Michel Ancel, the creator of Rayman, Beyond Good & Evil, and Raving Rabbids, will be returning to the Rayman series next month with Rayman Origins. As the November 15 release date approaches, Ubisoft has sent along some new shots showing off the 2D side-scrolling action and four-player co-op, as well as a Q&A with game director Sebastien Morin. The Q&A reveals that the game will be comprised of five universes and 10 different worlds, as well as an extra world (Land of the Livid Dead) that will be “a bit hard to reach but is a whole new universe.” Each world will unlock an ability to continue onto the next, though any planet can be revisited as many times as the player wishes.
Sega has just released the PC version of Avalanche Studio’s fantastic action title Renegade Ops. Players control one of four mercenaries, each with their own special abilities and vehicles, as they zip around exotic locales in their war against the nefarious Inferno. The download-only release also features local two-player split-screen and online four-player co-op.
Forza 4’s next DLC car pack is just around the corner. Set to launch on Live Marketplace on November 1, the November Speed Pack will include 10 cars for 560 MS Points. A few of the rides include the 2012 Aston Martin Virage, 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air, and 2011 Ferrari #62 Risi Competizione F458 Italia.
The Wizardry role-playing series, once a staple of PC gaming, has found itself in the limelight again. Thanks to the PlayStation Network and the efforts of XSeed and a handful of Japanese developers, whose fondness of first-person dungeon crawling is unendingly endearing, the series’ once-dormant status in North America has changed. And it looks as if the upswing isn’t over yet. Japanese developer Acquire Corp. has announced that they will be bringing their PSN release Wizardry: Labyrinth of Lost Souls to the iPhone and iPod touch next week. The free-to-download release will hit on November 3 and allow players to enjoy the game up to level five and the first floor of the Dungeon of Trials, with the full version unlocked for $9.99.
