Prince of Persia Remake From India, Scott Pilgrim Re-Release, and More at Ubisoft Forward

Ubisoft had a slew of announcements to make at Thursday’s Ubisoft Forward, including a remake of 2003’s Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, the return of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game, and a free next-gen upgrade for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege. Additionally, it revealed three new IPs that will be released between October and February 2021: a VR space exploration game called AGOS, a Greek mythology epic from the makers of Assassin’s Creed Odyssey, and an extreme sports multiplayer playground set in the American national parks. And lastly, we got more details on the upcoming Watch Dogs: Legion and Just Dance 2021. Here’s everything you need to know.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Remake

Release date: January 21, 2021

Ubisoft Pune and Ubisoft Mumbai are working on this remake of the 2003 original, which Ubisoft claims is its “first ever full-scale remake”, developed with the Anvil game engine. It will allegedly have a “fresh approach” to combat, puzzles, and the game’s central feature: time rewind. You will get to witness cinematic sequences made from the ground up and play from new camera angles.

And it has the first Prince of Persia game from 1989 hidden inside it, which you’ll be able to unlock during your journey. Some things stay the same: Yuri Lowenthal is the voice and actor for the titular Prince. He is joined by Supinder Wraich, who plays Princess Farah.

In celebration of its 10th anniversary, Ubisoft is bringing back the beloved 2D arcade-style beat ’em up game that was inspired by both the graphic novel and the Edgar Wright movie. Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O’Malley delivered the retro cut-scenes for the game, with Paul Robertson working on the 8-bit animation, and Anamanaguchi as the composer.

It will also include access to the Knives Chau and Wallace Wells downloadable content (DLC). Scott Pilgrim vs. The World: The Game – Complete Edition will allow you to play co-op with three friends locally or online.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege free upgrade

Release date: 2020
Platforms: PS5, Xbox Series X and S

Rainbow Six Siege is turning into one of the few truly cross-gen games as it arrives on PS5 and the Xbox Series family in 4K or up to 120fps later in 2020. Not only will your existing progress and in-game content cross over if you upgrade to next-gen consoles, you will also be able to play across devices within the same umbrella. That means PS4 and PS5 owners can play together, as can those on Xbox One and Xbox Series X or Series S.

And better yet, Rainbow Six Siege is free on PS5 and Xbox Series family for those who already own it. Fro those that don’t own it, it will still cost as much on next-gen consoles as it does now on PS4 and Xbox One. If you’ve been meaning to pick it up, it’s currently on sale at Rs. 599 on PlayStation and Microsoft Store.
