Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is now available, offered for free to all owners of the first Shovel Knight game

Yacht Club Games has announced the release of Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment on Steam. What’s really cool here is that Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is included with all versions of Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove. As such, owners of the first game will get this one for free.

Shovel Knight: Specter of Torment is the action-packed prequel to Shovel Knight. In this game, players take control of Specter Knight, servant to the Enchantress, in a quest to recruit a cadre of knights and create the Order of No Quarter.
