Ubisoft celebrates 35th anniversary, giving away Rayman Origins for free

For anyone who is unaware of how great Rayman Origins is, it’s a highly underrated masterpiece title from Ubisoft. It is the fourth entry in the Rayman franchise and was released a decade ago in November 2011. Upon its original debut, it became available for Xbox 360, PlayStation, and Wii worldwide. The following year 2012 then brought more versions for PlayStation Vita, PC, and Nintendo 3DS.

When it comes to its critical reception, it was immensely applauded for the graphics, its level design, and also a great sense of humor. However, despite everything being good, Rayman Origins suffered a slow growth during its initial days after launch. Fortunately, the sales increased in the end and made a good amount of revenue for Ubisoft. A Mobile game based on it, titled Rayman Jungle Run, was also released in 2013.
