Prince of Persia The Lost Crown

Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown gets a Boss Rush mode

God bless free updates. Ubisoft is knocking it out of the park with updates for Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, adding brand new content for the grand old sum of free. In March it received a speedrun mode, and today the second major update arrives — called Boss Attack.

Boss Attack is comprised of two brand new challenges available in Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown. In case the name isn’t obvious, these challenges are aimed at players who have already completed the game and provide new ways to revisit its mighty boss fights.

First up is the Boss Revenge challenge. Here, players can take on any one of the game’s bosses on any difficulty they choose. Each attempt will be registered on a statistics board, allowing players to keep track of their best efforts and improve over their last attempt.

The main event of Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown’s latest update, though, is undoubtedly the Boss Rush mode. Boss Revenge is essentially just the practice run: in Boss Rush mode, players will attempt to take on all eight main bosses in one go. You can change your amulets and Athra Surges between each fight, but you’ll need to monitor your health and potions count if you want to succeed.

The Boss Attack update also brings a new outfit to the game, inspired by the 2008 Prince of Persia. This will be available to players who manage to beat Boss Rush, giving everyone a good reason to hone their skills.

There’s also a new way to fast travel across the map (using wak-wak trees), which will be a welcome addition — particularly if you’re not done with the main game yet.

More updates are still to come, with Ubisoft having laid out a roadmap back in March. We can look forward to Divine Trials coming later this summer, alongside new story DLC towards the end of the year.

If you’re yet to jump in, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is well worth playing. In our review, we called it “very worthy of a recommendation”, going on to say it “has everything you’d expect of a Prince of Persia game, from tense, thoughtful combat to challenging platforming.”
