Michele Ancel's critically acclaimed side-scrolling platformer, Rayman Origins, is finally making its way to PC, with Ubisoft confirming the game will hit retail at the end of March.

Interestingly, Joystiq points out that a bit of Twitter banter has revealed the the game will not be as DRM-heavy as many other Ubisoft games - something the French publisher has been scolded for being aggressive over in the past.
We're announcing Rayman Origins for PC right the hell now! Also, retail versions will have NO DRM. None, zero, zip. Ohemgee! - @NateHawke

Yes, Rayman Origins PC should be available on all e-shops including Steam; and no, it won't include any "complicated" DRM. - @RaymanGame
Of course it will still require online activation, and Steam has its own security features, so "no DRM" is still a bit of a stretch, but it's nice to hear they know there's a consumer issue with Ubi's DRM habits as they currently stand. You can check out our review of the game as played on Xbox 360, right here (9.2/10).

... any "complicated" DRM

Correct me if I'm wrong, but that doesn't mean it is going to be DRM free...

(no point in changing the article, but yea... ubi's concepts of 'DRM' would dictate that "non-complicated" DRM may only be as easy as submitting a DNA test before playing...)

Never heard of it. Why don't you guys put pictures in with your posts to get people interested?

What does DRM free mean? You can copy the game to another computer and run it without steam? Because if it doesn't mean that, then... ???

Playing this on PS3 atm - brings back all the memories of the original (which was waaaay too hard)!
