Knights of Valour on PlayStation 4 was initially shut down on June 17th, 2019 across Asian territories including Hong Kong and Japan. Western publisher Games in Flames then announced on April 6th, 2020 that the Australian, European, and North American versions of the game would be shut down on July 6th, 2020. The announcement follows:
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 game was likely shut down due to the cost of maintenance versus the number of active players willing to spend money on in-game currency and downloadable content.
