The Binding of Isaac is a game that just won't die. (Ironic, really, as most of its players will have died more than a few times in the depths of its basement.) After being re-made and expanded as TBoI: Rebirth, that remake is now getting DLC—delightfully called 'Afterbirth'.
Over at the BoI blog (opens in new tab), Isaac creator Edmund McMillen rounds up what's in Afterbirth. Ew, gross.
- 100+ new items
- A new game mode that will "totally change how you play".
- 10 new challenges
- New playable character
- New alternate final chapter
- New alternate floors
- New endings
- New final bosses
- Tons of new bosses and enemies
- New items, cards, pills, etc.
- New achievements and rewards for beating the game on hard
- New co-op babies
- New transformations
A lot, then. In all, McMillen estimates the expansion could extend the Zelda-like roguelike's play time by 100-200 hours.
In addition, it looks like the original Binding of Isaac will be getting an update too. That game's programmer, Florian Himsl, is adding additional hard-mode versions of bosses. Here's an update video showing how these elite bosses will work.
