As you may or may not know, Portal Knight will be available on consoles in EMEA on May 19th and the US on May 23rd! Portal Knights will also leave Early Access Steam at that time. If you can’t wait to play (I know I can’t!), then make sure you check out the free trial on Xbox One and Playstation 4 right now!
The free trial will let you explore the first island and give you time to practice the combat and crafting that are crucial to Portal Knights. The trial will have single and multiplayer capabilities. You can look forward to the following while playing the trial –
- Make your hero: Choose your class between warrior ranger and mage and customize your avatar appearance through a powerful editor. Explore the first island to level up your hero and forge your unique Portal Knight by assigning attribute points and learning unique talents. You can even find a pet companion which will join you in the adventure.
- Learn the Portal Knights basics: Hone your tactical combat skills by facing fearsome blobs during the day and the deadly hollow knights who come out only at night. Harness the deep crafting system and use mined resources to make new equipment and armour. Take the first step towards a homely big castle by renovating your dilapidated farmhouse and growing crops. Explore the island for a dungeon filled with skeletons and treasure, in your hunt for portal shards to open the gate to the next island. Onwards adventurer!
- Live your adventure alone or with your friends: The Trial version will allow you to experience the game both in single and in multiplayer thanks to the offline coop mode for 2 players split screen. Join forces to build structures, explore dungeons, defeat monsters, complete quests, trade items and journey on the first island, Squire’s Knoll.
- Transfer your in-game progresses to the full game: The free trial save data can be transferred to the full game once released, so players can continue their adventure from where they left off!
Of course, you can preorder the console edition now from your local retailer. If you preorder Portal Knights, you will receive the Gold Throne Pack with a new Island (Rainbow World Island).
We have some screenshots to share with you as well! Let us know in the comments if you are planning to download the trial. We would love to have a GameOctane play session in Portal Knights!
