After much speculation and anticipation, Ubisoft has officially revealed The Rogue Prince of Persia, a thrilling 2D action platformer rogue-lite developed by Evil Empire, the studio behind the acclaimed Dead Cells. The game is set to debut on Steam Early Access on May 14th, promising an exciting new adventure for fans of the genre.


Players will assume the role of the Prince, who must rise to the challenge of defending Persia against a marauding Hun horde tainted by sinister shamanic sorcery. Armed with an array of weapons and artifacts, the Prince must adapt his arsenal to suit different playstyles, encounter intriguing characters, and traverse diverse landscapes. Featuring classic platforming mechanics, players can expect intense acrobatic combat, strategic evasion tactics, and interactive environmental hazards.

From wall-running to accessing hidden crevices, the Prince can utilize secondary tools like bows, shields, and grappling hooks to overcome obstacles and engage adversaries. By collecting medallions, players can unlock additional trials and enhance the difficulty for a more exhilarating experience. The game's procedurally generated levels ensure a unique playthrough with each session.

Similar to Dead Cells, The Rogue Prince of Persia will receive regular updates during its early access phase, introducing fresh foes, challenging bosses, weapon variants, additional stages, and expanded narrative arcs. Fans can anticipate more information on the game's development and upcoming content in the weeks ahead.

Prepare to embark on a gripping journey through ancient Persia and experience the Prince's epic quest to thwart the forces of darkness in The Rogue Prince of Persia. Mark your calendars for May 14th and immerse yourself in a world filled with danger, discovery, and daring exploits!
