Prince of Persia DLC

The new epilogue DLC for Prince of Persia will be available on February 26th, for the PS3 and Xbox 360. It will add some new powers, and include a new boss the shapeshifter. Check out the full article with all the details below.

 

Cel-shaded scurrying news now, with Ubisoft announcing a downloadable extension to its latestPrince of Persia game … Prince of Persia. Set directly after the events of the main narrative, the “Epilogue” DLC expands the acrobatic protagonist’s playground, as well as his magical companion’s repertoire of powers. Epilogue‘s associate producer, Jamal Rguigui, tells IGN that players can expect the new Underground Palace area “to keep you on the edge of your seat.” And even if you slide right off, we’re sure Elika will be there to grab you.

 
While careful not to spoil the game’s conclusion, Rguigui notes that Epilogue will further develop the relationship between the main characters and task them with defeating a new enemy, The Shapeshifter. “The Shapeshifter is an enemy that takes the form of two of Ahriman’s most fearsome Lieutenants, the Warrior and the Hunter,” he says. “Though their physical form is familiar to our heroes and the player, it will requires a particular strategy to defeat the Shapeshifter, rewarding the player that takes advantage of the new sprint feature exclusive to the Epilogue.”

In addition to the royal rogue’s sprinting offensive, the DLC gives Elika the “Energize” power, which allows her to temporarily restore a piece of destroyed environment. Tough-guy gamers will also be pleased to note that said environment will offer more challenging platforming sequences and additional traps to be almost-killed by. “We wanted to build a challenge and experience even greater with all the tools at our disposal, and let me say that there are a lot: Elika’s power, traps, combat system, etc.” 

Look for all of those etc. on PSN and Xbox Live on February 26th. We’ll update as soon Ubisoft settles on a price.

  • More and more I notice content being withheld from the final shipped copy to sell as DLC. Ship dates and weak sales are probably to blame. Almost makes you miss those constant delays in the 32 bit era – atleast we got a complete game then. Im probably wrong but its not completely unheard of in the current industry (tomb raider dlc)

    At least this DLC Pack will add some more playability, unlike some of the other DLC that has come out recently. I’m looking at you EA.
