Team Cherry Reveals New Free Content Pack for Hollow Knight

Hollow Knight's second free content pack brings along with it a new story quest and a variety of other features.

Team Cherry recently announced Hollow Knight's second content pack, called "The Grimm Troupe". This expansion releases on Halloween this year, and will offers a variety of new features. The developer also made it a point to note that it will be free for all players. 

Chief among the new features in the pack is a new quest, which the developers say involves the Nightmare Lantern and "a twisted ritual that stretches the breadth of the kingdom". It ultimately provides the player with a powerful new ally as well. Within the new quest, Team Cherry promises new "epic" boss fights that will the player against an ominous red spirit, among others.

"The Grimm Troupe" also introduces 4 new charms and a variety of new foes to test the player's skills. The Troupe contains friendly critters too -- some of which Team Cherry says will end up on your side.

Last of all, the expansion gives players the chance to create custom map markers to help them find their way through Hollownest, and introduces new music for the adventure. The new quest and features may be accessed at any point in the game, and the pack will be included in the Switch launch as well, though no definitive date was given for that launch.
