Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands Game-stopping Bug [Update2]

The original glitch in the computer world was a literal bug in the system, a moth as the story goes. May I submit to you that latest bug to add to the ever-growing list.

I’d only progressed halfway through Ubisoft Montreal’s latest adventure when I flipped my way to The Observatory. The room looked fairly straightforward, flip to the pull switch, activate the astrolabe and use it to vault my way to freedom. Unfortunately, the switch required to control the astrolabe doesn’t rise with the platform, as evidenced in this walkthrough video. Just an emblem with some mysterious smokey fire (that’s usually inside the switch).

I was unlucky in locating any mention of the bug via Google. This leads me to believe that the issue isn’t widespread. Short of restarting the game (or cheating), I cannot progress any further.  This is really unfortunate because I am supposed to review the game!

I’ve reached out to Ubisoft Montreal for comment. I can only assume that a patch is in the works.


A reader was kind enough to upload his save game file that includes the much needed switch.  I’ve yet to try it myself, but a handful of members have already moved beyond the Astrolabe thanks to the file.

Let’s see, all we needed was a different save game to remedy the issue.  Doesn’t seem that hard to address/fix Ubisoft!


I’ve confirmed that the file does unlock the long lost switch (and that the file is virus/spyware free, as far as my tools can tell).  Many thanks to Asilo for the upload. Now, I am off to complete and review the game…
