The VR experience is being developed by Ubisoft Düsseldorf, and is based on the Sands of Time trilogy. Thankfully, Ubisoft has partnered with more than 300 locations to bring this new game to an arcade near you.

After unveiling The Division 2's Warlords of NY expansion, Ubisoft's upper echelons officially announce The Dagger of Time, the new Prince of Persia-themed experience to be enjoyed in VR escape rooms around the world. Ubisoft is right to be proud, if this new escape room VR is half as popular as its previous ones, it'll be a hit. They have over 300 locations across the globe and have plans to expand even further.

This is expected to be available for group play sometime in the spring of 2020. Keep an eye on the official website for more information. Similarly, in VR Escape Rooms players will group-up to solve puzzles but inside a virtual world that is built especially for it.

"In the story, players are summoned by Kaileena, the Empress of Time", Ubisoft explains. Unsurprisingly given its theme and location, players will need to use the time control powers of its titular dagger to solve puzzles and stop a sand army from being raised.

Dagger of Time tasks teams of two to four players with exploring a reimagined Fortress of Time, the imposing structure from 2004's Prince of Persia: Warrior Within.

The Executive Producer of this game, Cyril Voiron, says that "We chose to push the level of quality and complexity of our experiences to another level in Prince of Persia: The Dagger of Time". If Greek mythos is more your thing, then you'll be delighted with Beyond Medusa's Gate, an hour long experience based on the latest Assassin's Creed title, Odyssey. If you're keen to test out your puzzle-solving skills or want to dabble in a bit of time-altering magic, there are various locations across the United Kingdom, including London, Cardiff, Nottingham, and Dublin. If you're expecting to fight enemies in The Dagger of Time, you'll be disappointed.

This is an exciting time for VR and these experiences are only getting better!
