The Binding of Isaac will soon receive a beefy update in the form of the "Afterbirth" DLC. Developer Edmund McMillen promised the community that the update will contain at least "100-200 hours" of new content.
Whether or not if McMillen is exaggerating the numbers a bit, this is still looking to be quite a big update for the game; fans rejoice! Some new content we can look forward to includes:
- 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... :|
What intrigues us the most are the "new co-op babies" that will be featured in the DLC. Already with over 200 babies that are randomly chosen for the co-op player to assume during a run, we can't wait to try out any of the new ones ourselves!
As of right now, no official date has been revealed by the dev, but he said that we can expect to see it around "the middle of this year". Hopefully all versions of the game, including the PS4 version, Binding of Isaac Rebirth, will received the update around the same time.
