Originally launched in 2003, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, is getting a full-scale remake by UbiSoft for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows.
As well as a graphical upgrade, the camera, controls, and combat have been completely rebuilt and updated for todays standards. You will be able to choose between the original or modernised mapping.
When playing the game, you will also have the chance to unlock the first Prince of Persia, and then access if from the main menu when you wish.
Although the games creator, Jordan Mechner didn’t play an active role in the remake (he says making it once was enough!), he says “the team kept me in the loop, beginning with their first question two years ago: What things did you and the POP team cut or compromise in the original game that you’d most wish to see added?”
He adds “Last week, I played a recent build. It gave me tingles. I was relieved to discover that my gameplay reflexes and level-map memories of fifteen years ago are still valid, letting me fluidly navigate a newly-rendered game world that’s lush, sensual, and immersive in ways the Montreal team and I could only dream of in 2003”
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake will be available from 21st January 2021.
