The first trailer for Yacht Club Games’ prequel to Shovel Knight, Specter of Torment, has been shown tonight at The Game Awards. Specter of Torment will be a “completely unique standalone” release, according to a blog posting on the Yacht Club site.
As Specter Knight, your task will be to recruit the Order of No Quarter for The Enchantress. The developers are promising “new areas, new music, new enemies, new objects, new boss fights, new weapons, new armors, and way, way more than ever before.” A lot of newness, frankly.
Specter of Torment will be released in Spring 2017 on PC. Here’s the trailer.
