Game Setting and Storyline

The Rogue Prince of Persia transports players to a mythical version of Ctesiphon, the once-thriving heart of the Persian Empire. The city stands on the brink of annihilation, invaded by the ruthless hordes of the Huns, led by the wicked chief Nogai. Players must guide the Prince through vibrant biomes, utilizing his acrobatic talents to navigate procedurally generated levels, acquire and refine an arsenal of weapons, equip new trinkets, and gather allies to save the city.

Gameplay Mechanics

The game’s platforming challenges are enhanced by the Prince’s signature wall run, allowing for seamless traversal over gaps, avoiding traps, and outmaneuvering enemies. Combat is intense, with foes ranging from Huns armed with dark shamanic magic to beasts tainted by nefarious power.

Soundtrack

An original soundtrack produced and composed by ASADI, a Persian-American Electronic Music Producer and Performance Artist, plays a major role in immersing players in a modern and epic vision of Persian folklore. The Rogue Prince of Persia’s Original Soundtrack fuses traditional and modern sonorities, supporting the moves and flow of the Prince. The soundtrack will be available on May 31st on Ubisoft Music and all streaming platforms and can be pre-saved now via this link.
