One of the most treasured gaming series ever has been on quite an extended break, but that’s set to end with the arrival of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake.
As the title indicates, it’s a modern update of the 2003 release The Sands of Time, which in itself was a reboot of the series that first entered the world in the late 1980s. It’s also Ubisoft’s first full-scale remake, being rebuilt from the ground up and featuring new camera angles and fully remade sequences.
A very, very cool bonus is that the original Prince of Persia from 1989 can be unlocked during the Prince’s journey.
If you haven’t had the pleasure, the Prince sets out on a quest for redemption after unwittingly releasing the Sands of Time on the Sultan’s Kingdom. Players guide the heroic Prince alongside the daughter of the Maharaja, Princess Farah, as they navigate the palace, battle sword-wielding enemies, manoeuvre trap-filled rooms and ultimately confront the evil Vizier, who controls the Sands of Time.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is set to release for PS4 and Xbox One on January 21, 2021. Pre-order now at JB Hi-Fi.
