Hi everyone and welcome to our latest Portal Knights community blog!
So… What’s new in our world? Well, if you’ve been keeping an eye on our channels, you’ll know that the team are hard at work on our next major update, for both PC and console. Now we know the first thing you’re probably wondering is “when will it be available to download?” Well, we don’t have a launch date to announce just yet, but stay tuned! We hope to be able to unveil more information in the coming weeks.
Speaking of our update, we know many of you are curious to know what’s coming. We don’t want to give away EVERYTHING just yet, but we can talk about a couple of features, one which we unveiled earlier this week and one which we’re going to tell you about right now.
Update v 1.1 News
Vertical Split Screen
We hear you! When we launched Portal Knights last month, we saw a number of tweets and messages from players requesting vertical split-screen. As part of update v 1.1, our community will be able to play multiplayer in either horizontal or vertical split-screen mode. Now, we know this isn’t for everyone, which is why our players will have the option to switch between the two, in the ‘Settings’ option in-game.
A new pet is coming!
Earlier this week, we began to tease a new piece of content across our social channels. You guys shared our tweets, left a lot of guesses in our comments and some of you even guessed correctly! 😉 As you can see from our banner, we’re super excited to be introducing a pet dog to Portal Knights as part of Update v 1.1! We know our community have been asking us for a dog for some time now, so we’re making it happen! Let us know what you think over on our social channels. We’d love to hear your thoughts.

Yes! We hear you and this is a feature we will be bringing to PC in the near future. We know how much you guys want to see this, but it’s not an easy request to bring to game, which is why it’s taking a while.
