Rayman Legends will be available on PC at launch

Ubisoft confirms Rayman Legends will launch on PC alongside console versions.

Rayman Legends will be released on the PC, Ubisoft has confirmed.

The PC version of the game will be released on the same day as the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, and Vita versions: August 30 in Europe, and September 3 in North America.

The PC port will be handled by Ubisoft Chengdu, in conjunction with the game's main developer Ubisoft Montpellier, with the Chinese studio having previously worked on Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game.

Ubisoft adds that anyone preordering the PC version of Rayman Legends on UPlay will be able to download Rayman Origins for free.

Rayman Legends was originally announced as a Wii U exclusive, but Ubisoft delayed the game earlier this year to allow for a multiplatform release.

Ubisoft says the extra development time on Rayman Legends has allowed for more content to be added to the game.

Do you think Gamespot will give all versions the same score?  Or, do you think they will rate the Wii U version the highest?  After playing the demo on Wii U, I really can't see any other version comparing!  This game was designed with the Wii U gamepad in mind specifically.  Agree?

You played Legends on PC? do you mean Origins? because Legends isn't out yet lol Oh i'll probably buy it on Steam myself when it comes out along with the console and handheld versions just to compare them.

Yes, this has NOTHING to do with the idea that pc gamers who don't have the consoles. Hell, just the fact they could find this on a steam sale might sway them enough. Either way, I played legends on the pc and am happy to hear that they are going this route.

Hey Ubisoft ....

buying this game used for Wii U where the best experience will happen

no money for you Ubisoft for screwing over Nintendo and the people that bought the console early cuz they expected this game to come out at or near launch

Ubi's going to make me play this through Uplay aren't they?

The game looks and plays great, unfortunately it's coming out at the wrong time. I'll get it for the Wii U eventually, just not sure when.

Cross buy PS3 + Vita would be awesome, but i don't see that happening.

Ubisoft is just as awesome as u-play is awful. they should just get rid of it and go full steam. Can't play assassins creed single player because servers got hacked...really?

well, still better than sucking as a company and software (right EA?)

I'll get this game for sure, it's one of the most fun co-ops games there are, but i might get the disc version for ps3 so i can bring to my friends house. Still glad this went on PC, my rayman origins copy is steam.

Every company is always very hesitate in making the PC version of any game, because of all the cheaters out there, and the honest buyer like my self and others have to pay because of them. But I'm glad that they gonna have a PC version, and it will be out at the same time as the others.

To those who wonder, playing as Murphy with the Wii U Gamepad is a blast and extremely fun with friend! So I'd recommend the game on the Wii U first before any other console!

All credit to Ubisoft, Rayman Origins was the most enjoyable platformer I have ever played and I am eagerly awaiting my pre-ordered Wii U version to arrive in late August.

Great news. I personally loved Rayman Origins. It was great value for money with fantastic replay-ability.

Good news for PC gamers I guess, but I can't help how *** Ubisoft is being with this title. First it was a Wii U only title; now it is being released to almost every now gen system that can play the game. Whatever...

@Akijo If I ever get this game it will be on WiiU for sure. I tried the demo, played with Murphy and I love it!

@Kenta Hovland It'll be around 60$ probably, like the first one.

@rpvarela Go for the Wii U version or console version if you dont have a Wii U, this game is absolutely awesome with friends :D

@rpvarela I wasn't a fan of the 3D games in the series but Rayman Origins was incredible and one of the best side scrolling platformers I've ever played. It looks as though Legends will only raise the bar further. Definitely give them a try.

@danyjr I really enjoyed the hidden world and "real" final boss. It was such a challenge to get through but so very rewarding. Awesome game all around.

@lifeline81 It's still on the Wii U, so what's the problem?  Yeah it got delayed, but now it's a much better game than it was before.

@lifeline81 Why not? Every decent game should be made available to as many people as possible. :)

I think he means multiplatform games, consoles need exclusives to sell hardware.

@Akijo @rpvarela 

u can play the co-op on pc. but this game is good to have disc version (for a console that most of your friends have preferably)

@Akijo @rpvarela Yeah, the Wii U won't be coming to my country until 2014, sadly... I'd love to have one. Guess I'll settle for the pc version.
