We thought Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown made a great first impression with its debut trailer, but it attracted a widely negative response from most. Well, however you feel about it, the game has just received a more in-depth look at actual gameplay, and if you ask us, it's looking very promising.

Playing as Sargon, you explore a "semi-open", side-scrolling world, with an even split on acrobatic platforming and fast-paced combat. The series' signature time-bending abilities make a return as well, changing the landscape around you and also aiding you in fights.

It looks super tight and responsive across the board โ€” we're pretty excited to get our hands on this. Fortunately, it's not that far away, launching on PS5 and PS4 on 18th January 2024. What do you make of Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown? Tell us in the comments section below.
