Ubisoft Montpellier has today announced that their vibrant and manic side-scrolled Rayman Legends is now available for the new generation PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, making the title even more multiplatform than it was before.
With the upgraded capabilities of next-gen consoles, the award-winning visuals of Rayman Legends have been enhanced to show the hand-drawn artwork in even sharper detail and loading time between maps has been suppressed. Each platform will have a set of exclusive playable characters to unlock in the Heroes Gallery. On Xbox One, there are two characters designed after the infamous villain from Far Cry 3, Ray Vaas and Far Glob, as well as Splinter Ray, inspired by Sam Fisher. PlayStation 4 players will have access to Assassin Ray, inspired by the hero Edward Kenway from Assassin’s Creed IV Black Flag. Both platforms will also support the VIP hero, Champion Ray, who is unlocked mainly by the highest-ranked players in the Online Challenges Mode.
Outside of the exclusive console content, there are also unique gameplay mechanics for each platform. These include touch pad support for the PlayStation 4, which introduces a new "Camera Mode" that allows players to freeze the game and zoom in on the current screen, and of course PlayStation Vita Remote Play support.
The Xbox One version will include 10 exclusive challenges to unlock new achievements. These challenges require you to perform specific actions during a limited amount of time and are associated with various aspects of the game, such as player skills, co-op play, Kung Foot, and more.
Rayman Legends is now available across PC, Wii U, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Check out the next-gen launch trailer below.
