The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth launching just in time for Halloween

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth delivers a staggering amount of new content at the spookiest time of the year.

The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth is a much-anticipated expansion to The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth, the terrific remake of Edmund McMillen's twin-stick rogue-like. As the trailer below reveals, it can be yours on October 30.

At present our only platform guidance is that Afterbirth is launching on "Steam and other platforms", so if you're on 3DS, PS4, Vita, Wii U, Xbox One you may be waiting a little longer.
