Ubisoft has announced that last year's critically acclaimed 2D platformer Rayman Origins will finally be coming to the PC on March 30.

Perhaps the best news for PC gamers is that all retail versions of the game will be shipping without any DRM. (Digital versions will presumably be saddled with whatever DRM the retailer — Steam, for example — imposes by default.) Yep, the very same Ubisoft that championed always-on DRM and regularly blames piracy for their lack of PC releases is sending a game out into the wild without anything protection. I guess you can teach an old dog new tricks.

Here are the announced system specs:
