Following a series of leaks, Ubisoft confirmed it’s remaking Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time during its latest Ubisoft Forward presentation. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake releases on PS4, Xbox One, and PC on January 21, 2021. It’s already available to preorder, and you’ll get a few nostalgic bonuses by ordering early.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is being developed by Ubisoft’s Pune and Mumbai studios. While Ubisoft is keeping the foundation of the fan-favorite original, there will be numerous improvements besides just the much-improved graphics to make it more modern. For instance, Ubisoft has added a targeting system for combat and more acrobatic movement for the Prince. You’ll also be able to unlock the original 1992 version of Prince of Persia and play it from the main menu.
The classic franchise has remained dormant since 2008’s Prince of Persia reboot, but Ubisoft has chosen arguably the best game in the series to remake and perhaps inject newfound interest in the action-platforming series. It earned a 9/10 in our original Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time review published in 2003.
