    PRINCE OF PERSIA® REVELATIONS

    Storyline

    The story begins a few years after the conclusion of Prince of Persia®: The Sands of Time. The Prince has returned to Babylon, to find himself hunted by a supernatural creature bent on his destruction.

    Forced to live a life on the run, he seeks counsel from an old mystic, who explains that the Prince's actions have spawned a creature known as the Dahaka. In saving the Sultan's palace from destruction, the Prince created a rift in the Timeline. The Dahaka intends to repair this problem – by ending the Prince's life.

    The Prince quickly realizes that there's only one way to end his troubles: journey to the birthplace island of the Sands of Time, find a way to travel into the past, and stop the Sands from being created. He sets sail for the island immediately...
