We knew it was coming, but now we have a better idea of what form the forthcoming Prince of Persia DLC will take. Speaking to IGN, Ben Mattes of Ubisoft Montreal said that the downloadable content will “feature new content such as a new area, new enemies, a new power and new fight moves. This is not at all a chunk of the game that was supposed to ship but that we didn’t finish in time – this is a significant DLC team that has taken all of the lessons they learned during the development of POP and all of the feedback we’ve read on boards and in reviews and are creating something really special.”
Mattes continues, “I think there is a huge opportunity with the DLC to expand on the universe we’ve started to create with this game — to dig deeper into the personality of the Prince and Elika and their relationship. Additionally with the DLC, we have the luxury of creating content that takes some of the negative feedback the game received into consideration. I, for one, can’t wait to play it.”
Do you hear that? That’s the sound of several TVGB editorial staff spontaneously combusting with joy.
