The announcement of the remake of “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” took place in September 2020 and it was actually promised at the time that the new edition would appear in the following January. As is well known, nothing came of it, because rather some release postponements followed. Now Ubisoft has given a water level report on the project.
The company announces that the development work on the remake of “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” has now been taken over by Ubisoft Montreal. The original has already been set up there and they want to build on the work of the previous studios. Regarding a release date, they are very vague and say that the game will be released when it is finished.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is Ubisoft’s first-ever full remake, utilizing a new approach to combat, puzzle-solving and time rewinding. The new design, created with updated technology for today’s gaming systems, includes new camera angles and completely reworked sequences. In addition, players will be able to see a beautiful and completely reimagined 9th Century Persia through the eyes of the developers.
Players will relive the prince’s journey to salvation after he unknowingly unleashed the sands of time upon the Sultan’s kingdom. As in the original, players will embody the heroic prince and navigate the palace alongside the Maharaja’s daughter, Princess Farah, battling sword-wielding enemies, maneuvering through trap-filled rooms and finally confronting the evil Vizier who destroys the sands of time controlled. Players keep progressing as they battle enemies and master the art of parkour. Yuri Lowenthal returns as the prince’s spokesman and will embody him for the first time through motion capture. In addition, players will meet actress Supinder Wraich, who now plays the role of Farah.
