Ubisoft and developer Ubisoft Montpellier take you back to the early days of the Glades of Dreams in this new installment of Rayman.

The story as with all Rayman’s is simple, yet a little strange, the story details the origin and early times of its titular character. It is set in the Glade of Dreams, a world created by the Bubble Dreamer, a creature which takes on different forms throughout the game. His nightmares are starting to transform the world, as good Electoons turn into the Darktoons and evil creatures appear in the world. Rayman and his friends must stop this and save the Glades of Dreams.

In a Q&A with the games Director Sebastien Morin he said “There are 5 universes and 10 different worlds to discover. Additionally, we have the Land of the Livid Dead, which is a bit hard to reach but is a whole new universe as well. At the beginning, each world is introduced one after the other. In each, you will gain a new ability and master how to use them. Then after you complete the first set of worlds, you’ve grown enough to be dropped in the wild. Just like that a whole new set of worlds are revealed and you have a lot of places to discover at your disposal”. So with 10 ways to explore the environment what changes have been made to the animations compared to the other games? “Rayman and his gang have a lot of new
abilities, so there’s a lot more animation. Besides having all the animations for the abilities, you have to create more animations for combinations and transitions between those abilities you have. So each playable character has more than 250 animations! I can’t even begin to count the animations of the evil characters, because they can be defeated in a lot of funny ways.”

Check out the video and watch for its release on November 24.
