Here’s where you can pre-order Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown

Ubisoft’s latest entry goes back to its sidescrolling roots

If you buy something from a Polygon link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

Cameron Faulkner (he/him) is Polygon’s commerce editor. He began writing about tech and gaming in 2013, and migrated from The Verge in 2023.

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown launches across all platforms on Jan. 18, including PC, the Nintendo Switch, Xbox, and PlayStation consoles. One of its big selling points is that it’s a fantastic game, according to Polygon’s Maddy Myers’ impressions post linked above. You can see for yourself whether you’d like to the game by downloading a free demo on your platform of choice.

While Prince of Persia’s pivot to 3D in The Sands of Time is beloved by many, it’s possible that Ubisoft’s pivot back to 2D for The Lost Crown may be just what the series needed to hit its stride for this generation of consoles and players. Not to mention, it runs at 60 frames per second on every console.

In case you’re interested in pre-ordering the game before it launches, we’ve gathered all the details regarding bonuses you’ll receive below.

What’s included with Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown standard edition

This $49.99 title is available to pre-order in physical format for every platform except PC. The likes of Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, and Walmart can hook you up with a hard copy for your preferred console. As a pre-order bonus, you’ll receive a Warrior Within outfit for Sargon, the protagonist of this game.

If you want to buy it directly through your console’s storefront, here are links to take you directly to Nintendo, Xbox, and PlayStation. If you want to play it on PC, you can only purchase it digitally through the Ubisoft Store, or through the Epic Games Store. You’ll get the same pre-order bonus no matter where you buy. Alternatively, you can play it in full with a subscription to Ubisoft Plus, which costs $17.99 per month.

What’s included with Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown deluxe edition

For $59.99, you can get the deluxe edition of The Lost Crown, which includes the Warrior Within outfit and some extras. You’ll get the Deluxe Pack, which has the Immortal outfit and the Prosperity Bird Amulet, and the digital adventure guide for the game.

The biggest benefit to buying this version is that it will let you play the game three days early, starting on Jan. 15. Just so you know, subscribing to Ubisoft Plus for $17.99 per month will let you play the game three days ahead of launch, in case you’d rather go that route.

The Deluxe Edition is only available in digital format. You can pick it up from Best Buy (Xbox, Nintendo), Amazon (Nintendo), GameStop (Xbox, Nintendo), as well as directly from console and PC storefronts mentioned in the previous section.
