The long-rumored Sands of Time remake was officially announced during Ubisoft’s own Ubi Forward digital showcase back in September of this year. The remake is being rebuilt from the ground up in the Anvil engine with completely rebuilt textures, contrasted lightings for strong atmospheres, and new cinematics. In addition, the remake will offer modernized combat mechanics.
Amidst the scorched sands of ancient Persia, there is a legend spun in an ancient tongue. It speaks of a time borne of blood and ruled by deceit. Drawn to the dark powers of a magic dagger, a young Prince is led to unleash a deadly evil upon a beautiful kingdom. Embark on a journey as the Prince to defeat the treacherous Vizier and return the Sands to the hourglass. Master the Sands of Time and use your dagger to control time itself. Fight cursed enemies and solve puzzles along the way.
