Shovel Knight fans can soon look forward to plague bearing, since Yacht Club Games just announced that Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows will release as a free update on September 17th for all platforms. In it, players control Plague Knight in an all-new alchemical adventure and challenge mode.But the catch is, you must complete the Shovel Knight's main story before you can take on Plague Knight's adventure. Those who somehow lost their progress or are playing on a different platform, Yacht Club Games is willint to share a special code that will automatically unlock the new content so you can get straight to playing. Can't ask for much more than that.
