Prince of Persia: The Dagger Of Time is a Virtual Reality Escape Game set in the world of Prince of Persia which enables you to experience time control. You will be able to experience something impossible in real life: to slow, stop or even rewind time!
The Dagger of Time takes place in the setting of the Prince of Persia Trilogy (Sands of Time, Warrior Within, The Two Thrones). Players are summoned to the Fortress of Time by Kaileena to stop an evil Magi. Kaileena restores and gives the Dagger of Time to the players so they can reach the Hourglass Chamber and use it to stop the Magi.*
TDOT is an experience built around cooperation between players of all ages to achieve a shared goal. Collaboration is essential: you cannot succeed without your teammates. Being able to listen and communicate effectively is absolutely key to success.
In the game, two, three or four players team up to find a way out of a reimagined Fortress of Time. To succeed, they need to work together and solve puzzles. The puzzles will require players to interact with objects in their vicinity, climb, and use certain powers, such as the time control.
* You do not need to have played any of the previous Prince of Persia games in order to enjoy The Dagger Of Time.
This isn’t the new Prince of Persia game you were hoping for, but at least Ubisoft is still dreaming up new adventures in this popular universe. Prince of Persia: The Dagger of Time is a virtual reality escape room designed for teams of up to four players. Developer Ubisoft Düsseldorf hopes to have this Sands of Time-based experience out in the wild this spring.
Your goal as a team is to escape the Fortress of Time wielding the magical dagger of note to solve puzzles, some requiring you to rewind time, others pushing you to speed it up, and you may event need to stop it completely. You’ll also need to keep an eye on Kaileena, the Empress of Time, and her army of sand monsters. Using room-scale VR, you’ll need your team to move around the room to explore and solve puzzles.
Developer Ubisoft Düsseldorf is no stranger to VR escape rooms, having already made two others: Assassin’s Creed: Medusa’s Gate and Assassin’s Creed: Escape the Lost Pyramid
