Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands

Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands Achievements

Got Walkthrough?

Find and break every sarcophagus.    
There are a total of 21 sarcophagus collectibles you must break. To break them, hold for a charged slash, and let go. Watch the video below for all locations, or refer to the walkthrough HERE. My video will not name the areas, as reading the locations normally confused me. I would not notice what area I was in and be worried I went past one without collecting. To use the video, study the area the Prince is in. Once you get to the area, unpause it and grab the sarcophagus. You may want to note, that collectible 16 is only a picture. I accidentally deleted that video! From that point in the picture when you head right, all you have to do is slide down the obvious banner leading down, and you'll get it. It's right after grabbing number 15. You cannot replay levels, so if you miss one you will have to play the entire game again!

Some people "have reported" this achievement as glitchy. Not true. In these cases, some have died and reloaded to a point before some of the sarcophagi and just... overlooked them again afterward. Just be weary. Make sure the game autosaves after you break them.

If you missed some and are starting a new game to go back for them, you don't have to get every single one again, only the one(s) you missed. :) Makes it go by a lot faster too. Your upgrades also carry over into your new game.

It should be noted that you can get hit whilst having the earth shield up as long as you dont take any damage. I got hit by swipe whilst earth shield was active, taking no damage from the blows, and still got the invincible achievement. Also my achievement unlocked prior to the credits.

Be careful not to miss any sarcophagi, because if you miss the last one you'll have to play the entire game over again. Be sure the game autosaves after each sarcophagus too.

Does the sacrophagus has a purpose in the game or is it just regular collecibles?

This is really annoying. If you accidentally miss one and swing one bit too far, you can hit a checkpoint and lose going back to the last one. A bit of a bad design, make sure you are VERY VERY careful doing this achievement, I'll have to do the game again just to get ONE thanks to this checkpoint system -.-

Just finished this. You don't have to break them all in one play through. You just need to break them all. On my second play through I got the cheevo while in the reservoir because I had gotten the last couple in my first play through.
