First video of Prince of Persia Forgotten Sands

The first gameplay footage of the new Prince of Persia game has emerged and you can see it right here. Thankfully, after the glossy yet underwhelming departure from the formula of the last game, it's back to basics for our Prince.

Powered by the Assassin's Creed engine, the game will let you fight up to 50 enemies at once. The old controls are back too, as are iconic PoP moves like pole swings and wall-runs - not to mention some wow-inducing time manipulation. Wait until you see the frozen water effect...

    im going to assume this game is going to suck. Mainly because it looks like its made to be a movie tie in/cash in. and secondly because there going back to a complete trilogy that has no need for another game to be hastily shoved in between the first and the second game. it has the potential to make a great game but lets face it there probly gona just fuck it up.

    cell shading would make this return to the original story horrible. if it isn't broke don't fix it. i extremely disappointed with the last installment as well as borderlands when it changed to cell shading. it looks like a comic book if i wanted a comic book i would read one, not play an awesome game

    no sound for me either :(

    @farsided Better question is why would they make this cell shaded. This is afterall, a return to the Sands of Time storyline, gameplay, art style and graphical style.

    I'm kind of disappointed that they've dropped virtually all the the stylistic choices they made for the last game that made it look so beautiful. Would it have been so hard to keep the cell shading?

    I'm not getting any sound out of this vid.

    the return will be welcomed but i still liked the new prince of persia and hopefully the will work on a sequel for that one to once they have finished this
