You probably know the story of how the Assassin’s Creed series came from another series - Prince of Persia. But it often sounds like a long time has passed between the two series, when in fact they were only two years apart. The last Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones came out on this day 16 years ago and already then laid the foundations for later Assassins.
The prince was an excellent acrobat in this game, which was conceived as the conclusion of the trilogy. He perfected his running on the walls, and at times he also rode carriages around Babylon - which also came in later AC games. The novelty in this part was that the Prince could take a weapon from the enemy and pair it with his own to be even more deadly in battle.
One of the plots of Two Thrones was to turn the protagonist into a dark version - the so-called Dark Prince who had specific weapons, but also his flaws. The transformation was automated, i.e. the player could not choose when it would happen, and the dialogues between the normal and the dark Prince stretched throughout the game.
The game received very good marks after its release and was considered a good conclusion of the trilogy. It later received versions for the Nintendo Wii and PSP consoles, but in slightly modified editions. Subsequently, she no longer appeared on other platforms or received any remaster. Today it can be played on a PC, ie Ubisoft Connect.
