Hollow Knight Gods and Glory launching in August as a free update

Team Cherry has announced today that the final piece of Hollow Knight content will be launching for free next month. Hollow Knight Gods and Glory is the final chapter in the story and will come to both PC and Nintendo Switch.

The all-new content won’t cost anything and will include new NPCs, bosses and an all-new mode.

A short trailer was released alongside the announcement which shows some of the new environments and bosses players will be able to tackle.

Hollow Knight Gods and Glory

In addition to Hollow Knight Gods and Glory, Team Cherry has announced that Hollow Knight Gods & Nightmares, the second Hollow Knight album, will be released on August 9 on Steam, Bandcamp, iTunes and Spotify.

The new album is by Christopher Larkin and features all-new music from Hollow Knight.

Finally, Hollow Knight on Switch received an update recently to provide bug fixes and stability. Full patch notes below.

Hollow Knight Gods and Monsters will be available, free, on August 23 on PC and Switch.
