It was one of the most artistically impressive games of 2008, and one of PSXE's personal favorites (despite a few irritating hiccups). Therefore, we're quite happy to learn about the first set of downloadable content for Ubisoft's stellar Prince of Persia .
According to GameSpot, the new content is called "Prince of Persia Epilogue" and is set to release on February 26. If you're a fan of the game, you'll love the idea of "over 3 hours" of additional gameplay, as you'll be able to explore a huge new underground palace area. Perhaps best of all, we'll get a few new techniques for the already-agile Prince; the first of which is the "Energize" skill, and it'll let players "temporarily rebuild destroyed objects in the environment to provide a clear path." Doesn't this sound a lot like the good ol' rewind-time feature? The second ability is called "Sprinting Clash," which adds a new move to the Prince's combat ability. Just for good measure, Ubisoft will be tossing in a few unlockable skins for both the Prince and Elika, and these will be let us see how the characters looked "during the prototype phase of the game's development." In the future, we could always use a sexy costume for Elika, who's definitely a raging cutie. Just a thought, guys.
Oh, and if you're wondering, you do not have to have completed the game in order to play this new content. Of course, you'll only be able to use that new power in the new area that's designed for it, but you can still download and open that new content even before finishing the main quest.
