The Rogue Prince of Persia: Evil Empire is Looking for Alpha Testers

So this game takes an even more different approach than the rest of the Prince of Persia franchise, although it should be added that this game is not being made in-house by Ubisoft, but by the developers at Dead Cells…


We also knew that The Rogue Prince of Persia would be released in Early Access on Steam in May. You’d think that with the last month of spring not so far away, the French studio would be focusing all their efforts on getting the game off to a good start, but you’d be wrong. You can sign up for the roguelite alpha test on the game’s website (see second link below), so those who successfully apply will get early access to the game (Devolver Digital joked about this at E3… but it’s no longer a joke!).

Ubisoft announced the game this week; here’s how we summed it up: “Experience fast-paced, challenging, yet accessible roguelite as you master acrobatic moves and seamlessly transition between platforming and combat. Find new weapons, add special effects to trinkets, and upgrade them to create your own builds. Discover new characters, information, and areas as you try to find a way to save Persia from a Hun invasion and become the hero you always wanted to be. Lead the Prince in his battle against a Hun army corrupted by dark shamanic magic and find your place in the royal family as you explore a vibrant reimagining of Persia. Piece together the puzzle and discover new areas as you rejoin the battle and meet a cast of colorful characters through non-linear story progression.

Move seamlessly between platforming and combat, using your acrobatic moves to outmaneuver and outsmart your enemies. Use the iconic wall-run to open up new attack routes, avoid traps and explore hard-to-reach areas. Kick and dodge to take on groups of enemies when the odds are against you. Choose from a variety of deadly weapons and equip new medallions each run to unleash devastating effects, giving you the freedom to change your fighting style at will. Secondary weapons offer even more options, from bows to shields to grappling hooks. Change your loadout on the fly to adapt to new challenges. Unlock new weapons and medallions, and learn from your mistakes to become more powerful with each death. New challenges await you every time, as each level is procedurally generated, so no two runs are ever the same.”

The Rogue Prince of Persia will be available in Early Access on Steam on May 14th.
