June 10th, 2024 – Today, Ubisoft shared multiple exciting updates on its iconic franchise, Prince of Persia. From major free title updates on Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown and The Rogue Prince of Persia, to a beacon of anticipation and excitement around the remake of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, the brand confirmed its embers have truly turned into a blaze. And it is only the beginning!

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown

The highly anticipated “Divine Trials” free update is now available for all Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown players. It adds 22 new expert challenges for players to push their skills to the maximum! Players can now access the Hall of Memorials, through a special door located in the Haven, and choose from four sets of challenges. These challenges become progressively more difficult and are designed with unique exotic conditions. Whether it’s Platforming, Puzzles, Combat or even newly reworked Boss Battles, there won’t be easy victories! Trials are gradually unlocked as each new power is acquired. However, players who have already completed the trials will get direct access to all of them at once, in their existing saves. Four new amulets and outfits will reward players who managed to beat the revised Boss at the end of each set. Players were also given a glimpse of the future Story DLC “Mask of Darkness”, coming to all platforms in September 2024.

The Rogue Prince of Persia

The recently released and critically acclaimed 2D fast-paced platformer roguelite The Rogue Prince of Persia dropped the first major title update to its Early Access during the conference. “The Temple of Fire” brings a vibrant yet treacherous new biome in which players will have to mobilize all their skills to overcome new enemies, traps, and traversal challenges. Evil Empire studio spiced up the experience with 2 new mobs, the Shielded Warrior and Duellist, as well as 1 new weapon, the Flaming Censers. This update also introduces the Meta Progression Skill Tree, which allows players to use Spirit Glimmers to unlock persistent improvements. The Temple of Fire is the first major content addition among multiple updates leading up to the 1.0 launch of the game, based on community feedback collected throughout the Early Access phase.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

The remake of Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time confirmed the targeted year of release, through a poetic vision of a flame reignited. In 2026, players will get to reconnect with their beloved Prince, in an adventure rebuilt from the ground up, which captures the magic of the original game. The game successfully completed its pre-production phase and is now entering full production, with Ubisoft Toronto, Ubisoft Bucharest, Ubisoft Pune and E-Studio joining forces with Ubisoft Montréal.
