaded their free attempt to make it up to Wii U owners, and I'm fine with that.

@Aaron_130 @willzihang Yes, I know 'the game' is good. But it is obviously a fact that many people don't have local friends that have any interest in playing it. One of the main features of this game is co-op? You accept as I just said that quite a few people won't be able to play co-op?

If a main feature is omitted then that is a good reason to skip a game, and online gameplay is not just a 'small omission' either. Don't pretend it isn't.

Please: you don't know what you're talking about: online platformers have existed for years; and to try and compare the complexity to something like Counterstrike (which by the way is ancient now, and internet speeds were good enough then) is silly.

@Phange_2 @grbolivar Why people ignore this fact, and complain about a YES ITS FREE patch for 20 bucks less is beyond me or you, it seems. xP

@Mkeegs79 @udubdawgz  

lol.  vita?  wth, does my comment have to do with the vita, lol?

so, now we know you don't know how to observe an obvious trend that's been occurring for years. 

well-done.

rational thought seems tough for some, so, i'm not surprised you're having problems thinking about how i could think rationally.

@Bahamut50 @udubdawgz  

you guys are fools.  your "rationale" doesn't even apply.  you completely miss the point. 

and, so due to your lack of basic perception and comprehension you start talking about "baseless complaints."

lol, learn to think critically.

@Bahamut50 @udubdawgz I have lost faith in gamers. They just whine and complain whenever they have a chance. Its really pathetic.

@grbolivar @Phange_2 You are ignoring the fact that it's still cheaper then getting the console version for essentially the same game minus couch co-op.

@blazin640 @udubdawgz @Bahamut50  

lol.  i see you emphasize the FREE aspect of this story.  that tells me and others that YOU'RE exactly part of the problem.  

my argument works regardless of paid dlc.  

day 1 dlc, lol?  you've got to be joking.  day 1 dlc should be illegal.  it should be scorned by everyone who cares about the industry.

day 1?  crikes dude, ALL dlc that is within WEEKS of release should be a "FREE" patch.

you fail to understand this issue. 

blazin640
blazin640

@udubdawgz @Bahamut50 I think you completely miss the point. Why complain about something that is still going to be included in the game FOR FREE. 


Your argument only works for paid dlc or day 1 dlc. This content is absolutely free so who cares? 

udubdawgz

@blazin640 @Bahamut50 @udubdawgz  

the only thing pathetic is pubs/devs pushing a "free" patch to something that should have been on the original release and idiot comments about "whine and complain."
