Prince of Persia The Lost Crown: How To Fast Travel

Learning how to unlock Fast Travel mechanic is very useful in Prince of Persia The Lost Crown, and here is how to do it.

Prince of Persia The Lost Crown features a massive map with all of the regions connected well with each other. Even though traveling from one section to another hardly takes a few minutes, being able to fast travel makes it seamless and effortless. However, the fast travel mechanic is not readily available from the get-go in Prince of Persia The Lost Crown, and you need to unlock it first.  

Key Takeaways
  • Prince of Persia The Lost Crown has a vast interconnected map.
  • You can unlock Fast Travel by acquiring Rush of the Simurgh power after defeating Jahandar.
  • Activate Fast Travel in Sacred Archives by smashing a purple orb.
  • Locate more Fast Travel points by smashing purple orbs throughout the game.
  • Identify Fast Travel spots on the map with blue horse icons.

How To Unlock Fast Travel

In order to unlock Fast Travel feature in Prince of Persia The Lost Crown, you need to first acquire Rush of the Simurgh power after defeating Jahandar boss. 

This happens when you reach The Abducted Prince chapter of the game and you should unlock the power naturally as you progress the story. The next step is to reach Sacred Archives, the west side of the lower city, as shown on the map’s image above.

If you have already reached here by chance, then you will find that there is an inaccessible area blocked by a large size spike trap. Well, now that you have Rush of the Simurgh power, Sargon can dash mid-air and cross the spiked floor.

  1. Cross this area using a series of maneuvers with the newly acquired power.
  2. Go to the next room.
  3. Do not go up as it leads to another area.
  4. Instead, keep going straight into the next room.
  5. You will find a Wak-Wak Tree and a broken Homa Statue next to it.
  6. Break the purple orb and the Homa statue will be renewed to its fixed form. 
  7. This will be the first fast travel point, Scholar’s Area.
Important: Once the purple orb is broken, the Fast Travel Homa Statue will come back into fixed form, and you can now start using Fast Travel mechanic in Prince of Persia The Lost Crown.

By this point, The Haven Fast Travel point would also be unlocked automatically, so I suggest you make a run for it, get yourself some weapon upgrades, and get more healing potions

Every time you enter any section of the game’s map and the screen radiates with a purple crystal-like color, know that there is a Fast Travel statue nearby. You just need to find it and smash the purple orb to unlock another fast travel point. 

Important: Fast Travel points are easy to spot on the game’s map. Look for the blue horse-like creature icon on the map. While Wak-Wak Trees heal Sargon and replenish potions and arrows, they do not allow Fast Travel.

That is pretty much everything I had to discuss about how to unlock the Fast Travel mechanic in the game. If you find this guide helpful, then I suggest you also read: Prince of Persia: The Lost Crown Review, best Amulets in Prince of Persia The Lost Crown, and the Best Athra Surges in the game.
