The Jade engine is a game engine developed by Ubisoft Montpellier and used by Ubisoft. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, Warrior Within, The Two Thrones, and the Nintendo Wii and PlayStation Portable versions of The Forgotten Sands all use the Jade Engine.
The Jade Engine engine was originally developed by a development team on Ubisoft Montpellier, including Michel Ancel, for their critically acclaimed video game Beyond Good & Evil, the main character of which, Jade, shares its name.
The engine allows for great flexibility that includes different gameplay sequences and detailed graphics, both in cinematics and gameplay. Since its introduction in 2003, the engine has been developed further for use in later games, listed below.
