Ubisoft has announced that Prince Of Persia: The Lost Crown has gone gold ahead of its January 2024 release date.
The news was announced on the official X (Formerly Twitter) account, where the studio confirmed that the game is ready to be printed for retail.
“Prince Of Persia: The Lost Crown has gone gold! On behalf of the entire team, we can’t wait for you to put your hands on the game and explore mythological Persia as Sargon”, their post reads.
The action-adventure platform video game will be released on January 18th for PC, Nintendo Switch, and PlayStation and Xbox consoles.
What Is Prince Of Persia: The Lost Crown?
It’s the first new instalment in the Prince Of Persia series for more than 10 years and follows Sargon, a member of The Immortals warrior clan, as he embarks on a journey to Mount Qaf to save the kidnapped Prince Ghassan.
Announced back in June, the side-scrolling game sees you explore its interconnected world by running, jumping, sliding, and air dashing, and facing enemies and challenging bosses with Sargon’s blades and time-based abilities.
I was lucky enough to play the game at WASD back in September, thrusting me into a later section of the game wherein I explored some of the game’s world by unlocking shortcuts and climbing and descending various platforms.
The preview also pit me up against Jahandar, a frightening manticore boss fight that proved to be a challenge and functioned similarly to a Dark Souls-esque boss, requiring me to memorise attack patterns and only fight back when I was presented with openings.
