Hey, shadowy scythe spinners! Today, we summon the very first in-depth look at the prequel to Shovel Knight… Specter of Torment! Take a look:

Here’s a link to download a 60fps HD .mp4! (If you saw the preview on The Game Awards and want to see it again- here’s the shorter version we released there).

Whoah! Did you get everything!? 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!

Does that sound like a new game?! Well, that’s because we’re building Specter of Torment from the ground up so that it can be a completely unique standalone experience.

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.

For a better breakdown of how Specter Knight controls, check out this piece.

Stay tuned to this space as we conjure up even more amazing Shovel Knight experiences in 2017! It’s going to be a fun year!
