    Are there any plans to include more variations of wood/stone/other building materials in the future? I’d love to travel to specific islands to get specific materials for building.

    Thanks for being awesome and giving us such a great experience in Portal Knights. I’m working on a creation right now that I’m excited to share in the near future.

    Hi there folks, i have some questions, i hope i don’t overwhelm you.

    1) Will PK be available for preorder from Amazon?
    2) PK is 15$ on PC, is that the same price point for console?
    One of 505’s other sandbox games charges twice as much on console than steam.
    3) Is there any plans on a loyalty discount for people who already purchased the game on PC?
    One of your competitors knocked a % off their price for people who had already purchased their product for 6 months
    after console launch.
    4) Will this game have dedicated servers or is it p2p still?
    5) Will the player limit still be 4 players?
    6) Will the updates for all 3 platforms hit simultaneously or trickle down months after PC receives it?
    7) Will world generating, render distance, etc… be the same as on console as it is on pc?

    thanks for addressing these.

      yeahhhhh but GS isn’t a reliable source, they do a lot of space fillers until details are given. But seeing as Terraria was 15 on pc and 30 on console (another 505 game), i dont doubt it. I just hope they sell them on amazon, prime members get 20% off all preorders.

      See answers below…

      Hi there folks, i have some questions, i hope i don’t overwhelm you.

      1) Will PK be available for preorder from Amazon?
      YES! 🙂 You can pre-order Portal Knights from Amazon now!

      2) PK is 15$ on PC, is that the same price point for console?
      No, it won’t be. $15 is our Early Access price, and this will increase once we launch. This is due to the sheer amount of new features and additional content that have been added.

      3) Is there any plans on a loyalty discount for people who already purchased the game on PC?
      Unfortunately not! 🙁 We’re unable to offer a discount for people who purchased the game on PC. We will however, be giving those who joined us during Early Access some bonus items. Stay tuned for more info.

      4) Will this game have dedicated servers or is it p2p still?
      We do not have plans for dedicated servers for PK.

      5) Will the player limit still be 4 players?
      We have no plans to increase the player limit above 4 players.

      6) Will the updates for all 3 platforms hit simultaneously or trickle down months after PC receives it?
      In an ideal world, updates will come out at the same time across all 3 platforms. We’re going to sync our updates the best we can, be rest assured!

      7) Will world generating, render distance, etc… be the same as on console as it is on pc?
      The team are currently in the optimization phases of the console edition. Stay tuned for more info!

    Hi! I was wondering if there are any plans to change/tweak the amount of ore/gems it takes to refine into ingots, dust etc. as well as the amount it takes to craft certain things? In my experience it can take a lot of time to travel around worlds, find ores and mine enough of them to craft items.

    Also, are you planning on tweaking the general difficulty of the game or are you happy with the difficulty the game currently has?
    Thanks!

      Many of our players use the Steam forums right to have discussions, which is totally understandable.

    PK_CM505, your reply to Choras_Den’s third question was “… however, be giving those who joined us during Early Access some bonus items. Stay tuned for more info.”.

    Will these items be exclusive to the Steam version or can they be unlocked on the console versions after launch?

    For example, if I get the PS4 copy on April 28th will my Pioneer Cape and Flag be available or is this exclusive to the Steam copy?

    Thanks.

      thats a good question. The loyalty bonus items, are they for pc only or will console be able to reap the rewards too.

    Will it have a platinum is a good question.

      Everything I’ve researched said it will carry over to retail version. Here’s hoping that’s the truth, built up a large base and filled bags with plenty of stuff needed for a grand adventure!

    It’s in the console FAQ :

    Q: I’m building a base and want to carry my save over to the full game at launch. Can I do that?
    A: Absolutely! Your save data is safe and if you go onto purchasing Portal Knights, your data will carry over at launch.

    Hello,
    I purchased the preorder for this on xbox one. After the purchase I realized the bonus item version of the preorder. Will I still receive those items?

    If you preordered the game (by purchasing the preorder edition) you should get the bonuses.
    At least the pionner pack.

    Hi there

    Just wanted to say that I’m loving this game! I think it has a lot of potential.

    As for questions, I’m playing on the PS4 and I’m wondering how to pass the night time. I can’t seem to sleep on beds to pass the time. Theres no option to?

    Also, can there be an option to make the selected blocks more solid in colour. My friends say I’m blind half the time and its probably true because when i select a block to dig or place, the colour of it is a bit hard to see cos its transparent with a small blue line and blue design on corners. I was wondering if you could change this in settings and make it more of a solid colour for blind bats like myself.

    Thank you

    Just wanted to know if there was a way to turn the brightness up in this game because as soon as it turns night or in dungeons etc.. it’s almost impossible for me to see the game as I have bad eye sight and I can’t turn the brightness up on my screen anymore?

    I have the Xbox version, and I’m just wondering if online mode is invite only. I have xbox live “friends” that can be real trolls, and I don’t want them to have the ability to just join my game and start griefing me because they think it’s a funny prank to pull. I’m going to be playing offline until I can be sure that online mode is safe. Thanks. -Jenna-

    Are Events meant to spawn so infrequently?

    I am now 30 and farming the Hard Mode bosses, and all in all, I have seen about 10 events in all that time.

    Is this intended?

    Hi there. I am having a blast playing portal knights on PS4. I haven’t really had any problems as of yet aside from a minor hiccup I’ve noticed. Occasionally when I’m hunting for an item in my chests the chest will remain open and the game will freeze me in place until I reopen the inventory and “force close” the chest. Also is there a way to sort my inventory? Perhaps a way to make all chests connected so that I don’t have to run around my home and open each and every chest to find the one off item I’m looking for. Thanks for the help.

    Hello,

    i have a few questions for you guys about the game,

    1:Currently you can only grow certain plants in specific islands, which is totally understandable due to the different climate, but are there any plans for the future to put certain islands in your favourites?
    Cause i have multiple farms on each islands to grow plants needed for flasks etc and it’s a real hassle to keep track where i planted stuff. Or are there any plans to add specific biome blocks so that we can for example make a ice or lave room at our base and grow our plants there?

    2:I am currently trying to progress on the hard mode bosses, but since i play solo it’s quite challenging,
    are these fights meant to be done solo or in group?
    Cause with the electro worm i can’t dps the worm tails down fast enough without them disappearing. And if i manage to kill off 3 of them it comes down to luck on number 4 to reach it in time and kill him.

    3:My last question is the easiest one, are there any plans for adding a auto sort function to the games for chests and inventory. Or at least someway to lable our chests?

    If you could give me an answer on these questions it would be greatly appreciated 🙂

    First, I want to start off by mentioning that my wife and I just bought Portal Knights a few days ago on our PS4’s and on our first session we played 6 hours straight. I would like to thank you guys for creating a well built, entertaining, game. Usually my wife and I don’t spend the much time playing games but we’re hooked with portal knights. With that being said I would like to ask a few questions.

    1: Is the PS4’s version of the game the same as the PC? I always disliked how Minecraft and Terraria had different versions when It came to PC vs. Console, usually PC would be several updates ahead of the consoles.

    2: Are you guys planning on making the level cap higher?

    Again, thank you guys for bringing Portal Knights to console, because of it my wife and I have a new game we can invest hours into!

    I purchased the game digitally on launch day. It was not a pre-order so I didn’t get the Rainbow Island (or other) DLC. If I now purchase a physical game on disc (gold throne edition) can I still get the DLC. Playing on XBOX One.
