This is some real monkey paw wish fulfilment here.
For Honor x Prince of Persia

Fans who have been begging for a new Prince of Persia experience are about to get their desires fulfilled. Only this may not be exactly what fans had in mind when they made that wish on a monkey paw. Ubisoft announce today that the Prince of Persia will be returning... as a medieval fighter in For Honor. Not only will the Prince be included in For Honor, but he will be added only for a special limited time event. The good news here is that the event starts today, March 12.

The "Blades of Persia" event runs from now through to April 2. This time-limited event is out alongside a new update for For Honor that includes revamped menus and new cosmetic loot. Though the event is being called "Blades of Persia" the actual in-game mode is called "Ruler of Time." This mode takes placers to a slightly redesigned Harbor map for a "sand creature-infested Dominion match." Every so often the Prince will step out of a tornado of sand and begin hunting and attacking players.

The Prince will make use of unique powers that have been granted to him from the Dagger of Time. The Prince doesn't care which side you fight for. He is an equal opportunity kind of guy that will wreck you no matter which side you're on. After the first week of the event, the Ruler of Time mode undergoes a transformation. The Harbor map will change once again and the Prince becomes the Dark Prince. Ubisoft is remaining super coy about what this actually means as far as gameplay changes in the event are concerned. Ubisoft says that they will reveal what gameplay changes arrive in this next chapter closer to March 19th. It's only a week away, so you really don't have long to wait at any rate.

Blades of Persia also adds a substantial 26 new weapons that you can loot up through April 2. There is also a free Event Pass that allows players to earn 30 tiers of gear and loot. This includes a new battle outfit, emblem outline, ornaments, and a Sand Mood effect. There are also two optional cosmetic purchases that players can make. These purchases are for the Ratash or the Sandwraith outfits. You can also optionally purchase a new execution move that is used by the Prince and the Dark Prince in combat.

The last actual Prince of Persia game from Ubisoft was actually released as recently as 2018. Except that the 2018 release was for Prince of Persia: Escape, a mobile "runner" style game that came out for Android and iOS. If we're talking strictly "proper" Prince of Persia releases, then you have to go all the way back to 2010's release of Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands. The Forgotten Sands release coincided with the release of the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time film. Honestly, the less said about both of these releases, the better off we'll all be.
