SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – MAY 28, 2024 – Today, Ubisoft & partnering studio Evil Empire announced that The Rogue Prince of Persia™, a 2D action-platforming rogue-lite game, is available worldwide in Early Access on Steam at the price of AU$29.95 with a 10% discount during the first 24 hours. The game is also available to play on GeForce Now service. At the start, The Rogue Prince of Persia Early Access will include 6 biomes, 8 main weapons and 6 powerful tools, 2 boss encounters, as well as 30 trinkets for endless combinations to suit all playstyles.

Leading up to its full 1.0 launch, players can expect more content to arrive: new levels, bosses, weapons, enemies, and upgrades, as well as additions based on community feedback.

“I am extremely excited to show The Rogue Prince of Persia to the players, and I’m really looking forward to the game becoming not just ours, but a project between us and the community!” says Lucie Dewagnier, Game Director at Evil Empire.

In The Rogue Prince of Persia, players will be transported to a mythical version of Ctesiphon, once the thriving heart of the Persian Empire. The Prince must act as this grand city stands on the brink of annihilation since its invasion by the ruthless hordes of the Huns, commanded by the wicked chief Nogai.

Journeying through vibrant biomes, the Prince must deploy his full range of acrobatic talents to navigate safely across the procedurally generated levels, acquire and refine an arsenal of weapons, equip new trinkets, unlock new equipment at the Oasis, and gather allies to stand a chance in saving the city. To master the game’s platforming challenges, players will get to use the signature wall run, for seamless traversal over gaps, avoiding traps and outmaneuvering enemies. But the environment will not be the only peril players will have to face, as they will engage in combat with a variety of foes: the Huns, armed with dark shamanic magic, and the beasts tainted by this nefarious power.

The game’s soundtrack also plays a major role to immerse players into a modern and epic vision of Persian folklore with an original soundtrack produced and composed by ASADI, a Persian-American Electronic Music Producer and Performance Artist. The Rogue Prince of Persia’s Original Soundtrack is a fusion between traditional and modern sonorities, with rhythms supporting the moves and flow of the Prince. The OST will be available on May 31  on Ubisoft Music, and all streaming platforms, and can be pre-saved now via this link: https://ubisoftmusic.ffm.to/therogueprinceofpersia-ost
