There’s another huge update coming to The Binding of Isaac and, apparently, this one will really be the final update for the game.

Named The Binding of Isaac: Repentance, the new update is – to quote creator and mastermind behind the dead baby rogue-like, Edmund McMillen – “yet another FINAL FINAL FINAL mega expansion” to the game.

“It’s basically a sequel at this point, and it’s fucking amazing!” says McMillen over on the game’s Steam page.

The game is currently over 90% done, according to the developer, who has been working closely with the team to ensure that this is the “Sequel DLC” that many players have been hankering for since the release of The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth + some five years ago.

McMillen notes that the game will be coming to PC and ‘consoles’, but he’s in the dark about the process on that side of things.

Expect more information coming via the game’s Steam page and blog “in the second half of October”.

“Experience the modern classic, The Binding of Isaac, like you’ve never seen it before,” says the DLC’s official Steam page.

“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 release date for the DLC is pegged as 31 Dec 2020 on the Steam page, but that’s not set in stone – as you can see from the tweet below.
