Portal Knights Delayed With a Free Trial Coming in April

By Kelly Packard,
Portal Knights' full release has been delayed into May from its original April 28th release date. However, a free trial that is launching on April 20th should help ease the pain of players who were looking forward to the sandbox action RPG.


The trial doesn't offer the full experience, but players will be able to test their hand at several of the features. The ability to transfer a character created during the trial to the full version of the game at launch will also be available.

  • Character Creation: Choose between ranger, mage and warrior and customize avatar appearance through a powerful editor. Explore the levelling up and skills system to forge a unique Portal Knight and assign it a companion pet which will join in the adventure.
  • Learn the Basics: Hone tactical combat skills by facing fearsome blobs during the day and 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.
  • Single Player and Co-Op: The trial version let’s players to experience the game both in single and in multiplayer thanks to the co-op offline mode for two-player split screen. Join forces to build structures, explore dungeons, defeat monsters, complete quests, trade items on the first island.
  • Transfer in-game progress 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!
Portal Knights now launches for Playstation 4 on May 19th in Europe and May 23rd in North America.
