A new post on the Binding of Isaac development blog showed up earlier today, giving a general update on what’s going on with the baby & poop themed rougelike. Specifically, a bunch of info on the new DLC update for Binding of Isaac: Rebirth were revealed. The blog post revealed that players can expect the new DLC, titled Afterbirth, to contain:
– 100+ new items
– a full new game mode that will totally change how you play
– 10 new challenges
– a new playable character
– a new alternate final chapter
– new alt floors
– new game endings
– new final bosses
– tons of new bosses and enemies
– new item pickups, cards, pills, etc.
– tons of new achievements and rewards for beating the game on hard
– new co-op babies
– new transformations
and more, apparently! On top of that, it was revealed that there would be a free update coming to the original version of the game, but only for players who also own the Wrath of the Lamb DLC pack that was released for that version. Besides fixing some bugs here and there, the new update will include a hard mode and “eternal” versions of bosses, which will be much harder to fight than the normal bosses.
A release date isn’t set in stone yet, but the developers hope to have this stuff out by the middle of the year.
