A few months ago Yacht Club Games announced a free, new expansion called Plague of Shadows for their popular game Shovel Knight, but we haven’t heard anything else about it until now.

According to the game’s developer, the game will be releasing very soon, and it also has a brand-new trailer to go along with it. In fact, Yacht Club Games stated on their website that the game has been completed since August 5th and is in “submission phase.”

Plague of Shadows has you taking control of Plague Knight, who has an entirely different set of moves and abilities than Shovel Knight which all come from alchemy. The expansion will feature new areas, objectives, enemies and bosses along with a new crafting Alchemy System – allowing you to get loot and craft new game and power-ups.
