News: The Prince is back and ready to defy a death once more. This time his own. MWAHAHAHAHA!
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was considered one of the most pure action games ever when it was released in 2003.

But that doesn't take anything away from the Prince as people are climbing walls to catch the first glimpses of Prince of Persia 2. You have it easy as you just have to read this Fact Sheet from Ubisoft:
The Old Man said to the Prince, "Your fate has been written. You will die."
