Official Trailer Revealed by Ubisoft and Evil Empire for ‘The Rogue Prince of Persia’

A new Prince of Persia rougelite game is on the way from Evil Empire and Ubisoft!

Today, during the Triple-I Initiative Livestream, Ubisoft & partnering studio Evil Empire announced The Rogue Prince of Persia, a 2D action-platforming roguelite game. The Rogue Prince of Persia will be released in Early Access on Steam on May 14, 2024.

The Rogue Prince of Persia is set in a fictional rendition of Ctesiphon, the capital of the Persian Empire. The city faces invasion by the Hun’s army of possessed soldiers, led by the malevolent Hun chief, Nogai. Players will embody the Prince, who was gifted with a mystical bola that resurrects him each time he dies. This magical artifact has let him take huge risks to perfect the skills of acrobatics & combat in his youth, molding him into a formidable warrior. In attempt after attempt, players must help the Prince explore different biomes, master new weapons, equip new trinkets, upgrade his gears at the Oasis and rally his allies to save the city from destruction.

See the reveal trailer below:

To master the platforming sections, players will have to use the iconic wall run, allowing them to easily cross gaps, avoid traps and outmaneuver enemies. From the aqueduct to the grand academy, by way of the wild gardens, the Prince must use all his acrobatic skills to safely find a route through procedurally generated levels made of a variety of colorful biomes, inspired by Persian architecture.

On top of all the environmental hazards players will have to deal with, they must fight through various enemies, both Huns wielding the dark shamanic magic and creatures corrupted by its influence. Plenty of weapon options are available, to suit all playstyles, from twin daggers to spears, broad swords, and axes. Secondary weapons open the combat even further, with a choice of shields, bows, grappling hooks and more! Using these in combination with the wall run, shoulder vault, kick and stomp makes the Prince a formidable warrior, and also makes each run completely unique.
