May 1, 2017Written by Martin Patiño

Specter of Torment, the next expansion of the critically-acclaimed Shovel Knight is finally coming out on the PlayStation 4, PS Vita, and PS3, in Europe this week. The expansion was released in North America on the same platforms last April 25.

Here’s an overview of the expansion, which acts as a prequel to the game’s original campaign:

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is the action-packed prequel to Shovel Knight! With his scythe and preternatural agility at the ready, he can glide across the ground, clamber up walls, and command an arsenal of curious weapons.

If he carries out his duties to the Enchantress, Specter Knight may have a chance at regaining his lost humanity and breaking his chains of servitude. But what cruel tricks might the Enchantress have up her sleeve?

Specter of Torment is a free update for those who already own the original game. Others can purchase it as a standalone game or as part of the Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove collection which includes Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope, Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows, and Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment.
