Hollow Knight has received an update on PC

In some surprising news, Team Cherry have today pushed out an update for the PC version Hollow Knight.


While the team is certainly full steam ahead on the follow-up Silksong, its likely this update is simply copying over AI changes/fixes that they have improved or learnt upon while working on the sequel.


Sadly we'll all have to wait a little longer for more official news from the Adelaide team regarding Silksong, after they announced last month not to expect any news this year.


Full patch notes for the update v1.5.68.11808 are below:


- Added "Borderless" option to fullscreen in video options

- 64-bit is now required (For players with 32-bit computers the previous version (1.4.3.2) can still be accessed as a beta)
