This is the fifth installment of the Rayman series to be released from Ubisoft. Originally as a WiiU exclusive, it was later announced that it would be released across all platforms. The thing is, Murphy and an additional five player co-op are exclusive to WiiU owners, so if you are on console, you cannot access five player co-op or Murphy.
Some new additions to the game include Rayman Rocks, which is a song synchronized game mode where you must play the levels to the beats of the songs in order to complete it, and Murphy who is a new character that can interacts with the environment to help Rayman, or interact with enemies to make beating them easier.
- Four-Player Co-op: Once again you and 3 friends can save the Glade of Dreams in online or offline co-op. Jump in and jump out at any time during the 80+ levels of gameplay!
- 3D Boss Battles: The bosses have a big advantage over Rayman’s gang– an extra dimension! Dragons and other epic creatures can attack from all angles, so you’ll have to be on top of your game to defeat them.
- Rayman Rocks: See if you have what it takes to be a Platforming Hero– jump to the beat of a drum, punch to the bass line, even zip-line during a guitar sustain. Timing and rhythm are the key to completing these maps set to music.
- New Online Challenge Mode: Connect with your friends through a variety of challenges that will test your skill and speed. Check the leaderboards to see where you rank around the world.
