Prince of Persia: Sands of Time official artwork

Prince of Persia: Sands of Time is a classic action adventure released in the ancient times of 2003, and it features a good mixture of combat, platforming, and naturally, puzzling. Its also one of the rare few games that has managed to successfully use time as a gameplay mechanic and not just a gimmick, both in combat and outside of it.

If this is now making you nostalgic for a series that has unfortunately died out, or if you've simply never played it but are willing to give it a try, you're in luck as Ubisoft is giving it away for free in celebration of their 30th anniversary. And before you ask, no, it has nothing to do with that boring movie! Here's a murky old trailer to hopefully give you an idea of what you're getting into:


This promotion will only last for a couple of days, so make sure to grab Sands of Time while you still have the time (heh), because Ubisoft hasn't stated a clear cut-off date. It could be next week, or it could be tomorrow, so if you're interested don't dilly-dally for too long.

On the positive side, once Prince of Persia: Sands of Time goes away, a brand new game will take its place. In other words, keep an eye on the Ubisoft website if you're looking to grab even more freebies.
