Rayman Origins - FREE @ Twitch / Ubisoft

Posted 3rd JunEdited by:"Ageli"
Ahead of its E3 press conference this year, Ubisoft will host a speedrun of Rayman 2: The Great Escape in honor of the series turning twenty. On June 10 at 1:30 p.m. ET/10:30 a.m. PT, speedrunner Glackum will take on the challenge via Ubisoft’s Twitch channel.
The any percentage world record for Rayman 2 is held by Darno_PL, clocking in at one hour, 15 minutes, and 22 seconds. Glackum, who previously held the Rayman 2 record back less than a week ago, is hoping to beat that time during Ubisoft’s speedrun event and reclaim the throne. Famed Awesome and Summer Games Done Quick personality and Rayman runner SpikeVegeta will commentate Glackum’s June 10 run.
Players who watch the run live can earn a free copy of Rayman Origins for Uplay. All fans need to do is log into their Twitch account, link their Uplay account with Twitch, and watch the speedrun for 30 minutes or more. When the run is over, Ubisoft will gift the reboot platformer to eligible viewers.
Ubisoft (called Ubi Soft at the time) originally published Rayman 2 for the Nintendo 64, Sega Dreamcast, and Windows PC in October 1999.

Also, the speedrun starts at 3:30pm BST on Ubisoft’s Twitch channel.

Cheerios!

Check if you have it already as Ubisoft have given it away in the past.
Thanks

Indeed is in my nevwr downloaded, never played list!!
For some reason, you can’t link your uPlay account from the Twitch site, so you need to head to the uPlay site and link your Twitch there instead.

Scroll down the bottom to link your accounts.

Also, the speedrun starts at 6 : 3 0 p m BST on Ubisoft’s Twitch channel.

I usually subscribe to the deal or set a little reminder on my calendar.

Shame. I might watch the speed run regardless though.
We need an 'Add to calendar' facility on here, would be cool.

Nope. You just need to link your accounts and then make sure to watch at least 30m of the stream to get the game added to your uPlay library (I think).
Personally I would just buy legends . Its usually very cheap, comes with this game and personally I didn't like this one nearly as much but loved legends (the music lvls are worth the money alone )

Thanks. Was about to complain that this freebie was too much hassle, but turns out I've already got it in my never ending list of unplayed games
In honor of the series turning twenty...


Eh? The first one of these came out in 1995!

Oh yeah, you’re right. I was just copying the BST time from the OP’s description and didn’t notice it was wrong.
I LIKE FREE GAMES AND BISCUITS!!!

The game will be added to your Uplay games list in a few days time after watching 30 minutes of the stream after linking your Ubisoft account and Twitch account via the Ubisoft Twitch Drops link I posted via 'Add Info' a few days ago.

Is there a way to check I did it correctly?
I think I figured out were I went wrong - I forgot to click on the accept button - well there's an hour of my life wasted!
Edited by: "aLV426" 10th Jun
Tooooo long! I'd rather pay the £3.74 than all this fuss. Still, thanks op, and I hope you guys got it.

None that I know just have to wait a few days and hope it shows in your Uplay library, as long as you're activated on the Ubisoft Twitch Drops page and watched 30 minutes it should've worked.

With E3 happening, I was too distracted to remember to do this. Oh well, think I already own it on Xbox anyway.
Yay got my copy
