Prince Of Persia: The Lost Crown Game Length Revealed


How long will it take to complete the new Prince of Persia game from Ubisoft?

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown will be released this month, and it appears that players will spend a lot of time with the game’s protagonist Sardon. According to Game Informer, the game will take approximately 25 hours to complete. That’s a reasonable amount of time for a 2D Metroidvania, but keep in mind that it’s only an estimate from Ubisoft, and the amount could vary depending on the player’s skill, knowledge of the series and genre, and a variety of other factors.

┬áIf that figure is correct, it would be much longer than we’ve seen from the Prince of Persia franchise in the past. Games like Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time and The Warrior Within can last anywhere from 8 to 15 hours. Quality is far more important than quantity, and those games are highly regarded. The greater challenge for Ubisoft Montpellier will be to deliver an experience that lives up to players’ high expectations. This is the first new Prince of Persia game in more than a decade, and fans will expect it to live up to the best the series has to offer.

In the video game industry, length has always been a source of contention. On the one hand, the most highly regarded games in the Prince of Persia series were all relatively short, and this hasn’t harmed their reputation. There are some truly excellent games that can be completed in a matter of hours, and the best games frequently encourage players to replay them.

On the other hand, video games are an investment for many players; Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, at $49.99 (R936.00), is less expensive than many other games on the market, but not everyone can afford to buy a lot of games each year. Some people must be more selective, and if a game is short, it may feel like a waste of money.

At the end of the day, it is up to each individual player to determine the value of their gaming dollars, and there is no right or wrong answer. There have been many games that have outstayed their welcome, lasting longer than most players would have preferred.

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown will be available on PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch on January 18th. With the release date rapidly approaching, fans won’t have to wait much longer to find out how long it takes to complete the game.
