I just want another PoP game in the style of TFS. I couldn't care less if it was another reboot really cos it's obvious ubi don't know what they're doing with this franchise. But this? This??

It looks so generic. Infact, please don't be a game.

Another great franchise thrown under the bus in order to appeal to the dudebros. This make Warrior Within look like PoP2008.

Why does nearly every game to come out of the main western studios now have to be really high budget, have really generic looking main characters and really generic storylines? My god. :/

Looks like an AC knockoff. At the very least, I hope it isn't as buggy as the 2008 PoP. I wasn't able to finish it due to how often it froze up.

That was actually my first thought. If someone told me that's a current gen AC spinoff set in Egypt, I'd believe it.

No, it doesn't. It looks like a current generation game in its early stages.

That doesn't look appealing I guess, but I will wait and see what it plays like. If the game had platforming as good as the SoT trilogy that would be great. I mean ideally it would be visually attractive and have great atmosphere like some of the better games in the series, but no one does platforming quite like those games did anymore. Not even the PoP games this gen. And the new Tomb Raider seems to have like no platforming (well there is I'm sure, but they have avoided showing it as much as possible and I am not super optimistic about its level of challenge). I'm hoping for the best. This is really one of my favorite series.

I would love if the main character were of a darker skin tone like what seems to be in the OP, just for variety's sake, but I doubt it.

Count me in. I still enjoy all the PoPs except for 2008. Hell, they can make it grimdark. It's not like it can be worse than Warrior Within, and it would be SOMETHINg. Forgotten Sands was just a fun platformer with the most forgettable story on the planet. I hope the Water Freezing is back. That was fun.

I'm also surprised people would want the PoP 08 team working on anything. You can want the artists, that's fine, but what a mediocre game where they turned the Prince into yet another Nolan North special

It's not that he isn't white for me, but his character design is big and burly. At this point (aesthetically speaking) it just screams God of War ish which is something that gets me very worried.

I want the parkour-ish gameplay from the last few Prince of Persias, so it would be nice if he looks more athletic like these dudes from Yamakasi:

2) POP 2008's sequel assets were used in making POP TFS Wii.

This is either developed for PC or Durango.

The only 2 platforms that could directly use DX11 (PS and Wii/U use some form of OpenGL)

The joke is that the boys in the screenshot look nothing like actual little boys, hence referring to them as "child men." But that just flew over your head, didn't it?

Gameloft is part of Ubisoft, and they have actually made "real" Asscreed games for mobile phones. A more apt joke would be "Zynga's Assassin's Creed," but this still looks too original for them.

I don't think it's gonna be great again until Mechner returns to the franchise. That seems to be the main difference between Sands of Time and everything that followed it. And I hear Mechner's involved with Beyond Good & Evil 2.

Also, Ubisoft should give up on melee combat at this point. They suck at it.
