Ubisoft's new Prince Of Persia title officially arrives next Thursday, with media going hands-on with game this week ahead of launch. As we've already established, it's going down very well with the critics so far - and that extends to tech-focused outlet Digital Foundry.

In their new look at The Lost Crown, DF says that the game is "masterfully deployed across all platforms", including Xbox Series X and S. In fact, Microsoft's high-end machine seems to be the pick of the bunch, delivering a version that "sits closer to the full 120FPS target" than any other console platform.

"When playing on PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series X, you're in for a treat - The Lost Crown supports up to native 4K at 120 frames per second. Granted, you'll need an HDMI 2.1 compatible TV to display this, but trust me, it makes a big difference. 60fps is a walk in the park for PS5 and Xbox Series X, and even at 4K 120, they both acquit themselves well.

Xbox sits closer to the full 120fps target, but VRR is a great leveller, and both of the premium current-gen consoles look much alike. If you're sensitive to judder and your display's 120Hz support doesn't extend to VRR, 60fps is essentially a lock and may be preferable."

Over on Xbox Series S we're talking 1440p at 60FPS, which is another solid turnout for the console. Here's what the DF tech minds think about how the all-digital Xbox handles The Lost Crown:

"If we move down the stack, Series S is the one question mark from my perspective - this one tops out at 1440p60. It looks great, plays great and is more than adequate I might argue but it feels like the little box could do better. Even if 120fps is off the table, the point about VRR still stands and allowing the game to run above 60 fps on a VRR display would be optimal."

As for what we think of the game here at Pure Xbox, you'll have to read our full review to hear all about PJ's thoughts on this new Metroidvania adventure. We will tell you that the game scored a very-high 9/10 though - we've really enjoyed our time with this one.
