Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown was one of 2024's biggest surprises for many people, me included, and so the announcement of a new story DLC titled Mask of Darkness has me excited for where they'll take Sargon next.

During Ubisoft's June showcase the title was revealed during a short trailer, but we didn't learn much else. If the base game is anything to go off, it's safe to assume it will feature even more challenging platforming and combat sections.

Let's dive into what we do know for now.

What is the Mask of Darkness release window?

The teaser trailer for the DLC revealed it will launch in September 2024

As far as release windows usually go, it's quite a narrow one, and as long as it doesn't get pushed back at all, players won't have to wait very long.

We'll update this with the concrete release date once it's announced.

All trailers so far

The only trailer for Mask of Darkness is the story DLC teaser trailer from Ubisoft's showcase in June.

Despite the name, most of the trailer was dedicated to the director thanking players, footage of streamers playing the game, and the free update called Divine Trials, which adds new combat challenges, puzzles, remixed bosses, and more.

The one shot we did get of the DLC showed Sargon stood in front of a large mask that's fixed onto a broken wall. We hear ominous music play and a cacophony of whispers in the background, before it cuts to a small cinematic of the mask looking up as its eyes glow blue.

It suggests the DLC may be a little darker in tone and atmosphere than the original game, but we won't know for sure until we get closer to release.

What are the platforms?

Mask of Darkness will be available on all the platforms that the base game is on: Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
