Portal Knights Update Will Add Vacant Islands

By Lucy Wood, 1 month ago
An upcoming update for action RPG Portal Knights will add Vacant Islands and additional new content, including quests, enemies, characters, gear, spells and enemy invasion events.


According to developer keen games, the addition of Vacant Islands is a response to requests from players wanting a creative zone where they can freely build structures and store treasures. Vacant islands can be accessed via in-game merchants and will not require any clearing of monsters or buildings before players begin to use them.

Another popular request from players has been for an increase in the frequency of random events in universes. The v1.2 update will cause them to occur every hour as well as adding two new invasion events, making it far quicker to grind towards the Dedicated Knight in Portal Knights achievement.

The Portal Knights v1.2 update will be available on consoles soon. Players will need to regenerate their worlds to see the changes in existing universes using a regenerate feature that will be added to the universe selection screen.
