Portal Knights for PC, PS4 and etc. is a fantasy game that combines the mechanisms of RPG with elements and style of sandbox productions like Minecraft. Project was developed by Keen Games studio, the creators of Sacred 3.
Game takes us to a fantasy realm made of blocks, that is composed of dozens of islands, connected by magic portals. Centuries ago, the world was torn to pieces and the main task of the player is to find a way to merge it together again. Story in this game plays a relatively small role and is nothing more than a pretext for playing.
Portal Knights for PC, PS4 and etc. belongs to the action RPG genre, and as in most productions of this type, before we start the adventure we have to create a hero. We do it by determining protagonist's sex, appearance, and above all, we choose one of three professions – warrior, mage and ranger. Wide range of abilities and equipment allow us to easily match the character with our playing style.
During the adventure, we have to explore lands and dungeons lying there, complete quests, develop the character and fight enemies. Combat system is heavily arcade and in addition to fights with standard enemies, we'll also encounter clashes with powerful bosses. In addition to all of this, comes a building aspect characteristic for sandbox games like Minecraft.
Within its framework, we collect resources and then use them to construct new items, of which there's more than a hundred in total. There is also a possibility to construct our own buildings. All maps are randomly generated. Player can play alone or with up to three companions in co-op mode.
