Hollow Knight Free Content Pack 02: The Grimm Troupe





This Halloween, Grimm and his Troupe arrive in Hollow Knight, free for all players. What’s packed in for this chilling expansion? Let’s jump into the details!

  • New Major Quest - Light the Nightmare Lantern and summon the Grimm Troupe to Hallownest, if you dare! Take part in a twisted ritual that stretches the breadth of the kingdom and bestows the player with a powerful new ally.

  • New Boss Fights - What epic quest is complete without epic show-downs? Get ready to face off against a dark new foe and a twisted scarlet spectre. Who are they? What brings them to Hallownest? We won’t spoil the surprise!

  • 4 New Charms - We’re going all out with the quest, but that’s not enough! Your charm range is also expanding, granting unique new aids and abilities. You’ll have to discover their powers for yourself, but their appearance may give a few hints.


  • New Enemies - The arrival of the Troupe doesn’t just mean enormous boss encounters, it also brings new smaller (but challenging!) foes to test your nail and spells against. Your Hunter’s Journal is going to be overflowing by the time your done!

  • New Friends - Grimm’s clan may appear scary but they aren’t all bad. Get ready to befriend a new bunch of weirdos, including one who offers a very special service for players flush with Geo!

  • New Music - Tying this whole cavalcade together are all new spooky and spine tingling tracks by Christopher Larkin. Get ready to feel the fear!

  • Map Markers  - In a world as big as Hallownest finding your way is the greatest challenge of all, and you’ll now have an extra tool in your cartographic journeys with custom Map Markers! Place them anywhere on your maps to remember a point of interest, a difficult foe or an item just out of reach.

Grimm’s quest, and all other new features can be accessed at any point in your Hollow Knight journey. Muster your courage and summon the Troupe! Descending this Halloween.

More Languages

Alongside the arrival of the Grimm Troupe, we’ll be launching Hollow Knight in 3 new languages: Russian, Brazilian Portuguese and Japanese! Thank you to our fantastic translators for making it through HK’s enormous script without dying, and thanks to fans for all the language requests.
