About Prince of Persia Set in a land
rooted in ancient Persian mythology, the Prince finds himself caught in an epic
battle between the primal forces of light and darkness: the God of Light, Ormazd
versus his brother Ahriman, the destructive God of Darkness. The Prince arrives
just in time to witness the destruction of the legendary Tree of Life – an act
which threatens to plunge the entire world into eternal darkness. Manifested in
the form of the Corruption, a dark substance that physically contaminates the
land and the skies, the Prince must partner with Elika, a deadly companion, to
heal the world from the evil Corruption.

About Prince of Persia: The Fallen
King Facing imminent danger, the Prince flees to a deserted kingdom that
seemingly offers sanctuary. Already touched by the evil Corruption, a dark
substance that physically contaminates the land and the skies, the kingdom is
filled with adventure, challenge and intrigue. As the Prince seeks a way to
fight the spreading Corruption destroying the land, he encounters a partially
infected creature that promises salvation. But is the creature truly an ally or
merely an enemy in disguise? It seems this perilous alliance may be the only way
for the Prince to face the forces of darkness and save the Persian kingdom from
the Corruption once and for all.
