Although the genre hasn't been entirely consistent over the years, the platformer has always been a staple of the gaming medium. From Super Mario Bros to Super Mario Odyssey, we've had a lot of different adventures with the genre, from 2D to 3D, across multiple different worlds, landscapes, and developer teams.

The platformer is still reaching critical acclaim too, with Psychonauts 2 landing a game of the year nomination at this year's Game Awards, and a sequel to Odyssey still highly anticipated by fans and critics alike.

But, there are some platformers that don't get their due credit - and as it turns out, one of the very best modern platformers that didn't get enough love at launch has become completely free for a short time.

Rayman Origins Is Free On PC

Ubisoft Is Giving Away Rayman For Free

The criminally overlooked Rayman Origins has just been made completely free on PC. Even though you can jump into the game at no cost at all, be warned that it's only for a short time,

This offer comes as a part of Ubisoft's 35th anniversary celebrations, giving players free games and discounts galore. With Rayman being one of Ubisoft's mascots, it makes a lot of sense.

Rayman Origins itself is celebrating its 10th anniversary too, meaning that the timing was just right for Ubisoft to flog it entirely for free. It's a great pickup too, as it's a blisteringly good 2D platformer that never really got the love it deserved.

How Do I Download Rayman Origins For Free?

Rayman Origins Gameplay

To bag your free game you'll have to use Ubisoft's own launcher (hold your boos) Ubisoft Connect - download it, make an account, and you'll be able to find the free game there. It'll only be free to download until December 22, so be quick about it!

This isn't the first time Ubisoft has given us a gift, with previous freebies including the Assassin's Creed Chronicles trilogy, Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, and Anno 1404: History Edition. When it comes to retro gaming though, Origins captures the spirit of 1995's OG Rayman

Rayman Origins most definitely deserves to be added to your backlog, despite the fact it was largely outshone by Rayman Legends two years later. Still, Origins' co-op mode truly makes the game ten times better. Have fun... for free!
