The guys over at Yacht Club Games, who were behind the nearly flawless Shovel Knight game that released last year. Have announced a new DLC add on that comes at the very reasonable price of “free”. Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows.
Don’t be swayed, this isn’t just a pallet swap either. This campaign lets you play as Plague Knight, one of the former bosses from the main game. He’s on a quest all his own and to complete it he must go up against his former allies, play through redesigned levels and new bosses and enemies. Add in an alchemy system and it looks like a meaty add on that won’t cost you anything but hard drive space.
Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows is a free expansion for Shovel Knight, a sweeping classic action adventure game that won over 70 Game of the Year Awards in 2014. You play as Plague Knight, the villainous master of alchemy, in a quest all his own. Using his maniacal scientific mind, Plague Knight is seeking to concoct Serum Supernus, the Ultimate Potion. However, to retrieve these ingredients, he must extract them from his former allies… the villainous knights of the Order of No Quarter! World class platforming, music, storytelling, and art all return in Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows; an explosive quest with a new play style, new story, new bosses, and more!
You can find Shovel Knight on Nintendo Wii U, Nintendo 3DS, Sony PS3, Sony PS4, Sony Vita, PC, Mac and Linux
