Edmund McMillen, the designer behind The Binding of Isaac, and Nicalis have released a trailer confirming the date players will be able to get their hands on the game’s final expansion. The Binding of Isaac: Repentance is set to launch on March 31st, with the DLC releasing on Steam that day. A release for consoles is confirmed too but that has not yet been dated. You can watch the release date trailer below showing Isaac in tears as he faces danger once more.
The full description for The Binding of Isaac: Repentance can be read below.
Experience the modern classic, The Binding of Isaac, like you’ve never seen it before. It’s a game too big to be called a sequel: Repentance takes Isaac to new heights of roguelike dungeon adventure, as the brave boy descends into the basement for his greatest challenge yet! Isaac’s new quest takes him to unknown places he’s never been, filled with horrible new enemies and bosses, weapon combos you’ve never synergized before and items he’s never seen… unholy terrors from his wildest dreams and worst nightmares!
The Binding of Isaac: Repentance was revealed back in 2018, and at the time no one was really sure if it would be a sequel or an expansion. Repentance follows on from The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth which released in 2017, and expanded on the base game with a new character, new chapter, new ending, and a whole load of new items. Way back in 2014, Blair wrote a beginner’s guide for players who were starting up The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth full of usual tips, and they may help you if you decide to jump into the game.
