Prince Of Persia: The Forgotten Sands Announced

Publisher Ubisoft announced the development of a brand new Prince of Persia game and to answer the question that's most certainly on your mind, no it's not a sequel to last year's PoP game. The new game is called Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands and it represents a continuation of the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time series.

Ubisoft points out that the game is going to feature "many of the fan-favorite elements" and "new gameplay innovations that gamers have come to expect from the Prince of Persia brand."

The project was described as being the sort of game that appeals to both hardcore and casual gamers. "The goal is to reach both audiences, the core and casual gamers. It will be a game that will have lots of combat, with the possibility for gamers that are not as good - a level for beginners. In that sense we are trying to cover both groups," said Ubi's CEO Yves Guillemot recently.

Evidently the game's storyline is intended to coincide with the release of Disney's feature film Prince of Persia.

The premiere trailer for this game is expected to appear on Spike TV's Video Game Awards on Saturday, December 12, 2009 at 8 p.m. EST (oh great, that really makes me a happy man indeed). Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands is scheduled for release on consoles and handhelds in May 2010.

Very Nice, I like how they're coupling it with a movie release. It's like releasing the worlds largest launch trailer. This is good news, as fun as the last spin-off one was, a new Sands of Time game is definitely due.

I hope Sands in the Vagina stays a console exclusive.

This is so retarded.
I bet this new pop will be a game based on a movie based on that same game.
If god would be fair, Ubi would bankrupt due to investing too much money in anti-piracy measures. For those of you who have question wtf this has to with pop game i have an answer. It has nothing to do with it, I just don't like Ubi.
When they release BG&E 2 I will rethink my stature towards those french peckers.

PoP was an exquisite artistic trilogy, everything after that is just financial investment.
  BmmB: Agreed!

PC version??

You know what I think?

I think the movie should be PC-only. In fact, every movie from now on should be PC-only.

Noooo, don't ruin Sands of Time, it's a trilogy, the story is completed and it should stay that way! So what if they're making a movie? It's a movie based on game, we don't need a game about a movie about a game (like they did with Street Fighter). Oh and stop sucking up to casual audience, those people are probably not even interested in PoP but Ubi will make game easier just in case someone finds it too hard to press few buttons and move mouse in the same time.

Speaking as a massive Prince of Persia fan (particularly of the SoT trilogy)...

I REALLY don't know how to feel about this.

But my gut feeling is ominous. The SoT trilogy should be left alone, and the new storyline introduced with the latest game should continue to be the new focus.

It's going to be interesting to see which studio makes this movie-associated PoP game... smart money's on it NOT being Ubisoft Montreal, I think. Ubisoft will get one of their lesser studios to develop the game.

And if that's the case, we'd all be wise not to expect too much. This reeks of being no more than a blatant movie tie-in cash-grab.

Oh and btw...

Ubisoft should have demanded that Hollywood cast someone of Middle Eastern ethnicity as the Prince for the movie. Jake Gyllenhaal is a good actor and I have nothing against him, but he's not anywhere close to Iranian (i.e. Persian).

If it helps i think Jake Gyllenhaal is 1/18 Cherokee

That's just going even farther in the wrong direction, unfortunately.

Actually, this guy seems perfect to be the Prince of Persia -

You know what? Everyone was buzzing about Vin Diesel becoming Agent 47 before Timothy Oliphant was cast for the role. Even before the movie came out during the trailers people were just not quite sure about him. Then, people went and saw the movie, and he fucking nailed it. Like, they couldn't have asked for a better man to play Agent 47. Honestly, it doesn't really matter what the man looks like, he can be easily made to look a bit Persian, and I believe if he can make us believe he is The Prince of Persia, despite being a WASP, then it only stands as greater testament to his acting skill.

I was in the same boat, until like for the seventh time I believe, someone I knew and respected came up to me and told me it was awesome. SO...I later went and rented the DVD and popped that bitch in and thoroughly enjoyed it. Decent.
