Ubisoft has taken a nostalgic leap into the past by releasing a free playable demo for the much-anticipated "Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown". Available on Xbox, PlayStation, Switch, and PC, this unexpected move has stirred excitement among fans and the gaming community alike, providing a taste of the action before the official launch next week.

Reviving a Classic for a New Generation

"Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown" marks the resurgence of Ubisoft's long-dormant action-platforming series, captivating a new generation of gamers who may not have experienced the series since its last installment in 2008. This time, the game follows the journey of the prince's protector, Sargon, embarking on a Metroidvania-style quest filled with side-scrolling combat and platform action.

"Supremely polished, ultra-smooth experience that perfectly leverages every platform it has shipped on"

Developed by Ubisoft Montpellier, the studio renowned for the beloved "Rayman Legends" and "Origins", early impressions of "The Lost Crown" are notably positive. Digital Foundry's John Linneman praises the game as a "supremely polished, ultra-smooth experience that perfectly leverages every platform it has shipped on". The gameplay, featuring intricate rooms, challenging puzzles, and fast-paced melee combat, has received acclaim for its engaging and immersive qualities.


A Rare Gesture in 2024's Gaming Landscape

In a surprising departure from the norms of triple-A publishers, Ubisoft has not only created a promising title but has also released a free playable demo—a rarity in the current gaming landscape. According to Ubisoft, the demo showcases selected sections from the game, offering early access to Time Powers and amulets without revealing crucial plot points. With an estimated playtime of around 30 minutes, the demo invites players to immerse themselves in the Prince of Persia universe before committing to the full experience.

Accessible Across Platforms

The demo is available on PlayStation 4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, and PC (via Epic Games and the Ubisoft Store). These platforms will also host the full release of "Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown" on Monday, January 15th, allowing gamers across various devices to experience the classic franchise's revival.

Ubisoft's move to provide a free playable demo not only showcases confidence in their latest creation but also offers a thoughtful gesture to curious players, allowing them to preview the game's mechanics and atmosphere. As the sands of time begin to flow again, "Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown" stands poised to make a significant impact on the gaming landscape, inviting both new and seasoned players to embark on an unforgettable adventure.
