Though it’s already available for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii — not to mention arriving next month for the 3DS and Vita handhelds – Rayman Origins will also be storming its way onto the PC March 29th, 2012.
The game will be available through retailers and online stores. However, those who preorder through participating online retailers will receive a free digital copy of Rayman 2: The Great Escape.
In a discussion with Rock, Paper, Shotgun, Ubisoft mentioned that there will be “no DRM at all” for retail copies of Rayman Origins. Digital copies will require a one-time online activation though.
While Ubisoft hasn’t had the smoothest track record with DRM and their published games, it’s comforting to see them lightening up on some restrictions. Ubi had a tough streak of severely restricting just about every game they released with vicious piracy constraints, prime examples being From Dust and at one point outright cancelling the PC version of Ghost Recon: Future Soldier.
