Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is out in January

Ubisoft has announced Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake will be released in January.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is coming to PC, PS4, and Xbox One on January 21, 2021.

The game was revealed today during Ubisoft Forward, after leaks already outed the game. This is the first remake coming from Ubisoft.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time’s main gimmick allows the player to rewind time while playing, undoing death by traps or platforming, as well as freezing enemies and moving objects. It was originally released in 2003 to critical acclaim and is regarded as the inspiration for the Assassin’s Creed series.

This remake has been rebuilt from the ground up using the Assassin’s Creed Origins engine, and features new mo-cap movement, a new in-game camera and rejigged combat. The new Sands of Time features the original voice actor Yuri Lowenthal alongside newcomer Supinder Wraich, who plays Princess Farah.

Just like the 2003 release, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time will also include the original Prince of Persia game, originally released in 1989. It's like one big history lesson in a game.

Here's a list of features:

  • A Classic Reborn – Experience the original epic tale of the Prince on his journey for redemption. Travel back in time with the return of the Prince’s original voice actor, Yuri Lowenthal, and discover a brave new Farah.
  • Reimagined for Today – Fight new enemy character models and enjoy entirely new cinematic sequences along with enhanced voices, sounds, parkour animations, and soundtrack.
  • Wield the Power of Time – Master the Sands of Time and use your dagger to reverse, accelerate, freeze, and slow time itself while solving puzzles along the way.
  • Breathtaking Graphical Updates – Immerse yourself in ancient Persia with more realistic graphics, pre-baked rendering, and VFX as you fight cursed enemies along your journey.
  • Modernized Controls – Camera, controls, and combat have been completely rebuilt and updated for today’s standards. Choose between original or modernized mapping.
  • Expand Your Experiences with Bonuses Unlock the original Prince of Persia game (1992 Mac version) along your adventure and access it from the Main Menu whenever you want. Even more surprises await.
