I missed this news back in April but there’s still about two weeks left for anyone interested. Publisher Games in Flames announced on April 6th that they would be shutting down the English versions of the free-to-play, PlayStation 4 brawler Knights of Valour on July 6th, 2020.
As the dust thins out over the battlefields, the sun comes through the cloudy skies and the sounds of battle fall silent. We can say we have arrived at a point of peace and harmony. But we did not achieve this alone, also not with the help of the dragon god but with the power of each individual Knight of Valour.
Still with this, we sadly have to announce that this is the end of our journey. The Knights of Valour servers will be closed at the 6th of July 2020 as our contract with the developer comes to an end. We want to say that it was a real pleasure to be the publisher of Knights of Valour and watch over this lovely community for as long as we could. Until the final day we want to provide therefore a last thank you to all players. For their support, loyalty and critic towards the game and us.
In the last 90 days it won’t be possible to purchase from the PS Store anymore. But to give players, who still have savings on Goshiki Stones or who want this last milestone for their character reached, a chance to fulfill their wishes, we’ll offer over the whole period events (most of which starting 8th of April) and significant discounts up to 90% in all ingame shops, event stage entry fees and the dragon wishes.
What you can expect:
– Costs per Wish is reduced by 90%
– Silver wish offers now which each 10+1 wish 2 Goshiki Stones
– Gold wish contains exclusively mercenaries.
– Times of free and paid entries of events are increased.
– Entry fees are reduced drastically.
– Hua Xiong’s Anger and Guardian of the Magic Circle Events
– Exchange shop offers Shatters and rare Materials with huge discounts.
– Skin Package Event with no longer obtainable skins over the course of last month
– and more…
We hope you all can enjoy this last offering and find some needed distraction through these troublesome times. Again, thank you so much for being a great community.
Your Knights of Valour Team
The original Asian releases of the game were delisted back in 2019 but Games in Flames has kept things up and running for the Western world. Unlike many titles about to be shut down, you can still grab Knights of Valour and rack up a few free Trophies before it’s gone for good on July 6th.
The game was fascinating enough for me to check out back in 2017 as it’s the eleventh entry in a long-running series of Taiwanese arcade titles loosely based on the Romance of the Three Kingdoms novel (the same source material behind Dynasty Warriors). It’s got some fun mechanics during the actual fights but it was too heavy on the grinding and micro-transactions to stick with for long.
I’ve added the date to the Watch List calendar and hope to record some final footage before it’s gone for good.
