Thanks to an interview with Ubisoft on IGN, we now know that it seems like Prince of Persia fans will be getting some extra content hopping their way in the very near future with the recently announced Epilogue DLC.
The DLC will be available for both Xbox 360 and PS3 and will not require the player to have finished the game in order to access it. A new area called the Underground Palace has been added to the world as well as some new abilities and powers for the characters.
When questioned about the role that user feedback had to play on the decisions made in the DLC, Ubisoft’s Jamal Rguigui had the following to say:
“Expect everything to be at a higher pace and to keep you on the edge of your seat. Figuring out how to succeed passing this long acrobatic sequence mined with traps or how to defeat this boss before he regenerates his energy will definitely be more intense. What hardcore Prince of Persia gamers want is a challenge and some of them found the game too easy. We understand this. Seeing such feedback, our vision and intentions with the DLC coincided with their comments quite well. We wanted to build a challenge and experience even greater with all the tools at our disposal, and let me say that there are a lot: Elika’s power, traps, combat system, etc.”
So, unless you missed it, the DLC will be a lot tougher as well, so those of you who found the main quest too easy may like what’s coming. No pricing has been announced, but we do know that the DLC is scheduled to become available on February 26.
