Ready for the final adventure for Hollow Knight? A free third expansion is coming to the game early this year, entitled Gods & Glory, and it sounds like it is going to add a huge amount of content to an already impressive game. Developer Team Cherry released a trailer to introduce the expansion, as well as what players can expect to see in Gods & Glory. Check out the trailer and features below:
Not a lot offered there, but the description of Hollow Knight: Gods & Glory will provide a bit more detail:
- A new character and quest. This seems to be the main draw, as players will hunt down the Godseeker, who is described as “disturbing and alluring.” It also hints that you will be able to romance the Godseeker.
- New bosses, all tied into the Godseeker’s quest.
- A new game mode, joining the regular mode and Steel Soul mode. The announcement gives no hints as to what the mode is, other than that it is a “classic for the genre.” Speedrunning? Boss rush? We’ll see.
- New music, new charms, and other surprises to uncover.
Overall, Gods & Glory sounds like it will be a substantial addition to Hollow Knight. The announcement also says that it is the end of the quest, and also that it will be completely free. Hollow Knight was nominated for several awards on its release last year, including several indie game nods and platformer nods, as well as many “Best Debut” awards for Team Cherry.
Hollow Knight is a Metroidvania platformer with a beautiful graphical style, available on PC and the Nintendo Switch. We quite liked the original game, calling it “a delight to explore from beginning to end” in our five-star review. No official release date for Hollow Knight: Gods & Glory has been announced, but the reveal said we could expect it “early 2018.”
