Ubisoft have just announced some upcoming downloadable content for Prince Of Persia. The DLC, named “Epilogue”, will take place directly after the game’s shitty ending and will add to the story a little more.

This DLC will put The Prince and Elika in a new situation against a new enemy. The Shapeshifter (I wonder what his power is?) and will apparently strengthen the bond between the two characters.

The Shapeshifter will apparently take the forms of The Hunter and The Warrior but will require a new power, sprint, in order to defeat him. The DLC also gives Elika the “Energize” power, which will allow her to restore a piece of land temporarily. Ubisoft have said they wanted to “build a challenge and experience even greater with all the tools at our disposal, and let me say that there are a lot: Elika’s power, traps, combat system, etc.”

It seems like it could be cool, I still don’t like the idea of paying for ‘the real ending’ to the game. The DLC is set to hit both PS3 and 360 on February 26th, Ubisoft have not yet provided us with a price. Let’s hope it’s cheap-ish eh.

Ubisoft have announced that people who sign up at Ubisoft.com and register their copy of Prince Of Persia will get a free Altair costume to use within the game. It was also said that the ‘classic’ prince may be available in the future too. Pre-orderers (in the UK at least) can get the ‘classic Prince’ costume when they buy from Play.com. It’s definitely cool of Ubi to give away stuff they could easily sell as DLC. They’ve also done free DLC for EndWar which was available on the PlayStation Store for a week. They are being generous, aren’t they. For more information head to Ubisoft’s official website.

New Prince Of Persia Dated by Anthony Barlow

Ubisoft’s upcoming Prince Of Persia game has been dated. It’s surprising to hear that the game will make it out in December after it was missing from many of the summer trade shows. I personally thought the game might have been delayed, but i’m really excited to hear that it’s going to make it out before Christmas. The game has been dated for December 2nd in North America but there’s no word on a European release date as of yet. Hopefully we’ll get one soon.

I think this game might have been overlooked if it had come out in October or November, a wise decision by Ubisoft which gives the game a fighting chance. Count me in for this one.
