Ubisoft first announced the Sands of Time Remake at its Ubisoft Forward event in September, confirming that it would use the Assassin’s Creed Anvil engine and would look back on actor Yuri Lowenthal as the prince.
In December, Ubisoft announced the remake pressure from January to March, citing the unpredictable development barriers in the face of COVID-19 and its impact on 2020, saying “However, 2020 has been a year like no other. Today we wanted to let you know that we take more time to work with the game … We think this is the right call to ensure we deliver a game you like. “With this latest delay, there is no new release date or window, but Ubisoft says it will keep players “up to date on progress.”IGN’s original Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time review called the game “a must-own – a classic that will soon be worthy of a permanent place in your collection.”
The remake is set to cost $ 39.99 and be available on PS4, Xbox One and PC via the Epic Games Store, the Ubisoft Store on Windows and UPlay +. And there are still no announced plans for PS5 or Xbox Series X versions of the game, but it can be played on the next-generation console via backward compatibility.
