Prince of Persia Returns in 2024 with Metroidvania-style Platformer ‘The Lost Crown
For fans of the classic Prince of Persia series, the wait for a new game has been a long one. After the 2003’s third installment, the franchise had seemed to die out, with no new titles being released in the intervening years. But it looks like that’s all about to change. Recently, Ubisoft announced that they are bringing the series back in 2024 with a new Metroidvania-style platformer called The Lost Crown.
The game will take place in the same realm as the original Prince of Persia, though in a much more detailed 3D world. Players will explore and solve various puzzles as they make their way through each level. The gameplay will draw inspiration from classic Metroid and Castlevania games, with puzzle-solving and combat mechanics adapted to fit the Prince of Persia universe.
According to Ubisoft, The Lost Crown will put a strong emphasis on exploration and discovery. Players will be able to search for hidden items, locations, and secrets that unlock new paths and abilities. There will also be enemy encounters, traps, and timed challenges that must be completed in order to progress.
The game will feature a unique art style that combines traditional Middle Eastern architecture and influences from Syria and the Levant. Characters and environments will be incredibly detailed, with vibrant colors and animations. The soundtrack will feature a blend of world traditional instruments with modern electronic beats.
The Lost Crown is set to be released in 2024, and is currently in development for PC, Xbox, and PlayStation. It promises to be an exciting adventure, and a worthy addition to the beloved Prince of Persia series.
