For those who thought Prince of Persia‘s ending was too cliffhangy, I’ve got good news. Ubisoft has announced plans for an Epilogue DLC chapter continuing the journey of Prince and Elika. More than just that, though, the expansion will include a new corrupted region to heal, new enemies, powers, attacks and even more unlockable character costumes, all said to total over three hours’ worth of additional gameplay content. Here’s the list of new features PoP fans have to look forward to, along with three screenshots on the jump:

– New Region: The Underground Palace – A corrupted underground palace from which the Prince and Elika need to escape in a new epic journey.

– New Power: Energize – Reconstruct destroyed areas of the environment to create a path and rush through it before it vanishes.

– New high pace: The new trap challenge – The Prince and Elika will face more cunning foes, cleverer traps and level design, adding more to the difficulty level in over 3 hours of gameplay.

– New Attack: Sprinting Clash – A duel move that lets you or the enemy trigger a sprint attack, charging towards each other, clashing your weapons fiercely.

– New Unlockable Skins: Finish the game and unlock exclusively, from the early development of the game, the Prototype characters of the Prince and Elika.

The Prince of Persia Epilogue will be released on PS3 and Xbox 360 on February 26th – no mention of plans to expand the PC version. Pricing has not been announced at this time.
