Ubisoft Osiris motion capture video discovered but Prince of Persia goes on hold

A 5 month old video showcasing Ubisoft’s rumored Prince of Persia reboot, a project named Osiris, has just been discovered on Vimeo today. The video, said to have been commissioned by Ubisoft Montreal, doesn’t show any gameplay. Instead, it consists of footage from motion capture sessions; draft scenes of (presumably the main) character getting in fights with mobs, dragging a victim away and plenty of ‘slow-motion’ movement. There’s also flashes of artwork depicting an ancient Egypt setting.

Columbia called ‘Modern Day Icarus’ in Bioshock Infinite’s Truth from Legend trailer

In this video narrated by Alistar Bloom, the history of Bioshock Infinite’s main setting, the floating city of Columbia, is explored as Bloom attempts to separate ‘Truth from Legend’ about the city’s mysteries and artifacts.
