by Rainier on Feb. 15, 2018 @ 10:01 a.m. PST

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 Knights includes spectacular dungeon crawling, castle building and boss fighting. Portal Knights allows 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!

Available today on Steam for PC and Mobile, the Adventurer Update provides players with exciting new characters, quests, items and overall game improvements designed to enhance the Portal Knights experience.

Key highlighted features of the Adventurer Update include:

  • New Warrior Guild: Filled with new NPCs, quests and items, players will be able to venture to Fort Finch and explore the legendary structure that once ruled the land. New items from merchants including water pumps and drains, a new drawbridge, potted plants and more offer players creative and fresh ways to build and design.
  • New Dedicated Servers (PC Only): Players can now set up their own dedicated servers to continue the adventure online even when friends are offline.
  • Dungeon Improvements: Courageous and brave players will be handsomely rewarded by discovering new treasure chests only available in the deepest, darkest corners of dungeons.
  • Treasure and Adventure Porting: Players can bring NPCs back to their home world after completing quests, allowing players to transform their vacant islands into towns, pets included! Interact with furniture and fast forward through the dangerous perils of night by sleeping in a bed.
  • Combat Improvements: More than 20 new weapons have been added across all classes, along with improvements to weapon crafting. Updates will also provide players with a new combat vignette, drop table improvements for enemies and a new backstab mechanic to deal even more damage when attacking foes from behind!
  • Cloud Saving: Pick up and play on any PC with new cloud saving feature!
  • Controller Support (Mobile Only): Portal Knights on Mobile will now support most MFi controllers

Portal Knights players on all available platforms will also be treated to an in-game Spring Festival event in celebration of Chinese New Year. This special event, running until March 5, 2018, will task players with helping the Emperor solve the mysterious troubles plaguing his island. Completing quests in this event will reward players with exclusive Spring Festival themed items and pets such as adorable pandas and dragons. Players also have the potential to unlock a brand new themed island!
