Wait, Ubisoft Isn’t Delaying A PC Version For A Change?
Ubisoft is notoriously known for not liking PC gamers. In a bid to “curb piracy”, the company introduced extremely restrictive DRM measures for it’s PC titles, which often were shoddy ports to begin with. That didn’t sit well with the PC community, especially after they were usually forced to wait a whole month, and sometimes more, after a game’s console release for it to reach PC.
But we could be seeing a new leaf being turned by Ubisoft. A while back the publisher said it wouldn’t pursue it’s restrictive DRM policies, and now they’ve announced that a PC version of a certain anticipated title will launch on the same day as it’s console counterparts.

The title in question? Well, Rayman Legends of course. Don’t look at me like that. Seriously, stop.
Considering how incredible Rayman Origins was, Legends is certainly one of the bigger titles set to release next month, with the title shipping on all platforms come August 30th. The PC version will of course be a console port, handled by Ubisoft Chengdu, in conjunction with the game’s main developer Ubisoft Montpellier.
If you care to load up UPlay again and perhaps pre-order Legends there, you’ll be glad to know that Ubisoft is offering a free version of Rayman Origins. Then again, it is UPlay.
