View Full Version : Question on how to unlock Skins

So I unlocked the Altair skin easily enough. But I can't figure out how to unlock the SOT Prince and Farah Skins for the new Prince of Persia game. I bought the game, pre-ordered it, and got the limited edition upgrade for free, but the package didn't come with any cards with codes on them for the download. Then, when I go to unlock the skins in the main menu, it says "Enter the eight digit code on the back of your package."

What eight digit code? I can't seem to find it.

I just want to unlock this awesome content. I hope you guys can help me out. Thanks.

I heard that you have to scratch from the material you got and the code is written on it.

It's a little black sticker that comes on the back of the limited edition, but only if you got it from GameStop.

Only if I got it from GameStop, eh?

Well, I bought it at GameCrazy...

Doh!

Guess I'm out of luck then, huh? No skins for me?

I am not sure whether its confirmed or not.

Please wait, there might be some officials throwing some light on it here.

Well, I just hope I can get the cool skins, ya know? It would be fun to be the SOT Prince and Farah on a second play-through. XD

If it is true that you can only get the skins if you pre-ordered the game at GameStop, then I guess it's my fault. I should have paid more attention to offers.

And I call myself an informed consumer, lol. Oh well.

BTW to Ubisoft however, I am loving the game so far. Very Prince of Persia feeling. Just got my first power, it's very fun.

Well I bought it from Canada, and the code was on a sheet of paper in box.

I just got off the phone with a GameStop here in Phoenix. My copy of PoP didn't come with a code, I ordered it for XboX360. I called them and was informed that NONE of their 360 copies came with a code, only the PS3 ones did.

I smell shenanigans, but when I pushed harder at the employee he said that not a single copy of the game for xbox had the sticker.

Question. If I use the pre-order code, will it be unlocked for all profiles on my 360?

So from what I can gather the Altair skin is exclusive to Gamestop but the Sand's of Time Prince skin is a reward for registering on the site. On the homepage the option to unlock the award is unavailable so far.

Altair is for everyone who links their online 360/PSN account with Ubi.com. The SOT costume is for gamestop pre-orders who got the free limited edition. Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like I'm the only one who didn't get the code for the unlock...

Shadownicus

Well, like I said I bought my limited edition copy at GameCrazy, not GameStop. But still, I was under the impression that it didn't matter what store chain I bought the game from, that no matter what the limited edition would have the extra costumes...the SOT prince and Farah, which is what I originally started this topic about.

I was wrong apparently. I am also surprised Ubisoft officials haven't posted anything on this topic yet...

I found the GameStop sticker on the back of my PS3 version.

HOWEVER!!!!!!

ubi montreal thought it might be good to post the code here:

Limited Edition Skin Code! (http://cheats.ign.com/ob2/068/890/890665.html)

I would post it here, but I'm not sure about the policy of the forums in regards to such things.

Also, make sure you have the cursor over the last number before you hit X to finalize the code or else it won't work. (3 minutes of complete ****ed-offed-ness and I figured it out)

Enjoy!

(Although I think the new PoP skins from the Prince and Elika are WAY better looking than these..)

I pre-ordered at GameStop and got the code no problem. It is a little white, red and black sticker on the bottom left corner of the limited edition box. Code is on the inside when you peel it open.

Roomate also got the same code.

Sound slike all the latest Ubisoft exclusive content offerings. The code is the same since it just unlocks the skin, it doesn't actually download. The IGN code apparently works then. Same thing happened w/ Farcry 2. I preorder to find that everyone can get the extra missions. The game is awesome though.

Got a question. I'm not a hard core gamer, I tend to get just certain games so I have the very basic XBox360 Arcade and I haven't gotten around to buying a wireless adapter. So is there any other way to unlock the Altair skin without registering the game through XBox Live?

So what are the other two skins? I have the LE edition skins (which now I consider was not worth it seeing as I Paid an Extra 5 for it from play.com and the codes are freely available to everyone anyway http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif)

That said, after linking GT to ubisoft and unlocking Jade after completing the game, there will still be 2 characters to be unlocked, according to the Skin Manager

Sorry by the noob question but, how do you even link your PSN account to your Ubisoft account? I have already registered the game using my PC, and I do have an account at ubi.com. Do I need to do anything else through my console? Thanks in adance.

When you go to the exclusive content option - for PS3 it's Triangle - it should ask you to register or login.
Simply log in from there.

At least that's what I did.

I've just read that the two other skins will be available soon.

It worked! Thanks for posting that IGN link, and also Ubisoft thanks for helping with this skin issue. I now have both the SOT Prince and Farah unlocked.

Cheers!

so i had no prob's with the first two sets of skins, but the last set is still unavailable? I even got all the light seeds to see if 100%-ing the game would do it, but they are still locked. when are we going to be able to get these skins? is it in-game, or is it another linked account thing? jeez this game having skins would have given it some more replay value, but having no unlockables is kinda lame.
and I don't say that lightly, because I love the PoP series.

Are you guys out in the colonies? In the UK i picked mine up from play.com. To get the unlock codes you had to pre-order the collectors edition and it came on a small piece of card in the box. The website said it was exclusive offer to them. The altair skin is unlocked by registering the game to ur ubi account via your console.

The SOT skins are good, though you keep getting shots up Farah's skirt when climbing vines which I felt was a bit inappropriate in a game that only has a PEGI 12 rating. A bit of slip by UBI there

Completed The game more than once really like the way it plays. However I was dissapointed with the lack of mutiple endings its nice to have a choice.. Be nice to see some downloadable levels and content asap as the game was easily completed in a few hours.. Anyway to the topic at hand I have all the skins except the last two. What is the deal with these? I have collected every light seed and still nothing.. Anyone got any ideas how to get them please let us know thanx

just to reiterate :

S of T Skins - 52585854
Altair - 13372805

Note that I used these for the PC version...there isn't to my knowledge a way to register etc. for PC. Also I'm not sure if its just a PC thing, but the S of T code worked without the 2 on the end...I've seen both ways posted, but either way works I suppose.

to get altair if it's ps3 you sync accounts if it's pc i'm guessing you use the non 525 etc..code. As for the last 2 costumes the getting all light seeds is only for pc version. I hear it's the prototype of prince and princess not sure how to get them on the ps3/360 versions alot of us are wanting it badly I just hope to god it's not dlc since the pc version gets it for free and that'd be a jip

Well, to get to get the orignal prince Skin, go to the main menu click on exstras and after that, open the box of the game, and you have to manuels right? one french and one english(if your in canada, well, thier should be a card in thier as well, around the same size as the manuels maybe smaller by a few militres, anyways read on the bottom of it -close to the bottom) and follow the instructions, if it does not work, then come back here and we will see what we can do for you buddy
Now for Altairs skin,(This MIGHT be only for PS3 on the normal game, not limited but I am not sure) Go to main menu (Where it sexstras, load game new game. options etc,) and press triangle, and you should go to a page where thier is "exclusive content" it should give you instructions on what to do to get, and thier you have it.
if this does not work either just ocme back here and we will help you out buddy
