Out next month on PC, PS4 and Xbox One, the Portal Knights trial provides an opportunity for players to explore the first island in both single and multiplayer modes, and learn the basics of combat and crafting.

Here’s everything included in the trial, per the press release:

  • Make your hero: Choose your class between warrior ranger and mage and customize your avatar appearance through a powerful editor. Explore the first island to level up your hero and forge your unique Portal Knight by assigning attribute points and learning unique talents. You can even find a pet companion which will join you in the adventure.
  • Learn the basics: Hone your tactical combat skills by facing fearsome blobs during the day and the 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.
  • Adventure alone or with your friends: The Trial version will allow you to experience the game both in single and in multiplayer thanks to the offline coop mode for 2 players split screen. Join forces to build structures, explore dungeons, defeat monsters, complete quests, trade items and journey on the first island, Squire’s Knoll.

All in-game progress saved from the trial is transferable to the full game upon purchase.
