Shovel Knight is getting a large new expansion entitled Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows. To sweeten the pot, Yacht Club Games also announced that it will be free to those who purchased the main game.
The expansion was revealed during PAX East, and the developer plans to show more during the convention. Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows will star Plague Knight, a boss from the main game, as he fights his way through new bosses and enemies.
As of now, the developer has not specified a release date for the expansion.
On April 21st, Shovel Knight will also dig its way onto the PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation Vita.
Shovel Knight was one of my favorite games of 2014, and I couldn’t be more excited for this expansion. It sounds like Yacht Club Games is adding a decent amount of content considering it’s free to anyone who purchased the main game.
