Yacht Club Games has revealed details on its upcoming Shovel Knight expansion, Plague of Shadows. The expansion will be free to owners of the original game and is slated for a Q2 2015 release.

From their blog:

In this adventure, 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!

The studio promises that Shovel Knight: Plague of Shadows will deliver “a new play style, new story, new bosses, and more,” including a new alchemy crafting system.

Plague of Shadows will be on-hand and playable at PAX East at the Yacht Club Games booth.
