Prince of Persia
Prince of Persia DLC Slips a Week
Written By
View author's profile

It appears that Prince of Persia is the latest retail game to be a victim of the DLC delay bug and it now joins titles like Fable 2, Mirror's Edge, Fallout 3 and Tomb Raider, who've all seen their downloadable content packs pushed back.

Ubisoft today confirmed that the Epilogue, originally expected to ship tomorrow, the 26th, will now be available for download on March 5th; literally a week later.

From a personal standpoint, with Halo Wars & Killzone 2 out this week, it may be a blessing in disguise. No point crying over spilt milk right? *wipes tear*

Maybe a good news, I was wondering I will have more time to get familiar with SF IV, before breaking PoP DLC in less than 2hours (achievement)

@1 How on earth can they force you to play again? If you didn't like it, just don't get the DLC and save $5. No sense getting angry at Ubisoft for putting out content you don't want.

This was supposed to be my B-Day present, along with Puzzle Quest: Galactrix (my B-Day is tomorrow). But both things got held back. Geez, someone hates me. :P

it annoys me that to see the real ending you have to buy it for extra after the game has been out for months. Usually i am more that happy to see new dlc that expands on games.

#9: I disagree that it's the real ending. This DLC is, to me, the start and end of a new chapter in the new saga. Granted, it's a shorter chapter, but it's exactly the same way that the Two Towers continued on from Fellowship of the Ring. We've had the ending to the previous chapter, and the previous game; now we start a new one.

Maybe everyone of these developers should set their DLC release date two weeks later than expected cause that seems to be the usual trend.

I agree with 12 its rediculous what the game companies release as DLC these days but we all feel we won't be getting the full story if we don't play it. The only exception was for GTA IV which was a proper expansion on the game rather than the story.

Is there really anyone here that didn't see this coming? It's Ubisoft, it'll probably be delayed a few more times and we wont see it until July.
Ubi fails to meet any deadline they set. We STILL haven't seen a patch for Far Cry 2 yet and that came out in what? October?

@#11 The Lord of the Rings was written as one novel but due to financial reasons it had to be split into three volumes. So really that isn't the best comparison for your argument since, it's really like charging extra so you can get the middle part of a book... then get charged once more to get the concluding third.

but what if they bring out a sequel to this where the story follows on from the dlc so that it turns out people who bought it did not get to see what truely happend.
it would be better if it was a standalone bit similiar to gta or an extra chapter set during the events of the game.

I hear ya. The fact that it takes MS 2 weeks to certify DLC means Ubi knew about the delay a week ago and are just telling us really gets me.

DLC that 'fixes' the ending and attempts to alter the game engine. I will give Ubisoft credit for taking a shot at making the game harder. Hope it works out.

The ending for Prince of Persia was a mess.

I've never really played a game that made me do something I didn't want to do. The entire game was a waste thanks to the ending.

Better be 800 points. no interest otherwise.

Even for 800 points I doubt it will be worth it. In the full game it was possible to clear out an entire area and get all light seeds in that area within an hour.
The DLC is only 1 new area right?
That means about an hour of play time.
So my question now is: Is 1/6th the price of the full game worth it to get 1/24th the content?

Sorry for the double post/comment:
On second thought, it's probably about 30 minutes to do each area completely in the full game.

The delay is rather irritating as I was realy looking forward to seeing the true ending to the game. However if I must wait another week then so be it, the ending and the achievements just better be worth the wait! :)

Also agree with #37 games that only give you 100 GS for paying 800 MSP are just BS! If they are only going to give you 100 GS then they should only cost 400 MSP like the DLC for lost odyssey.

Meh, I'm not going to rush and download this. This PoP sucked. The pathetic Americanized Prince isn't fit to lick Sands of Time Prince's boots. The girl was cool...but also too Americanized. It's supposed to be Prince Of Persia. Not Prince Of Bayonne.

How much GS is the DLC going to have? I thought it was only 100.

The thing with DLC is that it will still be available weeks and months later so for me there is no rush to buy this.

Also as I haven't even finished the main game there is no point

I've heard a rumor that the DLC may be a mere 400 points. I really doubt the rumor, but I'm still hoping for it. This delay doesn't bother me, as I haven't finished the story yet. Plus, with Lost and Damned and SFIV, I'm fairly busy in my gaming world.
