Ubisoft has good news for Prince of Persia fans - it will be releasing an exclusive pre-order edition that will be available exclusively from Play.com.

Those who cough up the cash early will be rewarded for their loyalty with a comic book outlining the back-story of Hunter, unique codes to unlock skins for the Prince and Elika (the Prince's new female companion), and a bonus DVD featuring the soundtrack and exlcusive videos.

The latest Prince of Persia game sees the first return of the series following its previous trilogy - Sands of Time, Warrior Within and Two Thrones. It is said to have a completely new visual style to previous games known as "next-gen cel-shading", which the game's producer Ben Mattes believes others will copy over the next few years.

The next chapter in Prince of Persia series will be released for PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 on 5th December. This is also the day DS gamers can look forward to the arrival of Prince of Persia: The Fallen King.
