Fancy a bit of new content for the award winning Portal Knights on Xbox One, PS4 and Steam? You’re in luck as today sees the arrival of not just the biggest free update yet, but also the launch of the Elves, Rogues and Rifts DLC pack.

So, dealing with the latter first, the Portal Knights Elves, Rogues and Rifts DLC is now available for purchase, bringing with it never before seen content in which you get to play as a new Elvish race, complete with proper Elf hairstyles and ears! There is also a new Rogue class – should you be into the whole stabby stabby thing – whilst roguelite rifts bring randomly generated dungeons full of traps, puzzles, and loot!

  • The Elvish City and Rogue’s Guild. Brand new environments packed with quests and political intrigue.
  • Players who buy the DLC will be able to invite their friends to join them in these new areas so they can preview expansion content for free.

But that’s not the only Portal Knights news and to accompany the DLC is a new free update for all PC and console players – the QUESTING UPDATE. This sees a new city emerge, a multitude of additions for those interested in Creative Mode, multiplayer options to enjoy, a new quest log and hundreds of bug fixes, performance enhancments and more.

  • Public multiplayer games and user permissions. PC and PS4 players can now choose to host or join public multiplayer games that will be visible to all players – not just friends. To help protect your buildings and treasure, hosts will be able to set user permissions.
  • New Quest Log. Players can keep track of their quests as they travel from island to island and can choose which ones to track.
  • Much, much more! Hundreds of quality of life updates, bug fixes, performance optimizations, and other surprises.
