This will be 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.
Plague Knight will also play differently to Shovel Knight. Yacht Club have provided new information on the character to help players understand the new masked friend in game.
Shovel Knight is available on Linux, Mac, PC, PlayStation 3, PS4, Vita, 3DS, Wii U and Xbox One.
