The Prince of Persia franchise has been dormant for nearly a decade and a half, but 14 years on from the launch of 2010’s The Forgotten Sands, it’s finally back with another new instalment. Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, which has already been available for Deluxe Edition owners since earlier this week, has now launched for all owners of the game.

Developed by the team behind Rayman Origins and Legends at Ubisoft Montpellier, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown goes back to the series’ sidescrolling roots, though it does so with a new twist in the form of a Metroidvania structure. Set in Mount Qaf, the game sees players stepping into the shoes of a young warrior named Sargon, who journeys through the perilous mountains to rescue the kidnapped Prince Ghassan. Naturally, this being a Prince of Persia game, there are plenty of time-manipulation shenanigans as well.

In our review of the game, we awarded it a score of 9/10, saying, “The Lost Crown is a fantastic game. Not only does it capture the biggest strengths of Prince of Persia’s earliest sidescrolling instalments, it also reinvigorates the series in spectacular fashion with its Metroidvania design structure. From level design to combat, from the platforming to its visual style, from the exploration to the soundtrack, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is an impressive accomplishment in more ways than one, and one of Ubisoft’s best games in years.” Read the full review through here.

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is available on PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Check out its launch trailer through here. A demo of the game is also available on all platforms.
