In a thrilling turn of events, Summer Game Fest 2023 kicked off with a remarkable announcement that took fans by surprise. While the highly anticipated remake of “Prince of Persia: Sands of Time” continues to be in development, a brand-new title, “Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown,” brings a refreshing twist that harks back to the Prince’s original 2D roots.
The gameplay showcased an impressive blend of dynamic combat and exhilarating high-speed platforming, deviating from the methodical platforming that initially inspired the series. The enigmatic protagonist, previously known simply as the Prince, now takes on a different persona named Sargon, while still bearing a resemblance to his iconic Sands of Time iteration. This alteration injects a fresh breath of life into the franchise, captivating both longtime fans and newcomers alike.
According to a captivating press release, “Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown” embarks players on a captivating journey as Sargon, a young and gifted warrior who belongs to an esteemed group known as The Immortals. Entrusted with the mission to rescue Prince Ghassan, Sargon and his brothers-in-arms will explore the treacherous terrain of Mount Qaf. Once a place of wonder, the mountain now lies cursed and hostile, presenting formidable challenges at every turn. As they delve deeper into the adventure, Sargon and his comrades will confront the relentless passage of time itself, realizing the crucial need to restore balance to the world. The game draws inspiration from the Metroidvania structure, enticing players with its immersive and interconnected world.
Excitement builds as the release date for “Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown” approaches. Mark your calendars for January 16, when the game will launch on multiple platforms including the Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 5 and 4, Xbox Series X/S and Xbox One, Amazon Luna, and PC via the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store. Ubisoft has promised eager fans further revelations during its Monday stream event, ensuring that anticipation for this new installment reaches its peak.
