A new trailer has been released for Rayman Origins, showing 10 ways to travel. Furthermore Sebastien Morin, Game Director, has taken part in a Q&A session regarding the game.
It seems there will be five universes and ten different worlds to discover, plus the ‘Land of the Livid Dead’ “which is a bit hard to reach but is a whole new universe as well.” Each new world will present you with a new ability to learn, although running will be available right at the start.
In terms of flying, apparently riding a mosquito is the way to go, although you’ll learn how to glide.
“At first it’s a very helpful tactic to extend a jump and land out of harm’s way. But we also put a lot of wind in the game, which can extend a glide to more of a flying action. But that’s not always a good thing. Winds are there to help or hinder you, push you to safety or towards a spikey death.”
“Also, some enemies use the wind as traps and it should be noted that you’re not the only one who can fly!”
