Remember when we reported last month that Ubisoft has started a new Prince of Persia Twitter account and we assumed it was for a new game announcement? Apparently, the first thing it’ll promote is Prince of Persia Dagger of Time.
Before anyone gets excited, this isn’t a new video game, but rather, a new Virtual Reality Escape Game. Check the trailer out to get your hopes up, and then have Ubisoft smash it to pieces:
Here’s what Prince of Persia Dagger of Time is per Ubisoft:
Prince of Persia: The Dagger Of Time is a Virtual Reality Escape Game set in the world of Prince of Persia which enables you to experience time control. You will be able to experience something impossible in real life: to slow, stop or even rewind time!
The Dagger of Time takes place in the setting of the Prince of Persia Trilogy (Sands of Time, Warrior Within, The Two Thrones). Players are summoned to the Fortress of Time by Kaileena to stop an evil Magi. Kaileena restores and gives the Dagger of Time to the players so they can reach the Hourglass Chamber and use it to stop the Magi.*
Ubisoft adds that players do “not need to have played any of the previous Prince of Persia games in order to enjoy The Dagger Of Time.”
Hopefully, this means we’re close to a new Prince of Persia game being announced soon.
