Yacht Club Games has gone to impressive lengths to deliver on crowdfunding promises and to keep expanding the brilliant Shovel Knight. As expected it released fresh footage of the next expansion during The Game Awards - Specter of Torment.

What's fascinating is that it'll be a "completely unique standalone experience" that's also described as a prequel, but it will still be a free update just like Plague of Shadows before it. Check out an official description and trailer below.

You'll not only play through Specter Knight's own story, but also see new areas, new music, new enemies, new objects, new boss fights, new weapons, new armors, and way, way more than ever before. Even the villainous boss knights have prepared new tricks and tactics!

While Plague of Shadows followed an alternate parallel campaign, Specter Knight travels a new path in this amazing prequel. It's your mission as Specter Knight to recruit the Order of No Quarter for The Enchantress! Specter Knight's campaign truly is his own adventure, and we can't wait for everyone to get their hands on it this Spring.
