Ubisoft also answered a few burning questions that were directed at such topics as the recent delay, the difference between Rayman Origins
and Rayman Legends
, and what James Bond has to do with the game.Q: Has the delay allowed you to improve the game? If so, can you give examples of how?
We added a lot of new content in the game, including very impressive 3D Bosses that the players will have to face at the end of each world. And we also added almost 30 new levels that will really boost the overall length of the game! Some of these levels can be played in new and different ways, offering a great diversity to the game.Q: What are the differences between Rayman Origins and Rayman legends?
One of the main goals of Rayman Legends is to be the next evolution of Rayman Origins. Rayman Legends is a very extensive game in terms of scope and diversity. Several new and improved aspects are now included: 3D Bosses, new worlds, new characters, dedicated Murfy levels, musical stages, an online Challenges Mode, and even more bonuses yet to be revealed. In total, it will take players more than 20 hours of gameplay to fully complete the game, which is composed of more than 120 levels. And in addition, they will enjoy infinite hours of fun in the online Challenges Mode (with new challenges randomly generated every day).Q: In the Universe of 20,000 Lums under the Sea, we saw some references to ‘Jules Vernes’ and ‘James Bond’, could you please tell us more about that?
This world is a great example of the diversity we have in Rayman Legends. It takes place in an underwater base under the ocean where evil sentries and Toads dressed as Sam Fisher are patrolling. The sentries are casting light everywhere they go and you must avoid stepping in these lights, to avoid being fried by lasers! So we’re basically bringing a stealth gameplay to the Rayman universe.Rayman Legends
will be available in Europe on August 30th and in North America on September 3rd.
