Developer Yacht Club Games has announced the release date of the upcoming Shovel Knight expansion, Plague of Shadows.
The expansion lets you take the role of Plague Knight, and go on an “all new alchemical adventure,” similar to the game’s main storyline. Although, before you are able to hop on the new expansion. you will need to finish Shovel Knight at least once.
“Don’t forget, you’ll need to clear the game as Shovel Knight to take on Plague Knight’s adventure and Challenge Mode! If you’ve lost your save progress or switched to a new platform…well we’ll share a special code to unlock Plague Knight right from the get-go too!”
Plague of Shadows will come as a free update, on September 17 for all the featured platforms.
