Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown finds a Boss Attack mode

Relive some of the biggest moments from the campaign and don some new gear, with the second update for Prince of Persia.

Update goes PoP

One of the best received side-scrollers of 2024, Ubisoft’s latest Prince of Persia revamp is something of a hit for the company. The publisher isn’t forgetting about it either, and just dropped a second big update for the title, bringing a Boss Attack mode and more.

Boss Attack is pretty much what you’d assume, but with a twist. Fans can either take on each boss separately in Boss Revenge, or as a traditional ‘boss rush’ in… Boss Rush, which presents all eight in a row. Pretty cool too, is that beating the latter will grant fans a pretty slick bonus in the form of the 2008 Prince outfit. Speaking of that, there are two more outfits pack into the download too, and the ability to fast-travel via Wak-Wak trees. Seems like kind of a major addition.

This second Title Update, called Boss Attack, invites players to revive iconic moments on Mount Qaf, with two new Boss challenges from Artaban in The Haven, and two new outfits for Sargon. In the “Boss Revenge” challenge, players can face each boss separately, at any difficulty, with statistics boards to help them keep track of their best attempts. Once they feel warmed-up, they can take on the “Boss Rush” challenge and try to defeat all 8 main bosses in a row, changing equipped amulets and Athra surges between each fight, and keeping an eye on their health and potions.

This update also includes the iconic 2008 Prince of Persia outfit as one of the rewards for the completion of Boss Rush along with new ways to fast travel across the map, using Wak-Wak trees. It will be free for every player who already owns Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, and more updates are still underway.

Ubisoft press release

The above update is out right now, and if you don’t have a copy, then Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is available for the Switch, Xbox and PlayStation consoles, the PC, and Amazon’s Luna service.
