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


A 'full-scale remake' from Ubisoft Mumbai and Pune

It's nice to have an honest-to-goodness Prince of Persia adventure again, even if it is a retread.

After a couple of leaks, Ubisoft formally announced Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake for PC, PS4, and Xbox One during today's Ubisoft Forward stream. It's launching January 21, 2021 for $39.99. A few bonuses – an "original" outfit and weapons set, and a Classic Filter – are reserved for pre-orders.

Voice actor Yuri Lowenthal is back as the Prince himself, and the studio has enhanced "everything in the game from camera to combat, as well as the visuals," according to director Pierre-Sylvain Gires.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake was made "from the ground up" in the Anvil engine.

Sands of Time is a stone-cold classic, so let's do this thing (assuming the final build looks less... rough). The semi-budget price is a good starting point. I'll probably wait to see the tech tests, though.
