The release date for Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is fast approaching, and Ubisoft has now revealed the game’s system requirements alongside the expected game length. Do these specs match up with your setup?

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is the first original Prince of Persia game since 2010’s Prince of Persia: The Forgotten Sands. It’s also a 2.5D platformer, something Ubisoft has not done before with the Prince of Persia franchise. With the release date quickly approaching, Ubisoft has now given fans new information regarding the game, including the PC system requirements.

Alongside the lax system requirements that have impressed fans with their flexibility, Ubisoft also revealed the resolution and frame rates for consoles, while also speaking to how long it may take for players to beat the game.

All system requirements for Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown

Ubisoft has revealed both the minimum and recommended system requirements for Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, and the requirements are surprisingly tame. This should allow even lower-end systems to run the game smoothly. Here’s the full breakdown:

Minimum SpecsRecommended Specs
Resolution: 1920×1080Resolution: 2560×1440(2K/QHD)
Preset/Target: Normal @ 60fpsPreset/Target: High @ 60fps

RAM: 8GB  (Dual Channel)RAM: 8GB (Dual Channel)
OS: Windows 10/11OS: Windows 10/11

Players who want to play at Ultra settings with 60fps and in 4K would need the recommended specs but with a GTX 1060 (6GB VRAM) instead of a GTX 960 (4GB VRAM). The frame rate is not locked in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown’s PC version, allowing players with higher system specifications to run the game at a higher framerate than 60. 

The studio also shared the resolution and frame rate for the game’s console versions, which suggests players will have a smooth experience regardless of platform.

The game will run at 720p 60fps in the Nintendo Switch’s portable mode and at 1080p 60fps in docked mode. The more powerful Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 will deliver 120fps in 4k for high refresh rate gameplay.

The Xbox Series S version of The Lost Crown will perform at 60fps in 1440p, while the PlayStation 4 Pro and Xbox One X will run the game at 4k 60fps. Lastly, the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Amazon Luna will run the game at 1080p 60fps

How long will Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown be?

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown’s average playtime is reportedly estimated to be about 25 hours. This information was revealed in a Game Informer interview with the developer of The Lost Crown, Ubisoft Montpellier

The 25-hour playtime suggests The Lost Crown’s game length is over double that of the previous 3D Prince of Persia games, which each took around 10 hours for players to complete. 

The new Prince of Persia game will be available for Switch, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, and Amazon Luna, with the PC release only releasing in the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store.

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown will launch on January 18, 2024, and will also get a demo version on January 11, 2024, as was first revealed in a leaked trailer.
