Ubisoft has announced a new Prince of Persia game.
Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is a side-scrolling 2.5D adventure, providing a similar viewpoint to the original game.
In a new tweet, Ubisoft described the game as “an action-adventure platformer game set in a mythological Persian world.”
Ubisoft’s promotional blurb for the game reads: “In this brand-new adventure, players will embody Sargon, a young, gifted warrior, and member of an elite group called The Immortals. As they are sent to rescue Prince Ghassan, they will explore Mount Qaf, a once wondrous place, now cursed and hostile.
“Sargon and his brothers-in-arms will soon discover that time itself will be a treacherous foe and that the world balance must be restored.
“Inspired by the Metroidvania structure, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown lets players explore a handcrafted world at their own pace. From the majestic Citadel of Knowledge to the colorful landscapes of the Hyrcanian Forest, players will discover a variety of environments inspired by Persian mythology.
“By acquiring new time powers, unlocking unique abilities, and combining them in combat, Sargon will progressively delve deeper into Mount Qaf, solving puzzles, finding secrets, and completing exciting side quests.
“In this epic journey, Sargon will fight his way through mythical enemies, larger-than-life bosses, and vicious traps. By combining combat and platforming skills, players will defeat time-corrupted creatures such as Jahandar, the dreadful Manticore, guardian of the Citadel.
“Players will be able to express their creativity in a deep and engaging combat system to trigger devastating combos.”
