Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown officially releases on January 18, but there is a way to play early if you go through Ubisoft and it can even save you some money/ This guide will cover how you can get early access and how much it will cost.
How to Get Early Access for Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown
You can play Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown early by subscribing to Ubisoft Plus. As long as you subscribe to the service any time between January 15 and the official release, you can play as much as you want in the early period. There is three days of early access overall, which has become a staple for many game launches.
Ubisoft Plus will cost $15 per month for PC users and $18 if you want the all-encompassing platform plan. Compared to the $50 price tag of the game, this can save you a good chunk of change if you only plan on playing once. But like any subscription service, the catch is that you won’t own the game after you stop subscribing.
For a game like Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, one month to play should be plenty of time to beat the game. However, you can easily spend nearly 40 hours in the game if you want to collect everything. If you’re a completionist or you simply want the game for the future, then I suggest just purchasing the game on the official launch date.
Remember that Ubisoft Plus has a bunch of other titles you can try out if you want to take full advantage of the monthly subscription. It won’t be as extensive as Game Pass but you can expect to see some of your Ubisoft favorites along with The Lost Crown for early access.
If you’re on the fence about the game, then you should try out the demo that’s available for free.
