    Yus, Hidden Dreeeams.

    Fun little update. Couple of new bosses, super fun fights, and apparently you can fight them as many time as you want (and they get harder every time!) so something for people who like a challenge. Once was enough for me, thanks! You also get some new fast travel options - the new upgrade for the Dream Nail lets you set a waypoint wherever you want that you can teleport to whenever you want. You can get it about halfway through the game, so it would probably really help with traveling and speedruns.

    Team Cherry has said there will be two more free DLC updates akin to this one, and at some point in the future a paid DLC with a second character. This game has become an instant classic and one of my favorites really fast, on par with Super Metroid and Symphony of the Night. It's like the most awesome incarnation of the genre I've ever played.

    The new fights were pretty good theme-wise, but I didn't really like the mechanics of either (too much random jumping around) and definitely don't like the 'difficulty' of them hitting for 6 masks a hit.

    A bit underwhelmed with this update, good thing it's free!

    Reddit AMA for the team is happening!

    Lots of fun questions being answered, and confirms that the next free update pack is being developed, with a third on the way, and word is they'll be bigger than Hidden Dreams (which was fun but admittedly was not exactly huge).

    I'm enjoying the game so far, but there isn't much to spend money on yet.

    Oh there's a thread for this, I'd run a search but it didn't come up.

    So. This game is fucking amazing. And the difficult parts, which are frequent, make me mad. But in a good way for the most part... UNTIL the White fucking Palace. I'm currently stuck. I can't backtrack to exit from the bench I'm saved to, and going forward is even more difficult.

    Centrism is just the cowardly way to be a bigot w/o being explicit about it.

    Yeah, White Palace is brutal. Your choice of charms can soften the difficulty if you've picked up the right ones. Spell Twister, Grubsong, and Deep Focus basically gives you infinite health since you recover enough Soul from taking hits to heal indefinitely.

    I'm doing some monster journal cleanup right now. I still haven't figured out how to open the black walls. And I still have one more challenge to go in the Colosseum thing (which I haven't even attempted). But all three of the dream things have been dealt with so I assume I can get to the end now.

    With the three dreamers you can access the final boss, yes. Beating it at this point would get you the first ending. FYI you can re-load at the last save point to keep going and unlock the rest of the stuff after.

    I don't think so. Though the dev has apparently said that this new expansion content will be included in the Switch version of HK. I'd imagine we'll see it by the end of the year, which... would have been too long to wait for me about a week ago. But suddenly, I'm overwhelmed with other Switch indies and am okay with a little more space before HK.

    Hey so the final boss.
    For the best ending.
    JESUS JUMPED UP CHRIST this is difficult. The attacks come too fast for me to register to stop moving or to get into a particular position. At least I found out that the Up+Spell finally has a practical use. I mean, the Hollow Knight himself is a goddamn chump. I whoop his ass even purposely triggering his counter attack and I just parry that shit.

    I have done it, I have beaten the final boss. That was quite a motherfucker of a fight. It took me more than a dozen tries.

    I just looked up what the features of Hidden Dreams were, since I haven't played the game without it being a part of it all, and a couple of those features seemed like they were baseline for the game. The two bosses it added are absolutely secrets (one of which I had to look up), heh. Not a TON of content but whatever, it's a game update. I wonder what specifically the Halloween update will add.

    I did a lot of poking around / achievement hunting on my file. Now all that's left literally is the Zote achievement and all the game completion related stuffs. I already wrote up a preliminary document to help me figure out the game's layout, where important things are and what route I 'should' take. I'll probably be refining it a lot. And watch the speedrunners. Because this game has its gross hooks in me right now.

    Judging by what Hidden Dreams added, Grimm Troupe already seems bigger. Sounds like there will be new regular enemies as well - I'm hoping for areas to be affected and spawn a different set of enemies, like how the Abandoned Crossroads became the Infected Crossroads. Plus new charms!

    I didn't even know they were working on another DLC (paid this time) for Hornet as a playable. That's going to be incredible.

    I really do love this game.

    I really do love this game.

    I haven't installed it on my new PC because I keep waiting for a chance to bang out the endgame and the new stuff all in one more or less continuous shot, but that might put me over the edge.

    Space... what is the point of it? You have no idea.

    I wonder how much of these free updates were originally planned content cut to make a deadline that they're now being super generous about. It's really cool of them to be doing this. :D

    Their initial Kickstarter campaign might give a bit of insight into that. Honestly, I don't see any sign in their stretch goals of any of the content released in these DLCs in their initial plan.

    It's not for the full-on Gods and Glory content pack, but there are a few neat updates, including Map Markers! Some of these changes and updates were made to be included for the upcoming Switch release, so we know that's steadily getting closer!
