ONE Store Beta Now Available

Ubisoft and studio Evil Empire announced The Rogue Prince of Persia, a brand-new 2D action-platforming rogue-lite game, and it will release in Early Access this May.

Just last January, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown was released, and now, another entry into the series is coming. Though what’s interesting about this new game is that, as the “rogue” in its title implies, this game features rougelike elements which should offer an interesting twist to the series’ formula. On top of the gameplay, this game also features an intriguing art style.

While the rougelite elements are the key feature gameplay-wise, The Rogue will still feature signature elements of the series like the iconic wall run and various weapons.

As for it story, its premise is described as:

“The Rogue Prince of Persia is set in a fictional rendition of Ctesiphon, the capital of the Persian Empire. The city faces invasion by the Hun’s army of possessed soldiers, led by the malevolent Hun chief, Nogai. Players will embody the Prince, who was gifted with a mystical bola that resurrects him each time he dies. This magical artifact has let him take huge risks to perfect the skills of acrobatics & combat in his youth, molding him into a formidable warrior. Attempt after attempt, players must help the Prince explore different biomes, master new weapons, equip new trinkets, upgrade his gears at the Oasis and rally his allies to save the city from destruction.”

The Rogue Prince of Persia will be released on Steam Early Access on May 14, 2024.
