Ubisoft made the announcement yesterday during its Ubisoft Forward presentation. The new game will be released on January 21st. And this is a full remake, not just a remaster – it looks like everything has been redesigned from the ground up, after the battle, level design, and story of the original game, but otherwise including all of the new elements. It’ll be available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC, without saying a word about next-gen consoles.
The original Sands of time was the second 3D reincarnation of Prince of Persia, after a lackluster attempt on PC / Dreamcast. It is considered a classic, time-consuming gameplay that blends in with both precarious platforms and innovative hand-to-hand combat with multiple enemies. The story was unusually good for the time too, with critics and gamers praising the expressive prince-hero and dynamic love interest Farah. Later entries in the series never achieved the same level of recognition, and the last time a 3D game was released in the series was in 2010.
All of the game’s visual elements have been improved both technically and artistically, but those who want to see the original costumes and weapons (and a bit of cartoony) will need to pre-order the game.
