A rogue prince reluctantly joins forces with a mysterious princess and together, they race against dark forces to safeguard an ancient dagger capable of releasing the Sands of Time, which can reverse time and allow its possessor to rule the world.

Originally released in 2003, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time redefined action adventure gaming with its innovative gameplay, compelling story and lovable characters. Rewinding time once again, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake has been developed from the ground up with the Anvil game engine.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is Ubisoft’s first ever full-scale remake, with a fresh approach to combat, puzzle solving and rewinding time. The new design, made with updated technology for today’s gaming systems, include new camera angles and fully remade sequences. Additionally, players will get to see a beautiful and fully reimagined ninth-century Persia through the eyes of the developers in Pune and Mumbai.

Relive the Prince’s journey for redemption after unwittingly releasing the Sands of Time on the Sultan’s Kingdom. As with the original, players will embody the heroic Prince alongside the daughter of the Maharaja, Princess Farah, as they navigate the palace, battle sword-wielding enemies, maneuver trap-filled rooms and ultimately confront the evil Vizier, who controls the Sands of Time. Players continue to progress as they combat enemies and master the art of parkour. Yuri Lowenthal returns, reprising his role as the Prince’s original voice and motion capture actor and players will be introduced to actress Supinder Wraich, who now plays the role of Farah.

Originally scheduled for January 21, 2021, then postponed until March 18, 2021, delayed until further notice, Ubisoft is now planning to release Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake in 2022/2023, but with the current development team switch, according to the lasted Ubisoft statement it anybody's guess, especially now that retailer started delisting/canceling pre-orders.

During its Ubisoft Forward showcase, Ubisoft revealed that Prince Of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake is scheduled for 2026.
The remake of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time confirmed the targeted year of release, through a poetic vision of a flame reignited.
In 2026, players will get to reconnect with their beloved Prince, in an adventure rebuilt from the ground up, which captures the magic of the original game. The game successfully completed its pre-production phase and is now entering full production, with Ubisoft Toronto, Ubisoft Bucharest, Ubisoft Pune and E-Studio joining forces with Ubisoft Montréal.

Players who pre-order the game will have access to the Back to the Origins set, which includes:

  • The Original Prince outfit from the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
  • The Prince’s Original Weapons set
  • A Classic Filter that changes the look and feel of the game on the screen, just as if players were playing the game back in time
