According to the Yacht Club Games website, the Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows expansion is almost here. To get Shovel Knight fans excited, they have released a new trailer showing off some in-game footage from the upcoming expansion. Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows is free for owners of Shovel Knight. The expansion puts you in the shoes of Plague Knight, as he embarks on an adventure of his own. He specializes in alchemy, giving him a different play style than Shovel Knight. More updates detailing the new campaign in Plague of Shadows are coming very soon according to the website. That should help hold fans over until the Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows expansion launches sometime in the not too distant future.
The Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows expansion had completed development on August 5th, and is now in the “Submission Phase”. In other words, the developer is coordinating with other teams to get the game ready for launch on each of the systems it is coming out on. There isn’t much time left until the expansion launches to Shovel Knight fans everywhere. In fact, their website says that the release of Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows is “immanent”. Check out the brand new trailer below and see what Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows has to offer.
