It looks like there is some good news for Wii U owners at last, in specific relation to Rayman Legends and the huge disappointment after the game has been delayed by Ubisoft in order to take the game multi-platform. The developers for the game have announced that a new online mode is coming to Rayman Legends and will be available to download exclusively on the Wii U in a couple of months.
Don’t forget that Rayman Legends is now officially due out on Xbox 360, PS3 and Nintendo Wii at the same time in September. We told you recently that an exclusive demo was coming in the meantime to Wii U to make up for the delay, but now it looks like this will be replaced by the online mode – which looks a lot more worthwhile and content rich.
This online challenges mode is releasing in April, essentially giving Wii U owners a great head start on the game before Xbox 360 and PS3 owners. The mode will support up to 5 players simultaneously, with users having to complete certain challenges and objectives to compete on the active online leaderboards.
A gameplay demonstration of the online mode has been provided by Ubisoft and gives you a basic idea of what will be coming. The most appealing point that we can see, aside from the glorious graphics, is that challenges are going to be updated daily and weekly, meaning that Wii U owners should have something to keep them busy until the full game is out in September.
The download is also going to be free as well which is fantastic, and will be available from the eShop sometime in April. Has this mended the wounds somewhat in your opinion, or are you still pretty outraged that the higher up execs at Ubisoft still won’t give the green light for the finished game to release?
Either way, we think it’s a pretty good compromise considering it is free. Watch the action and let us know if you have changed your views yet.
