It will launch this Spring at over 300 locations around the world and sees the player solve puzzles to escape the Fortress of Time. The VR experience promised by the transalpine gaming giant will be based on the already available escape room activities of Beyond Medusa's Gate and Escape the Lost Pyramidboth set in the Assassin's Creed universe.

The Executive Producer of this game, Cyril Voiron, says that "We made a decision to push the level of quality and complexity of our experiences to another level in Prince of Persia: The Dagger of Time".

Ubisoft has announced Prince of Persia: The Dagger of Time, a four-player VR escape room game.

What do you get when you combine Ubisoft, escape rooms, and VR?

"Our VR escape rooms are meant to be larger-than-life adventures; something you can't do in the real world, something you can totally immerse yourself into once you put on the VR headset". Price of Persia will have a unique mechanic though, with the Dagger of Time being able to bend and shape reality to create a "one of a kind" experience. Kaileena restores and gives the Dagger of Time to the players so they can reach the Hourglass Chamber and use it to stop the Magi.

Based on The Sands of Time trilogy, the narrative involves players being summoned to the Fortress of Time by Kaileena (the Empress of Time) to stop an evil Magi.

"After just two years in operation, we have now partnered with more than 300 locations around the globe", said Benedikt Grindel, Managing Director of the German Ubisoft studios. "What started as a prototype became one of the largest distribution networks in the location-based entertainment market, which makes us really proud".

Although Ubisoft has a handful of VR games for individuals, they have quickly built an out-of-home community of VR users that look forward to their games. Probably not, but I'll believe in whatever dreams I can at this point. I love spending time with my dog, Jester, and reading anything that sparks my fancy.
