Following Rayman Origins, our heroes take a 100-year nap, allowing nightmares to infest the Glade of Dreams. Once Rayman awakes from this mysterious sleep, he must set off on a new adventure with his friends to restore order in the universe.
While traveling between five different worlds, players must defeat legendary enemies to save the Teensies from these evil villains. Rayman Legends features a wide range of gameplay, including traditional Rayman platforming action and new music rhythm-based stages.
The game retains the fantasy appeal of its predecessor, Rayman Origins, while adding a multitude of clever and entertaining gaming modes, new characters, new environments and a new soundtrack. The award-winning team of artists, designers and composers have also returned with an advanced UbiArt engine to include multi-dimension gameplay elements, an improved lighting system and updated game rendering that elevate Rayman's previous graphics to the next level.
Rayman Legends features a variety of uniquely-themed levels, including several musical maps set to creative soundtracks and a spooky, medieval theme. Players also can connect online with friends for a variety of challenges that test their skill and speed, and can see where they rank on the worldwide leaderboards.
Thanks to the enhanced capabilities of the 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 PS4. 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. The PS4 will allow use of the console's 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.
In preparation for the launch on next-gen, a browser-based PC demo of Rayman Legends is now available to play online. The demo will feature three different levels from the Rayman universe. Playable maps include Teensies in Trouble, Toad Story and the fan-favorite musical map Castle Rock. Play the demo using your Xbox 360 controller or with a mouse and keyboard.
