'Spiral Knights' Reaches One Million Players

Spiral Knights is a free-to-play multiplayer online action adventure game offering classic, console-style adventuring in a persistent online world. Players can go it alone or join with up to four friends to unravel the hidden secrets of the ever-changing world of the Clockworks.

“So many people came together to make this achievement possible – from Three Rings’ incredible team to our partners at Steam and, of course, the million players who have joined the game thus far,” said Haruki Satomi, Vice President of Digital Business at SEGA of America. “We look forward to welcoming even more new players in the coming months as we continue to expand and enrich the world of Spiral Knights.”

“During development, we hoped Spiral Knights’ classic action, handcrafted art, and co-operative nature would appeal to gamers of all stripes, and reaching this milestone is confirmation of our vision for the game,” said Daniel James, CEO of Three Rings. “Seeing a million eager knights forging ahead into the Clockworks, building guilds and our game community, is gratifying for our entire team. As seen in content updates like today’s Ironclaw Munitions Factory and the recent Gloaming Wildwoods update, we are more determined than ever to continue expanding and adding to the Clockworks for our fans.”

Starting today, Spiral Knights’ daring adventurers can also explore the Ironclaw Munitions Factory, a new dungeon located deep within the Clockworks. Intel from Spiral HQ has confirmed that gremlin engineers have banded together to develop a weapon of incredible power, known only as “Project Roarmulus.” Spiral Knights will have to survive a harrowing trip through the complex’s destructive devices if they want to put an end to the project, but fortunately there are a number of new weapons, including the Polaris and Supernova guns, to help them succeed!

Key Features:

  • Constantly changing world brought to life in a vibrant, retro-inspired visual style
  • Intuitive pick-up-and-play controls (including both mouse-only and gamepad control)
  • Opportunities for players to create guilds, craft new gear, and customize the looks and abilities of their characters
  • Easy matchmaking for co-op mayhem with parties of up to four players
  • Gear and weapons upgradeable through adventuring or through the purchase of Crystal Energy
