The eventalso introduces a variety of themed customization items. As part of the free event pass, players will have access to 30 tiers of Prince of Persia–inspired gear and loot. Within the free tiers, players can obtain a new Battle Outfit, Sand Mood Effect, Emblem Outline and 26 new Ornaments, as well as Salvage, Steel and Crates along the way.
