The game is set in ancient Persia, although the exact century is not revealed. In the game, the player assumes the role of the Prince, whose name is not revealed in the game. The Prince is accompanied by a woman named Elika, whom he met after a large sandstorm diverted him from his course and he ended up in a mysterious land. Players traverse many different environments using the Prince's acrobatic abilities to scale walls and even crawl on the ceilings. Throughout the journey, players combat various enemies as they attempt to cleanse the land of corruption. The game's storyline and setting borrow heavily from Zoroastrianism. It is also considered a "reboot" for the Prince of Persia franchise, and has a separate storyline from the "Sands of Time" trilogy of the previous generation, along with a new cel-shaded art style unlike previous games in the series.

Will the Prince of Persia return?

~ Creator is working to get the series back ~

It is very interesting to think that the first Assassin's Creed game was basically a Prince of Persia game, because it did not take long before the assassins took the prince of days. In 2013, Ubisoft was therefore fed up with the question of whether we would all see more of the prince, and then replied that the series had been paused. They nevertheless gave us a little hope by saying that more developers were still working on ideas for how to reboot more series we have not seen for a while.

Now they obviously get a little startup. When the model and television host Chrissy Teigen went to Twitter to say she missed the Prince of Persia series, wondering where it became of the black first developer studio Ubisoft Montreal that the series is still in hibernate mode. Then it did not take long before the series maker, Jordan Mechner, decided to give a slightly more interesting comment: "Chrissy, I know of a few other people who think the same. We do our best to make it happen!"

He did not want to say exactly what that means, but it may sound as if he at least has taken an effort to revive the series. Do you hope this game series will return?


Yes, I do hope that it will return.

I had played the original Prince of Persia on my 1st PC several times; it was awesome.

I have also played (and still playing sometimes) the 2008 version which is great as well. I found its ending to be much more mature than what most modern games offer.

While I never played the 2D entries, the 3D ones were some of my favorite games from back then. I can see the similarities with AC but they are different enough for PoP to make a return.
