Portal Knights is transforming into a full-fledged MMORPG as the original patches on PC and the Switch


Like a blocky caterpillar spinning a chrysalis around it, Portal Knights is preparing to transform itself from a mere co-op sandbox to something far larger — even massively multiplayer, you might say.

According to the Steam announcement this week, an MMORPG version of the popular (and completely adorable) fantasy game is being developed by Duoyi Network and 505 Games in China for the Chinese market specifically. This MMO version won’t replace the current Portal Knights┬ábut will run parallel to it as a large-scale big brother to the existing title.

A free-to-play model seems to be the order of the day for the MMO. No platforms or time frame has been announced, nor do we know whether it’ll ever come west, though the game is apparently being demoed at ChinaJoy this week.

Western players in the current not-massively online version of the game are in for a treat of their own today as the questing update goes live for everyone and the latest DLC launches on the Switch.

So what do you think? Is this a good game to transform from multiplayer to massively multiplayer? Have you ever given Portal Knights a shot? Let us know in the comments!
