Ubisoft is resurrecting classic video game Prince of Persia as a virtual reality (VR) escape room. Prince of Persia: The Dagger of Time is launching in spring 2020.

The Dagger of Time is Ubisoft’s third VR escape room, following Beyond Medusa’s Gate and Escape the Lost Pyramid, which are both set in the world of Assassin’s Creed.

Prince of Persia: The Dagger of Time, developed by Ubisoft Düsseldorf, will debut at more than 300 locations internationally.

It is a team-based adventure set in the world of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Players will work together to solve puzzles and escape from a reimagined Fortress of Time.

“Controlling time in VR is a one-of-a-kind experience where players will feel the power of the dagger of time in their own hands,” said Cyril Voiron, executive producer for Ubisoft’s Escape Games.

“Time-control is only part of the immersion as we transport players to experience larger-than-life adventures in our games.”

Players are summoned by Kaileena, the ‘Empress of Time’, who they help put a stop to the evil plans of a Magi.

The Magi is attempting to restore the sands to the Hourglass of Time and create an army of Sand Monsters.

“After just two years in operation, we have now partnered with more than 300 locations around the globe,” said Benedikt Grindel, managing director of Ubisoft Düsseldorf.

“What started as a pilot project became one of the largest distribution networks in the location-based entertainment market, which makes us really proud,” he added.

In more VR news, VR World, the largest immersive mixed reality experience centre in North America, has reopened in its new flagship location in NYC.
