Ubisoft's Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown is a side-scrolling action-adventure launching on January 18 for PC and console, and ahead of its launch, the publisher has outlined the PC hardware you'll need for the best performance.

According to the PC specs for the Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown, to achieve 4K 60fps, all you need is an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 (6GB) or AMD Radeon RX 5500 XT (8GB) graphics card. The CPU requirements for 4K60 are modest, too: an Intel Core i7-6700 or an AMD Ryzen 5 1600. Yeah, that's a mid-range first-gen Ryzen.

With such modest specs, you might think it doesn't look all that impressive, but that's not the case. With an evocative art style, detailed worlds, and fast-paced action, Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown looks great. With its old-school side-scrolling presentation, it could become a sleeper hit and a great boost for the dormant Prince of Persia franchise.

Here are the full PC specs covering 1080p, 1440p, and 4K - all at 60fps.

  • CPU: Intel Core i5-4460 3.4 GHz, AMD Ryzen3 1200 3.1 GHz

  • RAM: 8GB (Dual-channel setup)
  • Hard disk space: 30GB

  • OS: Windows 10/11 (64-bit only)

The only downside is that the game won't be available on Steam at launch; its PC release is limited to the Epic Games Store and the Ubisoft Store. There's good news for console gamers, with Ubisoft confirming that on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, players can expect 4K 120fps with the Nintendo Switch pushing 1080p 60fps while docked.
