Portal Knights is an action-packed, 3D sandbox role-playing game which transports players into exciting realms of magic, monsters and mystery.

Offering the opportunity to craft your own journey within the solo experience or become part of a four-player multi-player adventure, Portal Knightsincludes spectacular dungeon crawling, castle building and boss fighting. Portal Knightsallows players the chance to visit other worlds and biomes as they progress through the game, whilst the game’s skill tree and lightweight levelling system allows players to set goals and vary to different styles by offering unique role-playing game (RPG) playerclasses.

The Portal Knights adventure begins as players create their character as a Warrior, Mage or Ranger from a multitude of customization opportunities that can be continually enhanced throughout the game. Once a character is created, players are immersed into the world of fun and fantasy with dozens of randomly generated environments, each one uniquely populated with enemies to vanquish, treasures to discover and resources to mine. Across this dangerous ruinous world, the action-packed journey features an interconnected web of ancient portals inviting players to craft, battle and build their own adventure on a quest to become the ultimate Portal Knight!

Back in 2014, 505 Games partnered with the incredibly talented development team at Keen Games to bring the idea of Portal Knights to life. The aim was to develop an action RPG sandbox game that differed from the competition with tactical action combat, sophisticated RPG elements, and regular events — and would ultimately be shaped by our players.

So, what can you expect? What is Portal Knights all about? Here’s the thing… you can approach Portal Knights however you want! Pick an RPG character class, customize your hero, travel between unique islands connected by portals, build and furnish your home, farm resources, battle fearsome bosses, level up through combat, learn new skills, craft a range of weapons and spells, help out friends in multiplayer and much, much more… (Let us just catch our breath a moment!)

Portal Knights can be enjoyed in single player mode, or with family and friends in co-op or online multiplayer mode. Maybe you want to start your journey alone, but what if you need some help gathering resources for your latest build? Not a problem: Invite a friend into your world and adventure together! Treat Portal Knights like a blank canvas and paint it however you want.

Community is massively important to us as a team and we’ve been working closely with our players since we first launched on PC. The aim has always been simple – to make Portal Knights the game our community wants it to be and have them help shape the roadmap with us.

We’re always keeping a close eye on our social channels and forums, talking with our players and identifying what it is they want to see in-game. As a result, our team of developers has been working flat-out behind the scenes to bring highly requested features to Portal Knights. It’s been an exciting ride so far but we’re not about to slow down!

We’re so excited to see Portal Knights arrive on console and we hope you are too!
