Their previous expansion, Plague of Shadows, which allowed you to play as the character, was met with high demand and praise when it released back in September of 2015. Following in this expansions footsteps, Specter of Torment will allow players to take control of the fearsome Specter Knight. He’s decked out in full Grim Reaper gear and carries a menacing scythe, so you can probably expect some chilling encounters.
The next campaign is also in the works, which will be following the character King Knight on his adventures. However, other than the fact that it’s going to be featuring this character, nothing else has been said outside of this GIF.
