505 Games proudly announces a new action-packed, 3D sandbox role-playing game, PORTAL KNIGHTS, debuting on PC (Steam), beginning February 25. The brand new original IP transports players into exciting realms of magic, monsters and mystery, unlike anything they’ve played before. 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) player classes.
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.
