It was an unfortunate journey for them Prince of Persia Remake until here. What should undoubtedly be a big highlight of the second Ubisoft Forward event last week was published before the show and was immediately criticized for what the screenshots of the game looked like. Expectations have skyrocketed thanks to other new remakes like Resident Evil 2 that are pampering fans. Thankfully, things seem to be getting better as Ubisoft revealed newer images that look a lot better.

In fact, the engine is simply used as a base, with the technical and artistic direction being completely redesigned to better suit that Prince of Persia Sands of Time Remake. Part of it involves a brand new approach to lighting and color saturation, which wasn’t immediately apparent in the reveal trailer. However, new screenshots show a brand new build of the game that won’t show up during the event. The characters look much more detailed and no longer look like wax statues. The colors are more vivid, the shadows are darker, and the faces are sharper.
One element that has been overlooked by many fans is that the reveal trailer and gameplay snippets were on an alpha build of the game. The remake comes from Ubisoft India Studios, a collaboration between Mumbai and Pune, studios that each worked on the title for years. Unfortunately, the COVID pandemic slowed development dramatically as developers were forced to continue working from home, resulting in an announcement that was less elaborate than Ubisoft would have liked. However, in a few months, things will improve significantly, although first impressions of a game are sometimes hard to shake, especially if they are negative.
While the graphics debate continues, many fans are just happy that Ubisoft is bringing the long silence Prince of Persia Franchise back. Last seen as a link to the film, the series has since been left behind, giving way to more open worlds and live-service-style experiences. There is growing hope that this remake could potentially signal the beginning of a proper return for the beloved franchise.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is expected to be released on January 21, 2021 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
