  • 2 New Bosses - Leap into battle with the mightiest foes! These epic new duels will test even the most skilled of players.

  • A New Stag Station Uncovered - Hallownest’s stags once travelled the breadth of the kingdom, but with the departure of the King, one station was walled away, hidden from bugs and forgotten by stags, until now!

Hollow Knight: Hidden Dreams content is accessible at any point in the game, whether starting fresh or scouring for completion.
