Ubisoft is taking its acclaimed Prince of Persia series back to its Sands of Time roots with Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands, while introducing some major gameplay changes along the way. X-Play spoke with producer Michael McIntyre who explained that one of the biggest new additions fans can expect is the revamped combat system.
“I think what will mostly be new is things like the combat’s going to be up to 40 or 50 enemies at one time. The combat is going to feel very different, I think, from previous Prince of Persia’s. Like, you’ve got this many enemies, so the prince had to have abilities in order to suit fighting overwhelming odds. So it’s a combat system that has a lot of action and flow to it.”
