The console versions of My Time At Portia, the farming/crafting game that takes place in the world's most easygoing post-apocalypse, is receiving an update. The upcoming My Time At Portia update adds features that'll bring the game in line with the PC version.

My Time At Portia update crafted

For those who haven't played it, My Time At Portia is a game similar to Harvest Moon and Stardew Valley. You move to the town of Portia, take over your father's old workshop, and do a variety of jobs for the inhabitants. Surprisingly enough, the game takes place in the post-apocalypse. Despite this, there are few, if any, horrible mutants or gangs of raiders.

Early this morning, Team 17's website announced a My Time at Portia update that'll release "in the coming weeks." The update will feature bug and quality of life fixes as well as features from the PC version. Some of the features in the update include:

  • New main story content and additional ending
  • New side quests – including NPC quests and post-marriage spouse quests
  • New facial types as well as facial hair and decorations
  • Family features – having and adopting babies
  • Birthday selection for players
  • Party system – celebrate birthdays with a birthday party at your workshop!
  • New clothing and furniture
  • Game speed adjustment option – adjust how quickly time passes in game
  • Quality of life changes including; information filter on the map, UI changes (such as time display during fishing), adjustments to drop rates of items and adjustments to mission times.
  • Rumble/vibration features for controllers
  • Multiple crash fixes
The team adds that they're looking into improving loading times and input lag which have plagued console versions, most notably the Nintendo Switch. In addition, they're going to add more background music, ambient noise, and sound effects. Also, they've also listed some future plans for updates, including voice-overs, changing the text size for better UI visibility, and the option to adjust the display area of the game.

There's no hard date for the update's release. My Time at Portia was released on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch earlier this month, and is also available on PC.
