Shovel Knight Specter of Torment

It's been quite a while since we've seen any Shovel Knight news, given that the game was released over two years ago. However, developer Yacht Club Games has decided that now is the time to reveal the second of three promised Shovel Knight expansions: Specter of Torment. Following last year's Plague of Shadows release, Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment will feature an entirely new campaign with a new playable character: Specter Knight. The expansion will be free on all platforms and is set to launch during the Spring of 2017.

Shovel Knight received critical acclaim from us and many others and is a perfect example of Kickstarter and Indie game done right. Yacht Club promised a lot to gamers during their Kickstarter campaign and then they delivered. After the release of an excellent standalone adventure, we're seeing huge free updates to the game two years after the release. If you've yet to give Shovel Knight a try, it's available in physical and digital form on Wii U and 3DS alongside many other platforms. Forget about the Plague of Shadows update released free last year? You should probably go play that too.
