The rumors look like they were true and we are officially getting a Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time Remake for the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC on January 21st. Sure, it was being talked about that Ubisoft was working on a remaster instead, but it looks like it will be a full remake of the game instead. Something that could be good given how long-ago Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time came out but a hefty task to undertake to get it right. At least when you compare it to all of the other remakes we have been getting as of late. It is good we have some alpha game footage to look at and see how the team is going with it.
Sadly, at least for me, it looks like this version of Prince Of Persia is not going to be the same level of remake we have seen from others. It is much better visually than we saw back in 2003, but it does not feel like it is where it could be with the modern and next-gen systems it will be on. It lands more on the remaster level even though they are taking time to motion capture more and revamp a few of the gameplay systems to better fit. This is just an announcement for this version of Prince Of Persia and there is still some time for the models and textures to be upgraded, but I have a feeling this is what we will see. If the gameplay is just as solid as the first time around, I will take it though.
