Prince of Persia VR Escape Room Is Coming Soon!
The Prince of Persia game series has been a popular series among many gamers for years. Many gamers have awaited the release of a new game in the ever popular series for a long time. There is good news and bad news, it will probably not be available for play in your house, but there is a new Prince of Persia game coming to escape rooms.
Escape rooms have become ever popular tourist attractions and activities for families and friends to do together. The group is locked in a room for a certain period of time to see if they can get out utilizing the puzzles, hints and riddles in the escape room. Ubisoft has taken the idea of an escape room to the next level by implementing virtual reality with more challenging puzzles and stunning visuals offered.
The new Prince of Persia virtual reality, escape room game continues to be developed by Ubisoft and will be entitled The Dagger of Time. Ubisoft has ran with virtual reality games more than many other video game developer companies. The game will be played as an opportunity to have a virtual reality experience in an escape room. Two to four players can play the game at a time.
The Dagger of Time will require cooperative play in order to be successful in the game, and players of any age will enjoy the game play. It follows ideas behind the original Prince of Persia game that was released in 1989. The original game was designed and created by Jordan Mechner.
The universe of the virtual reality game will follow the Arabian feel of previous Prince of Persia games that were released in 2003. It will also be based on the setting that appeared in the Prince of Persia movie that was released in 2010. The specific setting will be ascending throughout the Fortress of Time. There will be traps along the way and puzzles to figure out to reach the top of the fortress.
The story behind the game is that players will be following Kaileena’s request for help. She is the Empress of Time at the Time Fortress. The villain in the game is the Magi.
The ultimate goal of the game is to stop the Magi. The Magi’s goal is to release Sand Monsters that you are sure to have to fight your way through as well. He also seeks to bring sands to the HourGlass of Time that is located within the Fortress of Time. In reaching the Magi, as aforementioned, you will have to change time through the powers of the Fortress of Time, go through and around traps and solve complex puzzles.
Players will feel more powerful than they feel in regular escape rooms or when playing regular video games as the power lies in their hands with a virtual reality experience. Anyone should be able to play this game, whether they have played the original Prince of Persia games or not. The game does not rely heavily on previous storylines, and the controls for playing are relatively easy to learn. Teamwork is required to beat the game and leave the escape room, as at least two players are required.
Ubisoft has released other escape room, virtual reality style games. The Prince of Persia game will actually be the third escape room style game it has released. These include Escape the Lost Pyramid and Beyond Medusa’s Gate that were developed by Ubisoft’s Blue Byte studio. These games were based on the Assassin’s Creed series rather than the Prince of Persia series.
The release of these escape rooms gives hope to gamers who have played the Prince of Persia games in the past. The series has not been completely forgotten by Ubisoft. There may be more Prince of Persia games, even those available for at home play, coming in the future.
This game is only being introduced in three hundred escape rooms initially throughout Europe and America. It will be available for play in the spring. Be sure to go with your family or friends to reach the top of the Fortress and defeat the Magi. This is one of the largest virtual reality distribution projects to date in the entertainment sector.
The newest Prince of Persia installment, The Dagger of Time, is sure to impress players of all ages and experiences with the Prince of Persia series. Getting out of the escape room will be a first hand experience through Ubisoft’s virtual reality development. It brings a whole other level to the escape room and video game sectors of enjoyment and entertainment. Defeat the Magi and help Kaileena in the newest installment of Ubisoft’s Prince of Persia series that is only found in three hundred escape rooms around the world. Find an escape room near you where you can experience this newest game yourself with the team you choose. Unfortunately, it may be hard to find an escape room that has the Prince of Persia VR game but you should still give escape rooms a try or even go the diy route.
