Discover the Mythical World of Prince of Persia’s The Lost Crown with New 2.5D Platform Gameplay and Stunning Art Direction | Release Date Announced for 2024

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown Announced at Summer Game Fest

New Look and Gameplay

Prince of Persia is making a grand return with The Lost Crown! The new opus was announced during the Summer Game Fest and features a brand new artistic direction, as well as upgraded gameplay. The game will be a 2.5D platformer with metroidvania elements, resembling the origins of the franchise and the very first Prince of Persia game from 1989. The player will take on the role of a warrior named Sargon, who will venture through the region of Mount Qaf in search of the missing prince Ghassan. The game will feature fights against mythical creatures inspired by Persian mythology, such as manticores and a giant snake, as seen in the trailer.

Collaboration with Composer Gareth Coker

The studio also revealed that they have collaborated with Gareth Coker, a composer known for his work on Ori and the Blind Forest and Ori and the Will of the Wisps. Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown will be released on January 18, 2024, on Nintendo Switch, PS4 and PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series S/X, PC, and Amazon Luna. More information about the game will be released during the Ubisoft Forward event on June 11.

The Sands of Time are Waiting

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown announcement was a surprise for fans who were hoping for the Sands of Time remake instead. The Sands of Time was the first 3D installment of the franchise and received critical acclaim for its innovative concept and gameplay after its release in 2003. The remake was announced in 2020 and originally scheduled for release in 2021, but it was indefinitely delayed. In May, we learned that the project was still in its early stages as developers moved to Ubisoft Montreal. The producer, Jean-Francois Naud, assured fans that the team is putting all their strength and heart into the project, but players should not expect any updates on the game this year.
