For those of you who gave the big 'WTF?' to the ending of Prince of Persia there will be an Epilogue available for download on the X360 and PS3 on Feb. 26. No word on pricing yet.
"The DLC will develop the relationship between the Prince and Elika following the end of the game and will give additional narrative elements. Also, players will discover the immense and once glorious Underground Palace which is now corrupted and where danger awaits every corner." according to Associate Producer Jamal Rguigui, via IGN.
Most interesting to me are the elements that they've added which, I think, will make the game feel more like a Prince of Persia game from the first trilogy.
The first of these is Elika's new power, "Energize," which temporarily makes previously destroyed areas accessible. This has an obvious relation to the all of the time-shifting that went on in the first trilogy.
Second is the "Sprinting Clash," attack whereby the prince can surprise enemies. This not only brings some much needed additional fighting to the game, but is reminiscent of speed kills that made the first trilogy able to be played almost in a "Splinter Cell" stealth manner...which I loved.
Finally, the enemies are tougher and the traps are more complicated, meaning that you'll actually have to get good at the game to be successful.
I don't know about you, but it feels to me that this is the game they should have put out in the first place, instead of the watered-down, albeit pretty, game they did put out.
