Portal Knights Community Q&A – August 2017

By Antonela Pounder @AnimatedAnt (Community Manager – 505 Games)

A couple of weeks ago, we gave you guys the opportunity to send us your questions for our team to answer. Well, we’ve picked out a handful of them and provided answers below. Check ‘em out…

Question – Christy Chz – Are there gonna be new pets?
PK – Maybe, maybe not! Watch this space… 😉

Question – Anthony Cool – When will the game be coming to the Nintendo Switch?
PK – We don’t have a launch date to share right now, but when we do, we will certainly let you guys know!

Question – Evan Logan – Are we getting more classes in the future?
PK – Classes play a huge part in Portal Knights and we’d love to introduce more of them in the future!

Question – Slater Karp – When could we expect the ability to be on separate islands on multiplayer?
PK – This is a feature that we’ve recently introduced to Steam, originally as part of a beta branch. If you want to check it out, head over to our Steam page for more info. As for console, we can’t promise this feature right now. It’s certainly something we’d like to bring to PS4 and Xbox One, but it’s not an easy feature to introduce.

Question – Comanche Native – Will we be able to use the chairs and beds?
PK – Bringing functionality to more of the furniture in PK is something we know our community are asking for but right now, we don’t have any additional info to share.

Question – MalDrakon – Any plans for new bosses in the future?
PK – Bosses play a major part in Portal Knights and we know you guys want to see more of them! Absolutely no promises right now, but we hear you.

Question – WTFTVDwriters – Any plans to expand on the role playing aspect of the game or the lore?
PK – Yes – Absolutely! Stay tuned.

Question – cjhague99 – When will Mac support become a thing?
PK – Unfortunately, we don’t have any plans to bring Portal Knights to Mac. Our focus right now is on PS4, Xbox One, Steam and Nintendo Switch.

Question – WhyteNynja – Can you add random NPCs come to your home island and maybe spend a day or permanently stay there so our homes don’t feel so empty?
PK – Great suggestion and one we will pass onto the team!

Question – Wanamingo – Do you want to release future content as update or as DLC?
PK – Both! The plan is to keep updating Portal Knights as we have been doing since we went into Early Access back in 2016 and release DLC separately.

Question – @soonpirateking – What feature of your game is your favorite or are you most proud of?
PK – Ooo this is a great question and we’re sure the answer may vary depending on who you speak to! We’re super proud of our latest feature, which allows our Steam players to play together on different islands. This has taken a while to get into game but you guys seem to be loving the feature and that means everything to us!

A big thank you goes out to everyone who asked us a question! This is definitely something we would like to keep on doing, so please, if you have any burning questions, head over to our social channels, leave them there and we’ll answer as many of them as we can in our next Q&A blog…

Speak soon! 🙂
