Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows

Recommended Posts

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!

Free! For people who bought Shovel Knight, obviously. Which is everyone.

Awesome! And free as well? That's incredible. This will generate so much good will for Yacht Club Games. I for one will not hesitate to buy any of their future games.

Rather surprised Shovel Knight didn't have its own thread, unless I'm a victim of Rllmuk's fantastic search function. Love love love this game, finished it yesterday and just beginning NG+.

I made it a lot harder for myself at times - having looked at the achievements, I tried to do some bits without using magic just to train myself for more difficult runs. Daft, but fun.

It's really not that terrible, and I hate boss rushes :)

They're all easier than before as you'll be powered up now, and you can heal completely after each one.

Started playing this over the weekend. It's quite hard isn't it? And quite brilliant too.

Could we change the thread title to say main game discussion?

I love it. It's actually more difficult than Bloodborne and has that same rush when you beat a boss. How big is the game? I'm about 5 or 6 bosses in now.

There are 9 main bosses, not including the final boss, but a fair few other mini-bosses and optional areas to keep you entertained along the way. I think it took me around 12 hours to complete, and I probably paid about £12 for it, but it's definitely worth it. I don't think it's too much of a spoiler to say that there's a post-game hard mode, too, but I wasn't man enough to attempt it. Lots of Easter eggs as well!

The NG+ is not that much different. So far the only increase in difficulty is losing two hearts per getting hit and much less food drops. If you completed NG, I doubt NG+ gives you insurmountable challenges.
