The free Shovel Knight expansion Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows has been released. This is a free expansion where players take on the role of #PlagueKnight with a whole #new #campaign. This also adds a ton of new features including alchemy and a long awaited Challenge Mode.
The catch, players will need to finish the core story of Shovel Knight to start the Plague of Shadows gameplay. But Yacht Club Games have promised to issue a code that will allow players to drop into the new content if you lost your save file or changed platforms.
