I always like receiving these press releases as it means the game is virtually assured of not being delayed.
Prince of Persia is expected to land on our retail shelves on the 5th of December (12th for PC) and by all expectations it is going to be making a late run for the Game of the Year title or at least being a real contender for game of the series.
If I wasn’t eternally cursed with picking the wrong games I would be more excited about this game, but I know better than that.
The full un-entertaining release is after the jump

About Prince of Persia
Set in a land rooted in ancient Persian mythology, the Prince finds himself caught in an epic battle between the primal forces of light and darkness: the God of Light, Ormazd versus his brother Ahriman, the destructive God of Darkness. The Prince arrives just in time to witness the destruction of the legendary Tree of Life – an act which threatens to plunge the entire world into eternal darkness. Manifested in the form of the Corruption, a dark substance that physically contaminates the land and the skies, the Prince must partner with Elika, a deadly companion, to heal the world from the evil Corruption.Â
